One of the suggestions that came from the Student Council was to have more plants and flowers around the school. So we decided to get our green fingers to work and start planting. Mrs Heffernan brought in some lovely colouful window boxes and asked Pshemeck, our hardworking caretaker, to cover the window sills with artificial grass. Then the student council started planting some lovely summer flowers. It will be their job to water them every day and look after them. Take a look at them below, don't they look so colouful and really brighten the place up!
Cillian and Robyn are doing a great job looking after our window boxes.
Next Pshemeck hung some lovely blooming hanging baskets at the front of the senior infant building. They really do add a splash of colour to the school.
We have some fabulous new hall noticeboards on display for the last term of the year. This term it was Rooms 12, 5, 8 and 4 turn to showcase their artistic talents. Each class created fantastic work, well done everyone!
Ms Ní Mhaonaigh's Class
The children from Room 12 have been exploring the jungle theme through Aistear this month so they decided to create a fabulous jungle display after reading the story Rumble in the Jungle byGiles Andrae and David Wojtowycz.
Ms O Regan's Class
Ms O Regan's senior infants were exploring the medium of watercolour paints and created these colourful rainbows. It tied in with their SPHE lesson on friendship and carried the message "Always try to be a rainbow in someone else's cloud".
Ms McNamee's Class It was Ms McNamee's turn this term to display artwork in the hall. They created these fabulous sun and moon pictures to link in with their topic work in S.E.S.E. They used warm and cool colours in oil pastels and paint. They are very eye catching!
Ms O Donnell's Class
Ms O Donnell's second class children designed some terrific turtles. They drew them out with pencil first and then painted them. Each one is unique.
