Teddy Bear Day is celebrated on 9th September every year. This year in Base Class we had a teddy bear picnic on Friday 30th September. The children loved the idea and had a great day. They brought their favourite teddy bear from home and had so much fun with all the class. There were lots of hugs, laughter and giggling going on in the class and children seemed to have a wonderful day at school.

This month we have been having loads of fun in senior infants learning all about school and home. We have been getting into role as teachers, principals, buliders building schools with our blocks and also stepping into the role of mam and dad in the home corner, minding the babies and cooking the food. We became artists with Ms. Mulvany in our art station and designed and painted pencils. We have also been working hard at completing jigsaw puzzles!

Fifth class have had a great first month back at school. We spent the first few days getting used to being one big class by playing ice breaker games. The boys and girls are enjoying dance classes with Kyra every week as you can see from the photo attached. We also started swimming last week and are enjoying that too. The class will go rock climbing this Friday and everyone is very excited for it. This month we studied The Romans, as well as Pompeii and Volcanoes. This week we will attempt to build our own volcanoes (Photos to follow) and we will conduct an experiment later in the week by creating a volcanic eruption.

Our Road Safety Awareness Beep Beep Walk is this morning for Junior Infants to 1st Classes. You are all welcome to join us. We leave school at 10am. Thanks in advance to our friends in An Garda Síochana who will accompany us. 🙂


We had a lovely walk this morning down to Inchicore with our Junior Infants, Senior Infants and 1st classes. Our local pre schools also joined us which was lovely. Garda Mark arrived on his bicycle and guided us across the road safely. The children wore their safety vests from the RSA and they know to wear them walking to school and elsewhere in the darker mornings and evenings.
