Bake Sale and Coffee Morning

On Wednesday 13th June, 6th class students held a Bake Sale and Coffee Morning to raise funds for charity. The school hall was transformed into a vibrant coffee shop where parents and friends gathered to enjoy delicious cakes and pastries. Students from all classes bought treats to have with their lunch. Thank you to all who supported our venture, especially those who donated baked goods. A total of €640 was raised and this will be shared between Trócaire and Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

The word pneumatics comes from the Greek word pneuma which means wind. Pneumatics uses trapped air to move things. Our challenge was to make a moving monster using pneumatics. We used syringes and plastic tubes to make the monster’s mouth go up and down. We made all different kinds of monsters, some were red, some were yellow, some were weird and some were cool. Here is a picture of us with our monsters. By Adam Bandyk and Frank Doran.
