Our Junior Infants and Senior Infants and some of our Stars had a special visitor today!
Lots of us had fun in the snow last week!
Oisín’s 5th Class performed their play in Kildare Library last week and our very talented 2nd Classes and Jonathan’s First Class were carol-singing in the Bank. They did a wonderful job out and about in the community representing our school!
5th class were delighted to perform their fantastic version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ in Kildare Library on Wednesday, December 13th. Well done to all involved!!
We had a fantastic morning welcoming some of our grandparents to our school! We showed them around our classrooms, asked them lots of questions and sang some songs for them. We put our artwork up in the halla for them to see as well. We hope the grandparents enjoyed it as much as we did!
Gary’s 2nd class learned this fantastic song ‘Tóg mo Lámh’ before the summer break. Eoghan McDermott on 2fm spotted it on Twitter and gave the class a brilliant shout-out on his show. Not only did he retweet the video, the band who sing the song, ‘Picture This’, did too!!
Take a look at the live performance by the class!
We are delighted to announce that we have our very first set of jerseys. We are all so thankful to the people at Kildare Town Credit Union. Their sponsorhip of €1,000 was so generous. Pictured below are children from 2nd Class with Amanda from the Credit Union who presented us with the jerseys today. The jerseys are so stylish and modern. The children are looking forward to representing our school with pride in all sports for years to come wearing the new kit.
Kippure Adventure Centre
3rd and 4th Class had a very exciting day in Kippure Adventure Centre, Blessington, County Wicklow. Abseiling, Rock Climbing, High-Beam Walking, Rope Walking and the dreaded Leap of Faith were the order for the day.
The students had to put their composure, strength and balancing attributes to the test, while sidelining any uneasiness they had toward heights. We had a fabulous day out, and both classes can be very proud of their achievements, with many conquering their fears!! Well done 3rd and 4th Class.
Thanks to all who came to take part in the multi-cultural evening in school today. We had an amazing array of food from lots of different countries and it was great to see so many people enjoying it.
4th class were busy making healthy salads using the leaves they have planted in our geodome. Judith showed them how to make a healthy dressing to go on the salad, perfect for the beautiful weather we have at the moment!
Our 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes were lucky enough to take part in the Imagino Library Sculpture Project this year. They made beautiful ceramic models inspired by characters from their favourite books with Ania, which are currently being displayed in Kildare Town Library. They will eventually be displayed in our own school library. Take a look at all of the fantastic work!
