Ball Skills Fun

We love being active and we know how important it is for us to develop good ball skills.  Senior Infants were excited to go to the hall today to learn these skills with our coach Denise.

Ms. Reid’s class also worked on their ball skills when they played tennis in the yard during their P.E. class.

We will tot up the laps of each class and the class with the most laps each week will receive the Winners Active Cup.  Children who really make an big effort and show determination and progress in their fitness will be awarded also.

As part of this initiative we are going to walk to school on April 26. You are all invited to join us at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel at 8:50 and we will all walk to school together. We ask that all children are accompanied by an adult on the day.

Multicultural Week Day 3

Another great day in our Multicultural Week!  Today, the children in First Class were treated to a food demonstration in the hall.  Mrs. Mary Burke showed us how to make traditional Irish brown bread.  Next, Irina, made Latvian potato cakes.  Finally, Marika made fried bread, a recipe from South Africa.  

The parents and children then had the opportunity to taste a variety of foods from across the world.  Many thanks to the parents who took the time to visit and for bringing in all the beautiful foods for us to taste and enjoy.   Another very successful event!
