On Tuesday the 4th of October we celebrated and raised our sixth green flag. The sixth green flag is awarded for Global Citizenship, litter and waste. Well done to all the boys and girls.
During the past fortnight, 5th and 6th class were learning about the work of environmentalists and how they are helping to make the world a better place.
This week we all wrote a poem about the environment with a focus on trying to do our best for the fragile world we live in.
We hope you enjoy them!

Thanks to Brian, Shane and Michaela for our first GAA training session this year.
As part of our Blue Star Programme, we took part in some special events today, organised by European Movement Ireland to mark Europe Day on 9th May. We completed our last Kahoot quiz on Institutions of the EU, then watched a live event with Minister Thomas Byrne and An Taoiseach Michéal Martin, brought home some EU resources and finally had an “air handshake” for Europe.
We were amazed by the fantastic ideas our pupils came up with on how to reuse a milk carton. So many different designs and lots of work went into each creation. Hope all who took part enjoyed their treat.
We celebrated St Patrick’s Day with our Lá Glas today. We had some poems, live traditional music and Irish dancing outside in the sun and finished our St Patrick’s Day artwork in class.
Everyone was looking very festive today in their Christmas jumpers. We raised over €500 for The Jack & Jill Foundation and this donation was made in memory of Cian McNamara. Thanks for all your generous donations for this worthy cause.
