Makey Makey Fun in G2

We had great fun creating a human piano with a Makey Makey in class today.  Makey Makey is an invention kit which helps turn everyday objects such as metal coins, fruit and even people into a computer keyboard.  We can’t wait for the new kits to arrive so that we can start making our own inventions.

G3 Gymnasts

Well done to the boys in G3 and Ms. Dillane who have been working really hard in P.E. to improve their gymnastic skills.

The boys have worked individually and in groups to improve their balance, movement, flexibility and fitness!

Rio might come a bit too soon for the boys in G3 but if they keep improving we may have some future Olympians in our midst!IMG-20160209-WA0000 IMG-20160209-WA0001 IMG-20160209-WA0002 IMG-20160209-WA0003 IMG-20160209-WA0004 IMG-20160209-WA0005 IMG-20160209-WA0006

Our fifth classes recently visited the Lourdes Stadium to take part in some athletics training!! The boys had great fun trying out a number of different events. A big thank you to all the coaches from Boyne A.C. who put the lads through their paces.

Louth F.A.I 5-a-side Competition

Two teams from sixth class represented our school at the recent Louth F.A.I 5-a-side soccer blitz. Our teams, managed by Mr. O’Reilly, performed superbly.

Our red team topped their group with an unbeaten run while our green team were very unlucky to loose out on second place in their group by a single goal.

Our red team qualified for the final stages of the competition and finished in a very respectable third place overall!

 

Well done to all the boys who took part. They represented our school brilliantly and played each game in a spirit of sportsmanship and fairness!!

Release the Worms!

 

This morning, the boys from G1, G2 and G3 released the worms that have been living in our classrooms back into the garden.  We hope they enjoyed their stay in the Worm Hotels.

R6 Proclamation Day

As part of the Proclamation Day celebrations we constructed three of the buildings that were central to the 1916 Easter Rising. The G.P.O., City Hall and Liberty Hall. They were displayed in the library with all the other class projects.

These boys all took part in the ceremony. Tadhg and Enoch are part of the band who performed ‘Foggy Dew’, Ahmed, Conor and Franz were part of a short Irish drama.

They all did a fantastic job.
