Halloween Party

Everyone had great fun at the Halloween party. The stations were such fun. We had art and craft, story sessions, a disco, made toffee apples, played snap apple and lots lots more.

Two Touch Rugby

Fifth and Sixth Class Classes recently took part in a Two Touch Rugby Programme with Brian from Waterford Sports Partnership. This is part of the 20/20 campaign – an initiative to increase female participation in sport. A number of the girls will soon take part in a Two Touch Rugby Blitz in Waterford City Rugby Club during European Week of Sport. Well done girls.

Cross Country Races

On Tuesday last, September 17th, the school’s cross country running team competed in the Waterford Primary Schools Cross Country races at the R.S.C.  We had children from 1st Class up to Sixth Class take part. The sun shone and the children ran their hearts out doing themselves and their school very proud. We had numerous medal winners and great fun on the day. It was fantastic to see all the children supporting each other and shouting each other on. A special mention has to go to the girls from Fifth and Sixth Class who were a great help with the younger children. Well done everyone!

Friendship Week

During the final week of September all pupils celebrated ‘Friendship Week’. Junior and Senior Infants paired up with the Fifth and Sixth Classes in a buddy system where throughout the week they engaged in shared reading, art activities etc. Everyone really enjoyed making their ‘Friendship Bracelets.’
First, Second and the Junior Language Class took part in a colouring competition designed by the pupils from Sixth Class. Third, Fourth and the Senior Language Class designed a Friendship Flag for the school and Fifth and Sixth Classes created Friendship Poems.
Some classes were also given a secret friend who they were especially nice to during this special week.
