Busy, Busy, Busy!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Term 1 has seen a busy start to our school year!

3rd Class are currently enjoying their swimming lessons and are engaging in our Partner Reading Programme with the Transition Year Students of Milltown Presentation Secondary School!


 Lego, technology and group work, what better way to develop the minds of our children!


The contract for our school ‘All Weather Pitch’ has been finalised!


Anyone with an interest in helping finance the final stages of this fantastic development are asked to contact the school or any member of the development committee.

Look who popped in and showed off his basketball skills! Thanks to Kieran Donaghy for yet again showing us what a selfless personality he is!

Literacy Lift Off!

Mr O’Leary’s 2nd class are busy with Literacy Lift Off! This initiative which is also known as “Power-Hour” or “Guided Reading”, is an intensive programme of Reading and Writing, which gives the pupils lots of opportunities to read books at their own level of competency. It is implemented in blocks of 6/8weeks in the Junior and Middle classes in the school. Diverse activities are essential for extending literacy processing power. Hence, the pupils work in ‘stations’ to carry out a number of activities in reading and writing, under the guidance of their teachers.
