6th class along with Mrs. Gillivan entered this competition run by Westmeath County Council. The aim of the competition was to highlight the items found discarded along the roadside. Most of these items can be recycled. The children made this structure from such items. The design was inspired by the willow hut which we have in the school garden. Well done to all involved.
On Friday April 22nd we had Sport’s Day in our school. This came at the end of Active week when, each day from Monday to Thursday, all classes had a minimum of 30 minutes physical activity. The weather was brilliant and that made the week all the more enjoyable.
Sport’s Day itself was also a great success with everybody involved and enjoying the day.
As usual we ended the day with Parents’ races. Thanks to all who made this a very successful event
To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March the children dressed up as a character from their favourite book.
A prize went to the child with the best home-made costume. There was great difficulty in selecting just one winner as there were so many very imaginative costumes. Great fun was had by all.
ORAL HEALTH PROMOTION
On Monday 8th February two qualified dental nurses, Marguerite and Emma, from A.I.T. visited our school to carry out a workshop for 5th and 6th classes on oral health. This was very informative and enjoyable for all.
The pupils from these two classes will now give a similar workshop to the other classes in the school demonstrating all that they learnt on the day.
GRANDPARENTS’ DAY 2016
On the 1st February we celebrated Grandparents’ Day with a Prayer Service in St. Patrick’s Church followed by refreshments being seved back up in the school. We had a great turn out and really enjoyed having our grandparents visit our school. The Parents’ Association provided beautiful food for the occasion.
