We had a blast during our school tour to Let’s Go camp in Kilcullen. Here are some photos of us!

We were really lucky to be visited by Sarah from the Road Safety Authority a few weeks ago. We learned a lot about the safe cross code and safe cycling.

Christine’s Senior Infants class have been taking lots of activity breaks between their work. They are really enjoying getting out of their seats, stretching and getting their hearts beating a little faster between all the hard work they have been doing!!

Jonathan’s First and Second Class have been reading, discussing and debating the importance of keeping fit and having fun – they decided to put this into practice!

Our new Soft Play Equipment

Our new soft play equipment gets lots of use every day from Junior and Senior Stars and visitors. The equipment offers endless possibilities for balance, jumping, obstacle courses, throwing and bouncing. We are lucky to have a big space where we can leave everything out and available to be arranged in different ways by the children. Both classes have at least one session each day for sensory circuits which involve a lot of active play and exercise.
