6th class went to Ballybane library to see Dublin-based author Brian Gallagher. He is a renowned children's author of stories like "Friend or Foe," "Taking Sides" and "Arrivals." The children loved chatting to him about his work, especially his novels based on 1916, one of which we read!
Ms. Curran's 6th class students have been busy since October working on the JEP project. All our hard work finally paid off and we had our hugely successful "pop-up" shop on 21st February. Our product "Choco Treats" was very popular and everyone had a brilliant day! Our sincerest thanks to all those who supported our venture, especially all the students and parents who bought our product on the day. Well done to the boys in Rang 6 for all their hard work and determination!

From September to December 2016, Ms. Myers’ 6th class were involved in a Sky Sports Mentoring project called Sky Sports Living for Sport. The objective of the project was for 6th class to mentor a younger class and teach them a new skill. The boys had the opportunity to work alongside Conor Galvin from Connacht Rugby and Kevin Conlan from Sky Sports over a 12 week period. They then used the skills they had learned to teach Ms. Cunningham’s 2nd Class touch rugby. Not only did this initiative bring great enjoyment to both classes but it also improved the children’s self-confidence, behaviour, self-esteem and social skills.

Our wonderful parent's committee have been hard at work again. They have been painting glass jars and making other fabulous crafts to sell at our Christmas market. Last year all money raised was used to buy valuable First Aid equipment. The committee gave a preview of their goods and there was a fun raffle. The staff and children greatly appreciate their efforts!
