Last Friday the whole school took part in Operation Transformation’s 10@10. We had great fun taking part in a short Zumba session in the yard.


In the run up to Christmas, we were joined once again by Maria, a very talented lady, for some flower arranging classes. The classes proved to be very popular and we have some very talented parents in our school. Well done to all the parents who attended the classes and showed such great talent. If you are interested in attending a flower arranging class, contact Yvonne in the school or Sr Rita in the Haven.

Christmas Cake Making

At the beginning of December, our parents got very creative and joined our Christmas baking class. We baked the cakes on week one and iced them the following week. We had great fun and made some fantastic cakes.

Visually Impaired Workshop with Child Vision

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.
