Junior Winter Educational Trip

The junior room’s winter educational trip took place on St. Mogue’s Day (January 31st). The boys and girls had a wonderful day, that began with a boat trip to St. Mogue’s Island where they got a guided tour the island and the church remains by Aidan Brady. They then visited the holy water font in St Aidan’s church Bawnboy, which is said to be part of the flagstone that carried St. Mogue across the lake to be baptised by St. Caillin. The children ended their trip with a visit to Ballyconnell library for storytelling.

STEM Project

We would like to sincerely thank our Parents Association who kindly donated €3000 for our STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) project in the school recently. This funding was used to install shelving, purchase storage containers and a huge array of STEM resources including: electricity kits; magnetism kits; model torso, skeleton, heart, ear, eye and lungs; Liquid measurement kit; model solar system; metal strip identification kits; stethoscopes; simple machines kits; rock, mineral and fossil collections; hovercraft construction kit; orienteering equipment; tangrams; classroom clock kits; pooters and magnifying glasses; and Numicon sets.

These resources will benefit all the children in the school, to aid ‘hands-on’ learning through self-discovery and guided-discovery. Keep an eye on our social media pages later this week for photos of this recent investment.
