5th Class Visit Citi Bank

5th class went to Citi Bank and had a great time. We went on a bus to town. We did a lemon stand as our idea. We got a bunch of leaflets and we wrote on them.  We stuck them on the board. After that we had lunch. It was so nice. Then we got back to work. Both 5th classes went to their corners and got a board each. Then we got lunch again. That was even nicer. Then we went back to work and got into groups of fives. We did loads of work and then got a certificate. We went back to school.

On the 08.02.18 we went to Citi Bank. When we were there, we learned how to be an entrepreneur. We are taking part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme (J.E.P.) this year.

We learned how to do all of this with the example of a Lemonade Stand. We learned this in a room called the ‘Fish Bowl’.

We were split into 2 classes- Ms. Phillips’ class and Ms. Monahan’s class. Each class had their on individual ideas.

RTE’s News2day came as well. 6 people (3 from each class) were interviewed by the presenter Tommy.

The six were Jake , Tom. Ava, Matthew, Sadbh and Cara.

We were to pose like the dragons from the TV shoow ‘Dragon’s Den’

It was great fun. After lunch, we were all split into our groups: Product/design, sales, finance, and marketing.

We learned a bit of what we should do and what our responsibilities were from actual marketing, finance, product/design and sales people. After all of the learning and fun we came back to school with just enough  time to pack our bags.

Pancake Tuesday Came Early!

We decided to celebrate Pancake Tuesday today as we have our cake sale tomorrow. We were very excited as Ms. Kenealy had brought in a special pan to make the pancakes. There was lots of options for toppings. There was lemon, nutella, banana and sugar. It think it is fair to say everyone loved them! There was plenty of empty plates and full bellies. 

A Very Spiky Visitor!!!


There was a very spiky visitor to school last week!

Joanna Donnelly Visits the School



Joanna Donnelly visited our school last week. She was extremely informative and taught us lots about weather. We learned that there is more to her job than we previously had thought. She explained that she, as a meteorologist,  is responsible for predicting what the weather is going to be like. She does this by using certain equipment which helps her to estimate rain precipitation and wind strength. It was very interesting and we would like to thank her for taking the time to visit our 6th and 4th classes. 

Last week, 6th class had the greatest pleasure of meeting a meteorologist, Joanna Donnelly. Most people know her as the weather lady on RTE but today we saw what really goes int finding out the weather everyday.

Did you ever wonder how the news finds out the weather? Well Mr. Corkery and Mr. Scallan’s classes found out how. Joanna explained how in October last year a small device called an anemometer calculated the wind speed and direction of the Orphelia storm. Joanna told us a lot about her job adn how they calculate the wind, rain and if you’re going to wear shorts tomorrow! She told us how she doesn’t just go in at 6.00pm and magically go on air without any practice. She goes into work at a normal time adn once she has done the news that’s her shift over.

Joanna was very inspiring and if you want to see her you will catch her on RTE weather!
