Crafty Creations in Art Club

The first group of fifth class pupils in Art Club are half way through their six weeks. They have been busy painting a winter scene and making some decorative snowflakes. Check out some of their work below…

Movie Night a Great Success

Thanks to all the parents and pupils who supported last Thursday’s movie night in aid of our school. We had a huge crowd of junior pupils for the first film at 5.15, and another great crew of senior pupils for the second film at 7.15.

Our raffles on the night, with hampers donated by Ms Hoey and a parent, were well-supported as well. In total, we raised €1950 which will go to support our sports teams and extracurricular activities, particularly buses to games etc.

Many thanks to all the staff, led by Ms Brady, who gave up their time to organise the event in advance and supervise on the night. They were joined by our ushers from 6th class who did great work along with some impromptu cleaners from our senior classes.

2nd class clay builders

Over the last 2 weeks we’ve had great fun learning the different techniques of shaping, cutting and sticking clay together. Painting our ladybirds was the next step,  after the clay had dried. Finally we glossed them which helped brighten up the colours and bring our ladybirds to life.
