Maeve's Senior Infants say goodbye to our butterflies

We have been fascinated to see the butterflies emerge from their cocoons this week. We have loved every second of their time with us, we watched them grow from tiny caterpillars to  enormous caterpillars and then we saw them go into their cocoons. We came back from the Bank Holiday weekend to find three of them hatched and a fourth one followed on Wednesday. Today it was time to release them. We will miss them so much!

Maeve's Senior Infants and Therese's 4th Class Reading Buddies

We have loved reading with our Reading Buddies from Fourth Class in the library all year. Today Therese read us a book and then we drew pictures of the characters and setting outside. Thanks for being the best buddies ever Fourth Class!

Active Flag Committee Meeting

The Active Flag Committee met today to discuss what new equipment is needed for the school. The new equipment will be puchased with the funds raised from our very sucessful marathon relay. The children brainstormed in groups to get ideas and then we narrowed it down to each groups top 3 choices based on the what the school needs. We will be pricing the choices in the coming weeks to make the final decision on what to buy. 

Active Committee Meeting - 16/03/18

On Friday 16th of March the elected members of our Active Committee gathered Donal's room for their monthly meeting. There was much on the agenda to be discussed so no time was wasted. The first order of business for the committee was to confirm an active slogan for the school. many great suggestions were made by the groups last week so Shauna put the three most popular ones to vote. Following the vote it was decided that "Don't sit if you want to be fit" would be the school's active slogan.

LETS Marathon Relay

The LETS Marathon Relay will be taking place next Wednesday 25th of April on out Astroturf. All the children, from Junior Infants to Sixth Class (and even some teachers and parents!), will be taking part and running a section of the relay. By the end of the day we will have ran a grand total of 42.2km as a team. Children are asked to donate €2 to take part in this event. The Active Flag Committee will be meeting to decide what new piece of PE equipment to buy with the funds raised. We are looking forward to seeing everyone participating and having fun on the day!
