It was such a fantastic day celebrating our Open Day last Friday. The boys and girls did super in their performances and An Taoiseach was very impressed with our school and all the children in it. A huge thank you to all our families for your support and help to make this a very special day for the school!
The department of Education made a special video celebrating our new grounds, check it out!
Willow class are very proud of their weather station. We have lots of weather instruments and a chalk board to record our observations on it. It's the perfect time of year to see what temperature it is, how much humidity there is and what direction the wind is blowing from.
We are loving our outdoor areas, we used our outdoor bean bags yesterday at our storytime area. Our student council helped raise funds for these on our last movie night. They're so comfy and squishy!
We had so much fun on our school tour!

We are so excited to see our Geodome being constructed yesterday. Our student council worked hard to fundraise for it and it'll soon be available for the boys and girls in the school to use all year round!
We've been busy bees in Willow class this term growing lots of herbs and plants in our classroom. Last week, it was finally time to transfer our planting pots to our raised beds. We planted parsley, pumpkin seeds and strawberries. We're so excited to nurture our plants and watch them grow!
