Friends for LifeMarch 16th, 2018
5th Class have just finished their Friends for Life programme. This programme focused on difficult situations that we encounter in our lives and on how to deal with them best. Instead of ignoring a difficult situation and allowing it to get even harder for us, we looked at ways that we could take the situation and turn it into one which we can manage better. We learned all about emotions, relaxation exercises, looking at different options and seeking support from people close to us. We now feel a lot more confident and know that there is no problem too big that we can’t solve. Thanks to Ms.McGuane who helped Mr Quinn to deliver the programme. We really enjoyed the lessons!

Grandparents Day 2018February 1st, 2018
We were delighted to welcome so many grandparents and other family members and friends to our Grandparents Day service earlier today. We had such a large crowd that we had people in every empty space in the hall. Every class told a short story, a poem or sang a song for their grandparents. It was such a lovely morning. We were delighted to get the chance to tell our grannies and grandads how special they are to us in our lives. They are famous now that their photo is up on the internet!! Check out our gallery to see more photos from the day in our Grandparents Day Gallery
5th Class Junior AchievementJanuary 18th, 2018
5th class were delighted to welcome Jennifer and Tobi from local company GECAS for five weeks to our classroom. They delivered the Junior Achievement programme called ‘More than Money’ which taught us all about banking, setting up businesses and making smart decisions as consumers. We learned an awful a lot and feel we are ready now to go into the real world and skip secondary school!! Dragons Dens…watch out!!
