As you can see from the photo below, the girls were all successful and returned home with medals galore and three also receiving trophies. Well done to you all.

The Stage Awaits....

Keira Nooney from Mrs Walters'/Mrs Slevin's Sixth Class is treading the boards in the sold out pantomime, 'Jack and the Beanstalk', in Mullingar Arts Centre. Keira is playing the part of a slave child. She is taking part in a total of six shows. It's early days but she's loving it so far. Keira loves singing and dancing and playing the piano so this pantomime is right up her street. The first of many performances I'm sure. So as all good thespians say, 'Break a leg Keira'!

A Jungle Story

 

Anybody passing the office door on a Monday or a Friday for the past couple of weeks will have heard some very familiar and uplifting songs. Our Fifth Class students are taking part in a very exciting project in association with Mullingar Arts Centre. They will be performing 'The Jungle Book' next February in the Arts Centre and rehearsals are already in full swing. This will be a full scale musical and the children are working really hard to make it a success. We can't wait to see the fruits of their labour! A huge thank you to Mullingar Arts Centre for all their support and guidance.

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.


Go n-éirí an bóthar libh.

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!
