Everyone enjoyed fantastic fun last week in celebration Maths Week Ireland 2018, a nationwide event. The children from 1st-6th Class were treated to Lego Enginneering Workshops from Learnit. The workshops were delivered in a well-structured, professional manner and they were a wonderful educational opportunity for the children. All classes were also involved in our first ever series of maths fairs. Thank you to Ms Flanagan, Ms Galligan & Ms Donnellan for all of the planning, preparation & hard work that went into making these events such a success. They were based around puzzles, problem-solving & ‘thinking outside the box’ and the children enjoyed the challenges involved and awarded a 5-star rating to the events! 🙂
What a day for a marathon relay. No ice this year to hamper the runners or rain to dampen the excitement of the kids. The race was on, but this year a surface change and a move to the grass.
2hr 31 mins 17secs was the time to beat so the challenge was on. More children participated this year with some teachers and parents also taking part. It was the children that done the most of the leg work, completing 100’s of laps of the circuit to reach that 42km target.
After a long school day with a huge amount of leg work put in by the kids the challenge was done.
2hrs 31mins 50secs
So close to last years time but a super effort none the less. It’s all about the taking part that counts and the kids had a super day and could have ran an ultra marathon with all the energy and running speed that was on display.
Thanks to all the volunteers for organizing such a great day, parents that turned up to support, parents & others that supported by sponsoring the kids, Chalkbox for their event sponsorship, teachers that helped and most of all the kids for their high energy and super effort. This fundraiser provides great support to the school and directly benefits our kids in learning support and extra curricular activities.
Role on next year and keep up those daily miles.
Our first fundraising event for this year will take place on Friday 19th October.
Our Marathon Relay was a huge success last year with some off the funds raised supporting the Literacy Lift Off Programme which was boosted with seven new tablets.
Please support our fundraiser as every child gets a chance to take part and beat our time from last year.
Lets wish all the kids well as they run to complete the 26 mile relay course.

We had great fun at Newgrange Farm. Enjoy the pictures below!
Paddy Madden, from The Heritage in Schools Council, opened the minds of junior infants to the world of nature. On our nature walk we identified trees in our school and learned some interesting facts. We discovered that the leaves of the beech tree are asymmetrical, elderflower cordial can be made from the flower of the elder tree and that the wood of the hazel tree is very flexible. Enjoy the pictures below.
The beautiful summer weather and artist, Wayne Thiebaud, inspired the ice-cream artwork below. Enjoy!
