Well, Multicultural Week has come to an end and wow a success!! Every class put in a massive effort and took part in numerous events during the week.
Well done to all the girls from Junior Infants to 6th class, who graced the catwalk on Tuesday in their traditional costumes and colourful outfits, You can find a video of the fashion shows in our VIDEO section.
Each class represented their country and competed against each other in an obstacle course on Tuesday. A big thank you to Lana, Hannah R, Lauren, Ellen, Emily B, Shannon, Emma, Ellen C, Lucie and Rachel who are all members of the Active Schools Committee. These girls did an excellent job organising and setting up the obstacle course for the whole school.
Displays in the Hall:
On Wednesday and Thursday, our school hall was transformed into a temporary museum, displaying all the work each class had done while researching their assigned country. Some class made posters, some painted beautiful artworks inspired by an artist from their country. Other classes made traditional food from their country and others displayed traditional costumes. Each class visited the museum and had their passport stamped as they traveled around the world on an information fueled journey.
A BIG thank you to all the parents who visited us during Multicultural Week to give talks, look at the displays and lots more. We hope you enjoyed the whole experience just as much as we did.
We will be uploading many, many photographs to our Photo Gallery over the next little while, be sure to check them out!

We started off our week with an assembly for Multicultural Week. Multicultural week will be running from Monday to Thursday this week, with lots of exciting activities planned. Ms. Burke told us that we have children and parents from over 21 countries in our school. Wow! Ms. McGrath then showed us a lovely powerpoint and went through the countries of the different classes and the exciting schedule she had organised for the classes.

What will I be when I grow up?
This week in Ms. Mc Grath's class we are learning about People Who Help Us. Senior Infants have been chatting about all the different people who help us in our lives, like teachers, shopkeepers, nurses, doctors and hairdressers. The girls spoke about the different kinds of helpful jobs they would like to have when they grow up. Annarose would like to be a Postgirl. She would help people by delivering letters and parcels. Ashley would like to be a teacher when she grows up. She would help people to learn new things like the alphabet. Angelin would like to be an Ice-cream Girl and help people by selling them ice-cream in the summer. Sreya would like to be a doctor and help people by giving them medicine.
Look at their fantastic pictures and sentences in the pictures below.
Here's a question for you: What would you like to be when you grow up? Comment with your answer :)
Powering Kindness Week : What RAK (Random Act of Kindness)will you do this week?
This week is Powering Kindness Week across Ireland. Acts of kindness can happen anytime, anywhere so why not perform a good deed and brighten someone's day today! We believe strongly in spreading kindness here in our school and we hope to work hard to spread even more this week.
During computer class, some girls visited www.poweringkindness.ie to get some ideas for good deeds and we spread our kindness a little further by pledging our good deeds on behalf of a chosen charity.
4th class designed some word clouds onwww.tagxedo.com based on their idea of what kindness is. Have a look at our slideshow below.
Why not share your very own kindness deeds you have done or received in our comments below. Spread the kindness...
