Classes were delighted to attend a construction expo. held by Ms. Biesty’s 5th class. There were lots of imaginative constructions made entirely from recycled materials. The children fielded a range of questions about their individual items and their stories behind the constructions were very interesting. Well done to everyone involved.

The 4th class school tour took place on Wednesday June 19th with a trip to Causey Farm outside Navan. It was a great day filled with lots of fun and bog! Children had a tour of the farm, fun with painting and bubbles, a tractor trip and a wonderfully messy adventure in the bog. Check out the photos….
The school will close at 12 o’clock on Friday 28th June
Congratulations to all the boys and girls who were confirmed on Friday June 7th. There was great praise for everyone involved and the choir were fantastic.
Thanks to all those who helped prepare the hall for the Confirmation breakfast which proved very popular.
Rhona McCarton provided a very delicious chocolate biscuit cake.
On 5th of June 2013 we went to Tallaght Library for a SEAI workshop .
When we got there we went into a room with a lady called Sophie. There were lemons and little wires. We made a light from a lightbulb and the lemons . We played games and did more experiments it was really fun.
We danced and made rockets using vitamin c tablets. We watched a video and it showed what we do to create electricity and what is happening to the world with so much electricity from renewable (water) and non renewable (oil) sources.
We learned that we need to save energy rather than waste it.
We would like to go again because it was fun.
