Action Ireland Trust Lesotho 2018 Project – Early Childhood Development Centre

We would like to thank all parents and families for their support during our recent non-uniform day. As we explained to the pupils, our Green Flag theme this year is Global Citizenship. All monies raised will go directly  to fund the building materials for the Lesotho Early Childhood Development Centre project, where our own Ms. Judith Rogan volunteers each year.

Some more details about the project…

After 3 years of planning and design together with UNICEF, the sod was turned on site in February 2017. This pilot project will provide education and care to the 0-5 age group. This will allow mothers to work and provide a safe and secure environment for these children. At a cost of over €100,000 and part funded by the Ministry of Education and Training in Lesotho, it is hoped that the centre will be the first of many such facilities in Lesotho.





4th Class Football Tournament

Last Friday, the 21st of May, some of the boys from the two 4th classes went to Howth to play a GAA tournament with Mr. Greene and Mr. Corkery.

There were two tournaments, the cup and the plate. Mr. Corkery divided us into two teams. We each played a group stage and made it to the quarter finals. In the end we got knocked out by Howth.

Then we watched the teams play for the plate. On the way home we got a bag of popcorn, a chocolate bar and a drink. It was a great day.

Also the Samaguire was there and we got picture with it!

Sam’s Lego Animation at the Ark

Yes, this is the beast of all LEGO animations. And sure, there are other people who made other flicks but “Acrobatics and the silly basher**” is ours for generations until someone weird says “rubbish” and deletes it from social media. But seriously, I’m not bragging. And the music, it’s so intense! It sounds like Tom Daily! So my movie is about people (mainly Batman) who does a fitness course with a slightly weird looking bed. I would tell you more BUT I don’t want to be a spoiler.

Murial Outside Mr. Fitzgerald’s Office!

Not sure if you remember but the wall opposite Mr. Fitzgerald’s office was not much to look at! It looked like all the rest of the walls! We decided to put this wall to good use and give it a much needed face lift!

Before we put pencil to wall we brainstormed all of the popular book characters the children loved. Many boys and girls through out the school helped us with this process. Once we had decided what characters we wanted we began to draw and paint these on the wall. All the hard work was from Mrs. Rogan, Ms. Curtin and Mr. Corkery. A huge thanks needs to be given as a lot of hard work was put into the murial to make it a vibrant and eye catching piece of artwork which the children would enjoy. To finish off we placed three picture frames up of the last three years, picking out some key moments of each of those years!

We are very proud of the work and hope everyone else enjoys it as much as we do!
