Human Rights Day 10th December 2011

Every class in our school marked human rights day on 9th December 2011.  The Junior Classes explored the Rights of the Child through story, circle time, role play and art activities.  Our senior students read some inspirational poetry to the whole school over the intercom.  Joanne’s 2nd Class have been learning about the Rights of the Child over the last few weeks.  On Friday 9th, they chose one right that they thought was important and expressed it through art.  Dara’s 3rd Class worked together to create this beautiful and colourful masterpiece about Human Rights.

Gerard the guillemot

First class had a very exciting trip to the beach on Thursday 9th June.

We explored the rockpools around the harbour with the help of Johnny and John from the Irish Seal Sanctuary.

We had a very dramatic rescue of Gerard the guillemot who we found dangling upside down by fishing line off the pier.

Johnny and John used great ingenuity to rescue poor Gerard and they managed to remove him from  his awful hanging position.

Gerard seemed unaffected by his ordeal and was last seen paddling away happily.

Well done Johnny and John and thank you for our interesting day out of school!
