Waste Workshop for 3rd class

The pupils in Ms.Hayes 3rd class  travelled to the Rediscovery Centre to participate in a Waste workshop, organised by WEEE Ireland. The girls investigated what waste is, how much we produce and how waste is managed. The workshop examined the issue of electronic waste and communicated best practice. Students were encouraged to explore ideas on waste reduction, reuse and recycling, through discussion and interactive activities. The workshop featured a range of hands-on activities promoting reusing and recycling waste materials.

Halloween bake sale & costumes

Our last day of school before midterm break was full of fang-tastic and spook-tacular costumes! All of the classes dressed up and visited the 6th class annual bake-sale. The bake-sale was a huge success and the girls put in great efforts baking and preparing in the days leading up to the event. All money raised will be donated to St.Francis Hospice, Raheny.

Our green team plant lots of trees!

The girls on our Green Team had a busy morning on Tuesday November 7th as they helped plant 50 small trees in our school garden! A group of volunteers from Experian, a local community who kindly donated the trees, visited the school and worked with the committee members to plant the trees. Noel, our caretaker, was also there to lend a helping hand. Everyone did a great job and we look forward to seeing the trees grow over the years to come.

Our Student Council was set up in October 2016. Our first committee did a great job. Here are just some of the tasks the girls completed:

November 2016: The girls had the task of designing our new school sign. We think it looks great!

December 2016: The committee organised a whole school competition during the month of December to encourage classes to keep their rooms clean. Irene and Jackie, our cleaners, monitored classes and used a large chart (made by the Council and displayed in the corridor) to chart progress. WELL DONE to Ms. Concannon's 2nd class who won the competition and were presented with homework passes by Irene and Jackie.

January 2017: The Student Council are now working on developing the Learning Section on our school website, adding new links to educational websites in each of the subject areas.

Feb/March 2017: The girls are helping to design our new computer room! Furniture, flooring, paint, equipment are among the items the committee will help decide. Also, the team are helping to review our ICT and Acceptable Use Policy, due to be ratified at the next BOM meeting.

 We look forward to what the school year 2017/18 holds for our new committee!
