Goodbye to Sixth Class

2018


a fond farewellAs the summer holidays approach, the time comes to say a fond farewell to our sixth class students, most of whom have been with us for the last eight years.



Last night, friends and family were invited to an end of year Mass in St Paul's Church to celebrate their lives thus far and to wish them well as they move on to secondary school and new adventures. Many of the sixth class pupils took part in the Mass and the music was supplied by the school choir. Afterwards everyone returned to the school for refreshments. As an extra special treat, Mrs Garvey also arranged for an ice cream van to visit the school. The evening ended with everyone enjoying ice cream outside on a wonderful summer day. 


farewell and good luck b


This morning a very excited bunch arrived in school ready for their last day. After having lunch in town, it came time to say their goodbyes. The children are moving to pastures new and we wish them great success in everything they do.

LEGO WeDo

 

Mrs Garvey recently aquired some new equipment called LEGO WeDo. She needed some students to try it out and she didn't have to look far. The boys and girls in Mr Beehan's Sixth Class were happy to take on the challenge. LEGO WeDo is a robotics hardware and software platform specifically designed for primary school children. This was a terrific team building exercise and proved a big hit with the students!

Fun on an Obstacle Course


Our sixth class students were very busy this morning creating an obstacle course on the grass in front of the school and in the upper playground. Each station was manned and an invitation was sent to the junior infant classes. The junior infant boys and girls tried out each station with the help and supervision of the older students. As you can see from the photos below, they all had a wonderful time!
