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.

G5’s Science Fair

G5 recently held a Science fair where parents, students and teachers were able to come to our classroom and see our science experiments. We had to choose a science experiment to carry out both at home and in school. We chose lots of different topics like  tornadoes, quicksand, volcanoes and floating eggs! We had a fantastic time. We hope you enjoy our photos of the day.
