Green Flag Energy Project and Science Week

The children had great fun this month exploring the zoo and the animals that live there. They made great homes for the zoo animals from lego, wrote riddles and made lovely animal collages.

Everyone enjoyed Science Week and had great fun with the experiments.

We continue to work on our Green Flag Energy Project. We calculated the electricity bill for the year and compared it to other years. We worked out how much that would be per person in our school –    €3000 ÷ 20 = 150 each.

We went on a field trip to look at energy saving buildings . We saw triple glaze windows and solar panels on St. Catherine’s N.S.


Take a look at our recent visit to the Rectory Garden. We planted garlic and onions. We also harvested lovely ripe tomatoes!

Halloween was fun! The children dressed up in great costumes and had lots of fun with games and treats!



The children had a lot of fun exploring our Aistear themes of Toys and Autumn. They set up their own toy shop, brought in toys for ‘Show and Tell’ and made lovely paint prints using toys. We also went on a nature walk and made leaf animals from the autumn leaves.

The children from the Senior classes attended the Diocesan Schools Service in St. Mary’s Cathedral , Limerick.             They enjoyed joining with the other schools for this occasion.

Just last week the whole school went on a trip to the Town Hall Theatre in Galway to watch the Baboró show Black Beauty. Everyone had a great day.

People Who Help Us Lego Project

Our Aistear topic of the month is People Who Help Us. In pairs we did a Lego project where we picked one of the people who help us and built something that they use or their place of work. We constructed schools, vet surgeries, hospitals, houses and bulldozers. A very successful project! Well done everyone :)


World Book Day

For World Book Day everyone brought in their favourite book from home. We had circle time where everyone shared a bit about their book.
