Fighting Words Workshop

Today children from 3rd and 4th class traveled into the city to participate in the fighting words workshop. The children got the chance to write the beginning of a book as a collective class while an illustrator put their ideas into pictures. The children then finished the book by themselves. At the end of the workshop they  each got a printed version of the book. It was a very educational and fun trip which was enjoyed by all.


Recycling Centre

The children from 3rd & 4th class and the Green Schools Committee traveled to Ballymount recycling centre yesterday to take a tour of the facility. It was a very informative (and smelly) tour but the children really enjoyed it and learned a lot from their visit.

Cross Country

Children from 3rd – 5th class completed in the South Dublin Cross Country finals in Corkagh Park last Thursday. They completed with over 2000 children from 59 schools around South Dublin. It was a great day out and all the children ran really well in their races.


Children from all classes participated in the ‘Spooky Walk’ organised by the Parents Association. The children also enjoyed traditional Halloween games in their classrooms.
