Maths Week

Maths week: Maths eyes - This year we are looking for you to use your maths eyes again and take photographs of Maths that you see in the world around you. Last year we received almost 200 emails with all different photographs with great taglines. The tagline accompanying the photograph should pose a Maths question or problem. Click HERE for more information from the Maths Eyes website. Try to avoid using the tag lines of how many or how much in the middle and senior classes. The tagline should be age appropriate. If possible please use a digital camera rather than a camera phone as the quality is important if entering some of the photographs into the national competition. When you have the photograph plus the tagline ready please email them to  - remember to add your child's name and class to the email.

Road Safety Week

This week is Irish Road Safety Week.  One of the key messages from the Road Safety Authority is "Be Safe, Be Seen".  Today, children in first and second classes received a high visibility vest.  Infants received their vests recently.  When out and about, especially at this time of year, we should all wear our high visibility clothing.

Nature Walk!

Children in Mrs. Dillon's second class availed of the recent good weather by going on a nature walk today.  Mrs. Farrell joined them and filled the children in on the different species of tree to be found in the school.  More photos to follow.
