March 2021

As part of Seachtain na Gaeilge and Wellbeing we did an amazing dance called the Jerusalema dance. It was an amazing experience and the music video was filmed by Peter O'Callaghan. 



November / December 2020

During the months of November and December our school did lots of activities such as an Active Advent Calender which had 1 activity each day counting down to Christmas.We also did a Santa Dash which was 25 laps of our yard is = 5km, we wore santa hats and Christmas jumpers.On our last day in school before our Holidays we had music in the yard, everyone loved the dancing we did :). We used our amazing speakers donated kindly to us by our Parents Association.



October 2020

Today(the day of the Halloween Holidays) meant some bit of "normality" in our school where all the children could come into school in their costumes if they liked.

It was also a "Feel Good Friday" where chart music was pumped into the yard at all the staggered breaks and lunches. The children remained in their section of the yard but luckily we had one of the speakers which was donated to the school previously by a parent. We are so lucky to have such supportive parents and a wider community base to help us out.

On the day an announcement was made to all classes over the intercom for "Deadly Dancing" which meant every class "Dropped, Everything and Danced". We all had a "deadly" dance and a spooktacular day:) See some photos on the main website page and here too.
