Happy Earth Day

As part of Marine week, we are celebrating ‘Happy Earth Day’ – we have to celebrate the small things in life. Today we  celebrate through Art – we have  a 5 minute draw along tutorial to complete, and  through Science while we  research all types of fish  and below our infant boys are completing a litter marine colouring sheet just as we post this!  The boys also went under the tree in our front garden to check its girth and they gave it a big hug for Earth Day!

Marine Week and Water Safety

We are celebrating Marine Week from April 19-23.  We are going to cover everything to do with the sea!  Now that we can travel outside our 5 km limit, our boys can’t wait to visit the beaches and waterways around Dublin in the next few weeks. Our Green School team will guide the classes as they learn about types of Jellyfish  and other sea life in Ireland. We will also be looking at solutions to microplastics pollution and at what we can do to be better global citizens.

Our active school team will lead our classes in taking part in the Aquatics strand of the PE Curriculum.  We can’t get back to school swimming lessons yet but we can learn about Water Safety.  We have started the PAWS programme on water safety in all our classes.

 

 

Easter Art

Have a look at the fabulous artwork our boys have created. These pieces decorated the gates and front entrance of St Joseph’s Church celebrating Easter 2021.

 

Student Council News

Our student council met today in a socially distanced way – out in the yard. They discussed what it is like  to be back at school and why we all seem so glad to be back.  They will work with their classes to create an accurate reflection of what school means to us, what elements make us happy and what we can do to make sure  we continue to enjoy our school at its best.
