Rugby World Cup Projects

The children in 5th and 6th were each given a country playing in the Rugby World Cup Finals to research for a Geography Project. The children really enjoyed supporting their second country during the finals. Of course the child with South Africa was delighted! The children also enjoyed presenting their projects to the children in 3rd and 4th.

We will celebrate Science Week with some very exciting activities this week!

Road Safety Certificates

The children in the Junior Room have been busy learning about the importance of Road Safety. The children were delighted to receive their Seatbelt Sheriff Certificates and their Hi Glo Silver Certificates.

Active Walkway Challenge

We had hoped to get through Britain before Brexit but we were so busy getting ready for Halloween we didn’t make it. Luckily there has been a Brexit extension so we won’t get stuck in Dover. We have walked, run and skipped another 158.1 Km on our Active Walkway and have crossed the Severn Bridge from Wales into England.

Happy Halloween

We would like to wish all our children a Happy Halloween as they head out “Trick or Treating” If you are stuck for a song here are the words to An Púca!

“Púca! Púca! Is mise an púca!
Púca! Púca! Aon-dó-trí!
Seo í an oíche, Oíche Shamhna
A théim ar cuairt chun do thí,
Chun do thí!”

“Púca! Púca! Ní tusa an púca!
Tusa Seáinín Beag Ó Laoi!
Seo í an oíche, Oíche Shamhna
A bhíonn tú ag súgradh aon, dó, trí,
Aon, dó, trí.”

“Púca! Púca! Is mise an púca!
Ní mise in aochor Seán Ó Laoi!
Féach ar m’fhiacla! Féach im ’shúile
Béarfaidh mé anocht ort, anocht a chroí,
Béarfaidh mé anocht ort, anocht a chroí,
Anocht a chroí!”

Have a great night and keep safe.

 

 

 

Halloween in the Junior Room

The children in Jnr. and Snr. Infants arrived to the school in their wonderful costumes ready for the Halloween Party. A huge thank you to Hayley (Archie, George, Harry and Jacob’s Mum) for the wonderfully gruesome Halloween buns.

Togher’s got Talent

As part of our Halloween celebrations we enjoyed Togher’s got Talent. This years competition involved a wide variety of acts that were hugely entertaining. Congratulations to all the children that performed their wonderful acts. Many thanks to Roger from the S.C.P. for judging the competition and for his kind words to all the performers.
