Card Games

October 17th, 2018


For Maths Week, second class enjoyed learning how to play the card game ‘Lives’ with assistance from Mr. Quinn and the 5th class pupils!! We learned  how many cards were in a deck and how many suits in a deck and learned the rules of the game. Pupils in 2nd were split into groups of four. 

We also learned to play a game called ‘High/Low’, working on probability. This game also helped us to compare numbers and discuss which numbers are greater than/less than or equal to the number on the card shown. The children are looking forward to playing more card games this week!!

Dear Parents/Guardians,


We hope you are well this week. Our news is as follows


  • Congratulations to our girls’ football team who represented the school at the Cumann na mBunscoil competition in Gurteen on Tuesday last. The girls played very well and showed terrific team spirit.  Unfortunately on this occasion the girls did not progress to the next stage of the competition but it was great to see their positive sporting attitude. Well done girls! Thank you to Mr. Tyrell and Ms Hehir who accompanied the girls to their competition.
