Out and about with Jean’s 1st Class

Budding archaeologists from first class set off for Loughshinny in May to be close to the Roman settlement site discovered in nearby Drumanagh in recent years.  Peter O’Neill, poet and author, and father of Rebecca in first class,  worked with me to introduce the children to some of the ways of the Romans in the first century.   This project work included learning about the origins of the Roman Empire, schooldays, toys, games, food, clothes, roman numerals, roman pottery and even a little latin.   After a fortnight of classroom learning the children took part in a treasure hunt on Loughshinny beach, marched like legionnaires and some even attempted to play knucklebones (nowadays called Jacks).  The trip to Loughshinny included a visit to the boathouse.  Here, the children discovered an amazing monster made from recycled GAA footballs. Finally we headed back to Ardgillan playground for lots more fun!

Our school tour to Rathbeggan Lakes in June was great fun as we teamed up with Lauren’s and Sylvia’s classes for a action-packed fun-filled day.  A million thanks to all the parents who came along to help.

Finally, I would like to wish my class all the very best in second class!  You are truly wonderful and I will miss you!

Message from Tomás

Hello to all children, staff and parents,

Imagine it’s the end of June and we’re all about to separate as we head off on our Summer holidays.  It has been another important year of growing and developing at our school.

Congratulations to all in the school community for the recent success with our Virtual Cycle. Imagine we raised over eight thousand euros! Thanks to the leaders who helped to organise it all.

Well done to everybody for all those other great things that happened during this past year – St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Seachtain na Gaeilge, Cor Fheile na Scoile, the Big Bear Planetarium, Friendship week and all the performances at assemblies and at the end of term. In fact, well done to all the children for their performances at our Graduation Ceremony when we all said goodbye to the 6th class of 2016. They were great!

Thank you to all the staff for your hard work throughout the year. Thanks also to parents for your support and, again, hard work throughout the year. Thank you to all the boys and girls at our school for being such fantastic people and for coming to our school every day and working as hard as they do!

I wish everybody a happy and fun-filled summer break. We will see you all on Wednesday 31st August. Slán,

Tomás
