Artist on the Wall

After the success of the mural outside the office, we decided to pick some budding artists to add their own masterpieces to the wall on the library corridor. After some trial drawings on paper and a few discussions about colour options, the children got their chance to draw the picture on the wall. Some children said drawing on the wall was quite difficult but we reckon that it will make a wonderful addition to the corridor!

6th Class Girls Write Their Own Story!

Two girls from 6th class, Carla and Ailbhe decided to be very creative during Book Week and their composed their very own story. 

For World Book Day, they came to school dressed as the two main characters in their book, carrot and cow.


Carla dressed up as a cow and Ailbhe as a carrot.

Here is their story below in a series of pictures!

It’s worth a read!

 Well done to the girls!

Rico the Therapy Dog came to visit

We are very fortunate to have the services of Rico the Therapy Dog on Thursdays.  He came around to every class to pay a visit. He was so well behaved and very cuddly.  His owner told us that she was afraid of dogs when she was little but now she owns a dog and is not scared anymore. She has helped some of our pupils with a fear of dogs and Rico has also listened to some children reading!
