Presentation Primary School Waterford

A great tradition of education in Waterford since 1798

Sixth Class

Miss Duke


We are so busy in Sixth Class!

We had 6 wonderful weeks with Bernie Woods doing Creative Mindfulness, an athletics taster session with Pat, zumba sessions with Zsusanna, drumming with Cathy from Rhythm and Shakes, swimming in Splashworld and a full day print workshop with Tunde & Junior Achievement with Aisling.

We’ve been learning about human rights, World War II, grammar as Gaeilge, fractions, decimals and percentages and lots more! We are busy preparing for our confirmation at the minute, which takes place on April 26th! We learned ‘Old Town Road’ as Gaeilge for our Seachtain na Gaeilge ceolchoirm and we even tried to teach our teacher the TikTok dance!

We are loving all the activities with our buddies, we had a ceilí with them recently and we led a wellbeing day for them, which had 4 mindful stations (reading, scavenger hunt, yoga & colouring).

As we prepare for our final term in primary school, we have lots to look forward to – our school musical ‘Willie Wonka Jnr’, a school tour to Tayto Park, sports days, fun days and lots more!

Well done to our 6th Class students who represented our school in the Cumann na mBunscol Br. Anselm Quiz in the Tower Hotel. The quiz was on all things GAA. The girls got to debut our beautiful new jerseys, sponsored by Fresh Today! Well done Mia, Bonnie, Erin, Keely, Abbie, Eve, Ella and Lily Grace.


We are really enjoying catching up with each other after the summer holidays and getting to know our new teacher, Miss Duke. We have been complimented on how responsible we are, we hope we can continue to be great role models for the younger classes this year by setting good examples!

We had a busy month, filled with lots of learning, laughter and a catchy song or two! We have been working with our buddies in Senior Infants, we enjoyed lots of activities together during Friendship Week – our favourite was designing an obstacle course for them and doing buddy games together.

We welcomed M&M theatrical productions to our school for a wonderful performance of Cinderella, we laughed, danced and sang our hearts out. What a wonderful show it was.

We cannot wait to see what this year brings! Stay tuned for our adventures!
