Maths Week is going well.
We were delighted to welcome Kate Heelan (past pupil), Meave McCarty, Caroline Hickey and Niamh Holland to school. They are part of the fantastic Junior Ladies football team who won another All Ireland for Limerick. Thanks to them for coming to visit with the cup!!
Literacy stations taking place in the Juniors and Seniors room today…Hugely beneficial as tasks are differentiated to meet the needs of every child and the children have the opportunity to work as part of a small group and independently also.
We were all busy doing lovely art on a wet Friday.
3rd & 4th class wrote about the visit from Sean Finn and the Liam McCarthy Cup!!
We had a fantastic morning welcoming the Liam McCarthy Cup. A special thanks to Sean Finn for coming with the cup. Thanks to all the parents who joined us in the celebration.

Engineers week has started with a bang.. 5th & 6th had to design a bridge, then they made waste paper baskets.
