Competition winner casper didek

Way back in September fourth, fifth and sixth class entered Panini’s Official Premier League Adrenalyn XL 2020/2021 Trading Cards – Classroom Challenge Competition. The pupils had to design a winners trophy for the event of their choice. Ms Casey and Ms Nagle sent the entries off digitally with everyone hoping they had done enough to win the top prize- E1000 for the school, E50 for the pupil and a football shirt of their choice.

We got the wonderful news this morning that Casper Didek, in 6th class, had won the top prize in the Republic of Ireland. We are all extremely proud of this amazing achievement. His wonderful art trophy shows how talented Casper is. We suspect this is not the last prize Casper will win for his art work. He has a bright future ahead of him. There were big celebrations in school today. What a great start to November!!!

WELL DONE CASPER!!!!

Happy Halloween

Thanks to everyone for the huge effort that went into all the costumes and face paint today. We had lots of fun and games in school and also raised lots of money for a great cause, Pieta House. In total we raised a whopping E435 so far. Have a fantastic break. We look forward to seeing everyone back rested and refreshed in November.

Discover science and maths award

Our school has achieved the SFI Discover Science and Maths Award for the 2019/2020 academic year. We will receive the plaque of STEM shortly. Well done to all the students, staff and parents for their very hard work both in school and at home during the lockdown. The school provided evidence of children’s engagement with STEM in the following areas:

Science

Technology

Engineering

Maths

STEM Showcase

Here is some feedback on our Log of Evidence:

Well done – it was a pleasure to assess your submission for this Plaque award. Your LOG presented evidence clearly explained and illustrated of all the activities you list in the application. Your observations on the experiments show that the skills of Estimation, Prediction and Measuring are being developed. I was particularly impressed with your pupil led demonstrations on the relationship between nose and taste, the elephant toothpaste, climate change PP – all very interesting and designed by learners themselves. The work you did at home during the lockdown also shows great independence. You also managed a very worthwhile Showcase despite the closure. Congratulations on achieving your award – keep up the good work and maybe consider applying for the Badge of Excellence next year
