Penalties vs Mr. Quinn

June 24th, 2019

Mr. Quinn needed to bring out his inner Alisson Becker as he faced down some real sharpshooters during the week. Every child took part in some fun target practice, some focusing on power, more on precision…and a few more just aiming for Mr. Quinn!! Great fun was had by all celebrating Active Schools Week!


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.
