We have a new library team in OLOL. This is a very important group in our school. We are one of the luckiest schools in Dublin to still have a school library. It is incredibly well stocked with books, fiction and non fiction.
As it is used so much we need a group to keep it organised.

The children explored the charactistics of clay and developed their understanding of textures by using various objects to make marks and patterns in their piece of clay.

Pupils from the I.C.B committee worked with Helen and Radio Maker Frank Phelan to plan and record two new radio shows for their new programme "Inchicore Eco-Squad" which is about all about the environment in Inchicore.

Pupils from Our Lady of Lourdes met Niamh from Bat Conservation Ireland to learn about Bats in the area, and they met with ecologist Dean to find out about wildlife and what an ecologist does.
