All the girls in 1st class had a great day last Thursday on their school trip to the Pine Forest Art Centre... :o)
We explored forces in science this week. We examined pushing and pulling. We predicted the effects of forces on objects and how far they would move with different pushes and pulls. We chased marbles around the room but really we were checking out how far they rolled on different surfaces. We learned about wind power too and we decided to design and make our own windmills. We had lots of fun.
Joan, Ms Phelan and the girls in Room 16 are organising a Cake and Craft sale tomorrow, Friday 26th May.
Both 6th classes went on their school tour yesterday to Baysports in Athlone. They had a really great time with lots of activities throughout the day including paddle boarding, go-karting, kayaking and much more.. Special thanks to parents Susan Nolan and Sue Gallagher who came along to help out on the day.
See slideshow below for pictures of our action packed day.
Our Second Classes have worked very hard preparing themselves for First Holy Communion. We took a well-deserved break from the classroom and headed for the Botanic Gardens, even stopping for ice-creams on the way. Sweet!!
This week as we continue to explore 'Non-Violence' we are talking about 'Avoiding Hurting Others'. Room 15 are doing this for their homework but if anyone else would like to watch it we'd love to hear your thoughts on it too.

The mini basketball girls were treated to an excellent lesson on Tuesday by a visiting tutor, Vinnie O'Keefe. Vinnie has a wealth of experience in paying and coaching basketball and the girls were thrilled to receive some of his expertise in an hours session. They will be playing in a tournament in the Basketball Arena on May 29 next.
