Friday the 13th of June was a very lucky day for the students and teachers in St Patrick’s JNS, Corduff. At lunch time we witnessed the hatching of our first little quail chick. He was slimy at first but soon turned into a beautiful ball of yellow fluff!
At 6:13 am on Saturday our second chick hatched and he was soon followed by another. Both of these were brown chicks with yellow stripes. Two more chicks of the same colour hatched later that morning along with two yellow chicks with brown stripes. The incubator was getting crowded with 7 little, jumpy chicks.
Sheila called in to move the squashed chicks into a brooder. The brooder was placed under a lamp to keep them warm. The chicks were given a bowl of water (with marbles in it so they can’t fall in) and some food. They were having great fun running around and jumping on top of each other.
We would like to thank Ms Mc Hugh for all her hard work in organising this wonderful experience for all the children in the school.

The children in 1st class had a busy day at Dublin Zoo for their tour. They were very lucky with the weather as it did not rain. Each group walked around all the different areas and got to observe their favourite animals including wolves, elephants, snow leopards and tigers.
A meeting will take place on Thursday 12th June at 9:15am in the Senior School for parents/guardians for 2nd class children who have enrolled children in St Patrick's Senior School for 3rd class in September 2014.
If you have any queries on this matter please do not hesitate to contact the senior school on 01-8216563.
