First Class Write-A-Book 2019

May 12th, 2019

What an experience the children had during the Write-A-Book process this year. They learned to plan a piece of work, draft it, edit it (more than once) , illustrate it and publish their own text. We sent our books off to be judged by another teacher in West Clare and we enjoyed viewing their entries for the competition too. We had three winners from our class chosen to receive a presentation from the Clare Education Centre in the Auburn Lodge on Tuesday 7th May ~ Chloe Mullan, Daithi Lynch and Ruby McCormack. Once we received our books back the whole class was presented with their certificates by Ms. Fitzgerald at Cruinniu last Friday. The children also had the fantastic opportunity to have an ‘Author’s Presentation’ to every class in the school. They got to discuss their books with children from other classes. They had a fantastic afternoon! Thank you to all the parents who helped the children through the process.

Active School Slogan

May 10th, 2019

We recently ran a competition to find our new Active Schools slogan. Children from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class came up with slogans and designed posters. The Active School Committee met this week to begin the very difficult task of choosing the winning slogan. It really was tough! All the entries were amazing and very catchy. The winning slogan was from Angel in 5th class with her cool and catchy phrase – Jump, Run and Have some Fun! Well done to all the children for their fantastic posters!


1st Class Getting Fit!!

May 10th, 2019

First Class have been making a super effort to improve their fitness levels. We have been running every day and have nearly reached our target of running to Wales!! The children love this time out of the classroom and we definitely have seen an improvement in everyone’s fitness levels across the board!! Even on wet days when we don’t get outside the children get to do exercises in the classroom. Let’s keep it going everyone!!!!
