Super Reporters!


In the short few weeks since starting school, Junior Infants have developed into super reporters! This week , their task was to bring something from home that begins with the letter “s”. They really stepped up to the task and enjoyed reporting on objects ranging from Spongebob and a  sliotar, to Santa and a s-s-snakes and ladders game and many others in between. Well done to all for their imaginative contributions, Junior Reporters

A lovely day for Lemonade!



Senior Infants have been busy learning how to make their own butter and lemonade this week with very tasty results. We definitely have some budding Masterchef contestants in the making!

Science Week!


Fifth Class joined in with all the fun of Science Week by demonstrating their ‘explosive’ experiments. Science Week!

Time for a sleepover!


In Junior Infants we love to play and make new friends. The latest addition to our play area is our “bedroom”! It didn’t take long for some of the cailini  to plan a mini sleepover !Sleepover!

Oh, what booootiful costumes!

Fós ag fás!



2nd class have been investigating how much they have grown since they were babies by measuring one another. It was a fun activity which required precision and co-operation.
