Intercultural Evening in St. Comán's Wood

St. Comán's Wood Intercultural Festival took place on Thursday, 17th November. It was a wonderful evening, where we celebrated the wide range of cultures in our school. A huge thank you to the Parents' Association for organising the evening, as well as the many families who set up tables to represent their countries, showcasing food, clothing, music, art and literature from around the world. Thanks also to the many families who took the opportunity to visit our school and experience the cultural diversity of our school community.

 

Science Week in St. Comán's Wood

We are very thankful to the science teachers and students from the Convent of Mercy secondary school who came to our school and conducted a number of science experiments with our 5th and 6th class pupils as part of Science Week 2022. The children enjoyed the experiments and it was a fantastic learning experience for them. 

Thank you also to Ann Marie Healy, Senior Radiographer in Roscommon hospital, who came to speak with the 3rd and 4th classes about her work. The children found it very interesting and loved looking at real x-rays. 

The children in Ms. Maher's class learned about floating and sinking during Science Week.
