On 21st September 2020, the Donard-Glen footballers called to the school with the cup. It was great to see some past pupils and even one Daddy from the team. Well done guys and thanks for your time!
We said goodbye to the sixth class 2019/20. Sadly, given the circumstances, they couldn’t celebrate it with the rest of the school. Thank you to Helen for outsorcing the personalised hoodies and to all of their parents for making it possible for the 4 boys to meet during lockdown. Good luck in secondary school!
Our under-12 chess team and under-8 draughts team represented Westside Community Games in St. Kevin’s Community College in Dunlavin. The droughts team received silver medals, while the chess team received bronze.
The chess game in particular was very close with 2 wins and 3 losses. Well done to everyone involved!!
On 25th February 2020, we all enjoyed eating lots of delicious pancakes. We had various toppings including chocolate sauce, lemon, sugar and chocolate buttons.
Here are some examples of our Christmas crafts from the Junior and Senior rooms.
Ms. Case returned to plant out our lettuces, strawberry plants and spring onions.
We learned about the benefit of compost to plants. Ms. Case demonstrated this by comparing 2 lettuce plants, which were planted at the same time, where only one had had banana skins, eggshells and teabags mixed through the soil. Can you guess which one in the top left picture?
The children recently had the opportunity to explore the medium of clay. They really enjoyed sculpting their little creations.
Here some of our finished products.
The children enjoyed their drama (in-house) performances of ‘North Pole’s Got Talent’ and ‘The Ugly Step Sisters’ by the Senior Room. While the Junior Room enchanted us with their action poem ‘Christmas is coming’.
