Thomas and Tom did an amazing project in Ms. Brogan's on Mesopotamia. It is an area near modern day Iraq that the first humans ever lived! Well done boys!

Stop the count!

While counting of votes continues in the USA, Mr. Finnegan and 4th Class decided to call in Ms. Lally to make the call on the best Lego structure. The boys displayed amazing designs and innovation. Pictured are a selection of the creations with more to follow next week. With such impressive work, the class is looking into using programmable Lego next week!

On the same day when a possible vaccine was announced, the boys in Mr. Dillon’s saw this lovely rainbow as a further sign of hope (at least from rain showers at lunchtime!).

Along with Cormac are two former 2nd row players in their own right, Mr. Smyth and Mr. Coyle.
