Santa Goes to the Caribbean
Well done to Ms Glynn and children from 4th, 5th and 6th classes who attend Speech and Drama class as an after school activity. They staged a fantastic performance of 'Santa Goes to the Caribbean' for Christmas.
Some Christmas Cheer!
Have a look at this brilliant rap composed by some of our 5th class pupils.
Fantastic DNA in a box
Today our 6th class took part in a workshop called 'Fantastic DNA in a box' from the Cell Explorers Team of SFI. This wonderful, hands-on workshop provided the opportunity for the students to take part in a DNA extraction experiment and behave like a scientist. They were guided through the experiment by their class teachers and by a scientist from NUI Galway who joined the classes remotely. The workshop was thoroughly enjoyed by the students. Thank you to Ms Mannion who coordinated the DNA workshop.
Parents! Do you know that the Primary Curriculum is changing?
