Science Week continues today with children from 2nd class teaching the other children in the school. They have made a volcano, are showing optical illusions, floating and sinking and forces experiments. The children really enjoy seeing science come to life and being taught by other children. Click on the link to discover more optical illusions. Thank you to Mrs Murray for all her hard work in organising all the activities for science week.

Presentation of Books in Memory of Roddy Day

A welcome assembly took place today as the friends and colleagues of the late Roddy Day presented books donated in his memory. Roddy was a teacher in the school until he retired in 2001. He was a loved and much respected teacher by the whole community. He had a passion for reading and his friends, family and colleagues thought that this donation would be a fitting memorial. As you can see from the pictures below, our library is going to be greatly enhanced.

Green School Action Day

Our Green school action day is taking place today. We hope to be awarded our 5th green flag for work on diversity. The school was visited by Catriona from Fingal who questioned the children on their knowledge of diversity and other green issues such as recycling, saving energy and transport.
Children from each year group showed off their projects which included observing stick insects, bird feeding, creating insect hotels and writing reports on planting.
Well done to Mrs Dixon for all her hard work in organising the projects.

Drop Everything and Dance

When the music come on, everyone in the school drops what they are doing and dance. It's a great way to improve our fitness in a fun way. Here are some photos of Senior Infants, they love dancing in the classroom.
