Hacky days on yard

Lights, camera, action!
Pictured are the boys in Mr. Faherty's and Mr. Kealy's classes (4th) who sent letters to residents in nursing homes across Ireland last week. The letters were full of warm wishes, kindness and chat! Well done to these pupils for taking the time and effort on this important project and to Ms. Kennedy (4th Class Support Teacher) who coordinated it.
It’s beginning to look a lot like……
The entrance to our school early this morning, 1st December. Huge thanks to Karen and JJ who worked hard yesterday to have our school ready for the start of the Christmas season.
The hand of history on their shoulder
There's snow class like Ms. Stewart's!
Look at the amazing Snowmen the boys in Ms. Stewart's class created! They can be seen in the windows around the school and have got everyone into the festive spirit!
Ms. Maxwell's class looked at all the different options when it comes to eating. They made fruit salads and made sure to have the right food in their lunch boxes every day. On Friday, they had a treat of rice crispy buns. Ms. Lally and Ms. Corcoran (also pictured) were absent for the fruit part of the week but (surprise surprise!!) appeared for the rice crispy buns bit!
Remembering Bloody Sunday
Where in the world?
The boys in Ms Gallagher’s Senior infants have been working in their groups investigating different countries. The boys worked so well as a team and became experts on their countries. They then had a chance to teach the other boys what they learned!
"Wile about writing in Donegal"
Ms. Brogan's boys love writing and learning about the past. They decided to write to Ms. Brogan's Granny and her friend Kate in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. They received lovely letters in return with both ladies writing about their experiences and lives in the past. They also mentioned how they had stayed best friends through the years. This kind and thoughtful project is an example of the amazing pupils Ms. Brogan has in her class. Well done boys!
What's the story boys?
Well done to Finn in Ms. Stewart's class who had full attendance in the last school year!
Our remote class assembly for 1st and 2nd classes took place yesterday. It was great to see everyone while keeping safe in our classrooms. As well as informative updates and reminders from Ms. O'Neill and Ms. Lally, we also had performances from the four class groups. Well done to everyone involved in setting it up. Next week, Junior and Senior Infants will get to meet each other virtually.
Ms. Gallagher's class gave amazing reasons why they are happy along with their lovely hot air balloon art pieces!
Morning has broken...
Mr. Smyth snapped this gorgeous photo of dawn break over St. Pius early in the morning this week - could be a contender for photo of the year!
Ms. McWeeney's Mad Scientists!
The boys in Ms. McWeeney's Senior Infants were busy making raisins dance, creating rainbows, turning cream into butter, investigating how an oranges peel acts like a life jacket, testing which material would make the best parachute AND discovering if everyday items are magnetic or not. It clearly looked like a lot of fun!
"It's light Tim, but not as we know it"
Tim in Ms Dunne's class has created a wonderful lighthouse picture with a real working light for Science Week. Well done Tim!
