A very special Santa visit…
The boys and girls from Lismullen NS had a very special Christmas visit today from the big man himself, Santa!!!
There was lots of excitement when the students got to the School this morning to see that Santa had set up a grotto in the playground to welcome all the boys and girls and have a socially distanced chat with the students in their pods. He also had a small gift of a selection box for each of the students to enjoy over Christmas.
Thank you Santa for coming to visit Lismullen NS and best of luck getting to all the boys and girls on Christmas Eve night, we hope the weather is good for you and the winds are strong!… READ MORE

Solstice Arts Centre’s New Era and Lismullen NS virtual workshop
On Friday 11th of December, Lismullen NS 4th class took part in a virtual workshop with artist Deirdre Rogers from Solstice Art Centre. Based on their current exhibition New Era – Exploring Climate Change, the children focused on the artworks of Martina O’Brien and her fascination with the effects of climate change from the coral reefs in the North East Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Ireland.
The children looked at Google Earth and discovered the distance between their school and the Porcupine Bank (over 450km), the reef explored by scientists on the research vessel the Celtic Explorer. They watched a short video of the ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) that was lowered on to the Bank.… READ MORE
