Top Attenders

November 22nd, 2017

As part of our attendance strategy, it is an important aim of the school to have children attend as frequently as possible. Every two months, any child who has full attendance for the previous two months will receive a small reward to recognise being fantastic attenders!! As you can see, we had many children who missed no day in September and October. We’re hoping more children can join them for November/December.

First and Second Class were invited to our local library on Wednesday 25th October for a Halloween- themed craft session.  The children created their own aliens using various materials. We really enjoyed making slimy zombies using borax, water and glue! A Big Thankyou to the local library in Shannon for this invitation.


Halloween Quiz 2018

October 26th, 2017

We had a fantastic turnout last night for our Halloween Quiz. 32 teams in total battled it out for what was a very enjoyable night. Many thanks to all our sponsors who donated so many raffle prizes on the night. Thanks to all the children in the school who did art over the last couple of weeks which made our hall SPOOKTACULAR looking.  Special thanks to all our staff who helped prepare for and organise the night. They were a particularly colourful bunch this year!! Congratulations to the McKey family who won the best dressed team and to the Marren-O’Callaghan family who won the table quiz.

Second Class School Tour at Seedsavers

June 12th, 2017

Second Class went to Seedsavers in East Clare last Thursday 8th of June. We got to make pizzas. First we rolled out the dough, then we spread the tomato sauce and finally we added our favourite toppings. We put it in an outside oven and it took less than two minutes to bake each pizza. Next, we went on a treasure hunt in groups around the organic Seed Gardens, heritage Orchards and Native Woodland Trails.  We had to smell some amazing herbs and flowers to find some clues. We enjoyed eating the treasure we found!! Pond dipping was great fun. We caught some amazing creatures including newts, pond skaters, tadpoles and a water boatman. We planted marigold seeds and got to bring them  home to look after and watch it grow. 



Fun Walk 2017

June 8th, 2017

On Friday, May 26th our entire school went for a mega walk all around Shannon. We had lovely weather for it and had great fun, even trekking up Tullyglass hill!! We were greeted with a welcome surprise when we saw members of the school’s Parents Association greeting us back with a cool refreshing drink each. Thanks to all parents who helped out on the day and to all our fantastic families who helped to raise over €4,000 for the school. Special thanks to all our Junior and Senior Infants who looked after the children in 5th and 6th classes…they wouldn’t have gotten up that hill without the help of our youngest pupils!!
