Global Citizenship and the Marine Environment Action Day

The theme for our Action Day was marine life. All of the children in Walterstown NS dressed up to celebrate this theme. Sea creatures, pirates, fish, deep sea divers and whales were just some of the costumes which could be seen around the school.

3rd to 6th class enjoyed a trip to the beach and the younger classes were busy doing arts and crafts based on the ocean.

We would like to give a special thanks to the PA who organised an ice cream van for the children on this day!

Fire Safety with Cobh Fire Station

David and Paul from Cobh Fire Brigade visited Walterstown NS last Thursday. They gave a very informative fire safety presentation in the halla, before allowing each class the opportunity to explore their fire truck.

The children really enjoyed sitting in the fire truck and learning about all the different equipment and fire safety clothing fire-fighters use.

A big thanks to David and Paul for taking the time to visit our school and providing us with the skills and knowledge to remain safe in any fire emergency!

Cobh GAA Partnership/Coaching

Diarmuid Kearney has been doing fantastic work with Junior Infants – Rang 2 this academic year!

The children built up their strength, coordination and fundamental movement skills before Christmas through Gaelic football. For the last few weeks, Diarmuid has focussed on teaching hurling/camogie skills.

Cobh GAA’s School Coaching Program in Walterstown NS has been a great success!

A huge thanks to Diarmuid for sharing his knowledge and skill with us in the school to date.
