Our Witch Walk


We had a fantastic Witch Walk again this year. There were lots of scary costumes and lots of face paints.

Thanks to all the Mums, Dads, grannies, granddads, big brothers and sisters for all the help getting ready.

We had great fun when we returned to school and had lovely treats from the Parents Association. We learned lots of Halloween songs and poems and did some great Halloween art too.

We look forward to our week off and wish everyone a “Happy Halloween!”

European Week of Sport (September 23rd – 30th)

We recently took part in European Week of Sport, with each class taking part in the ‘Run Around Europe’ challenge. Some classes ran to Malta, Madrid, Paris and even Disneyland! We had great fun doing DEAM (Drop Everything and Move!) and our activity homework. On Friday we did the ‘Take on the Teachers’ Challenge and we won! The teachers were no match for us!!

Moya and Eimear made some yummy chocolate brownies for him. He was delighted with the fantastic surprise on his special day.




Welcome Back from 2nd Class

We have been very busy already in Second Class this year. We are doing lots of work in our religion class. We will be receiving our First Holy Communion on the 19th of May.
