Second Class

We have been very busy in second class the past few weeks. We have been preparing for the Christmas show as well as our visit to the airport for carol singing. We visited Pairc Uí Chaoimh for the Sciath na Scol final. We have been learning about fractions in maths and winter as gaeilge. We also used LEGO bricks to do experiments for Science Week 2023.

STEAM Engineering-in-a-Box

Last week the pupils in sixth class paid a visit to Gilead Sciences. This was a lovely way to celebrate completing the STEAM Engineering-in-a-Box programme which the children took part in this year. EIAB was a fun, engaging, ten week programme which guided the engineer, teacher and children collaboratively through a variety of challenges faced by humans throughout the history of mankind. We would like to thank Gilead for giving us the opportunity to take part in EIAB!

Sixth Class

In June we visited UCC. We got the bus up to Cork City and we were given a tour of the campus. We saw the Boole Library and the observatory. We also visited the church on campus.

We visited Ballyhass lakes in Coachford on our school tour. We did a nature walk, a netted obstacle course, a team building course and our favourite, the water inflatables.

We are now busy preparing for our graduation which is on Tuesday 27th June.

Cork County Final

Congratulations to our girls who played in the Cork County Final of the FAI 5s Primary Competition. The girls won their group and also their semi and did Walterstown National School proud. Well done everyone!
