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.

1916 Commemorations

On Wednesday the 11th of November two members of the Irish army arrived at our school to present us with an Irish flag and our very own copy of the proclamation of the Irish Republic.  We learnt how to look after our flag and what the colours represent. We also had a very special visitor, John Stephenson, whose grandfather fought at the GPO in 1916. He told us all about the rising and about all the interesting places in our locality where fighting actually took place. We had a great day.
