Our Trip to the Botanics ‘Sculpture in Context’

Last year Miss baileys class and their parents went on a trip to the Botanical gardens.We saw some amazing and inspiring works of art! We went again this year and photos are on their way

Senior Infants kidstalk

Fanatstic support from parents who came every Tuesday for 4 weeks to help us have fun with reading and books. We went on a bear hunt, we found and tricked the gruffalo and we went whoosh! with the witch on her broom.

We read 'room on the broom'

Easter Egg Hunt!

Our Junior and Senior Infants had egg hunts where parents helped us to find

our eggs! It was really difficult to find the eggs matching our stickers, but we did great searching and had 5 eggs each to enjoy afterwards!

Easter Fun!

Our classes had great fun doing Easter art activities. We were thrilled to have loads of parents help us!

5th Class Trail!

Our 5th class also took part in the history trail on Friday, and were superb at it! We joined up with 5th Class ‘Scoil Chaoimhín’ and 1st year class in Larkin Community College. Eddie told us that there is a garden on top of the GPO and this is the only garden on O Connell street! Thanks Eddie for that information – none of the teachers knew this!

‘Across the Divide’ History Trail!

Our 6th Class joined up with 6th Class in Central Model School, Marlborough St. yesterday to take part in a history trail based on our book ‘Across the Divide’! We all met in Rutland Hall where we were put in to pairs. We were given the activity booklet and clip boards, and we then took to the streets! It was strange at first meeting and working with new people, but we got used to it and had a great time!

We walked down to O connell street and compared and contrasted the street and different buildings and monuments to as it was in 1913. We saw that the Imperial hotel is now Clerys department store! The Spire is now taking the place of Nelson’s Pillar! O Connell Street used to be called Sackville Street! But the GPO is the exact same! A lot of the class agreed that the older buildings in the city are the nicest!

We then walked up Sackville place, around by Liberty hall – which is completely different now! And ended our trail in Marlborough St School Hall for a drink and snack! We were blessed to have the sun with us, which made our walk even more fun! Here are photos of our super boys and girls being very busy!
