Our fantastic 1916 Easter Rising display is on view in the main lobby of the Civic Offices, Dublin City Council on Wood Quay. Take a stroll around the various class projects from the G.P.O. to Joseph Mary Plunkett, St. James’s Church & chalice, Grace Gifford, Kilmainham Jail, Eamon Ceannt, Sean Heuston, childhood toys to our very own proclamation 100 years on.
5th Class students were very lucky to attend a Visually Impaired Workshop run by Child Vision on Wednesday 27th January 2016 at the Ark Theatre, Temple Bar.
All students were fully engaged in activities like learning to write their names in Braille, reading and writing wearing altered glasses, completing puzzles with blindfolds and walking blindfolded with assistance/walking sticks.
All activities were designed to show how things we take for granted can be for visually impaired people. If you get a chance, ask some of 5th class about their experiences of the activities you can see in the pictures.
A stop motion video made with the help of some of the 3rd and 5th class students, to show how we can behave ‘fairly and safely’ on yard, following our school yard rules.
Our Christmas Newsletter 2015 was available to take home prior to the holidays. Here is a link to the newsletter if you were unfortunate not to pick one up at reception from school.
Thank you to Ms. O’Dwyer for all the hard work putting it together.
