Grass Heads


This Green School project is so simple and it provides exciting results in about a week. G4 loved watching their grasshead sprout hair and keep growing. When it’s really long, they can trim it like a barber.

The children used plastic cups and planted grass seeds in compost  in order to grow their Grass Heads. They added some odd facial features to finish them off!

Viking Visit

Fourth Class were visited by a Viking who taught them all about how and when the Vikings first came to Ireland.

They learned about how the Vikings and the Irish natives lived back then, as well as getting to see and use some genuine Viking artefacts.

Some boys from third and fourth class went to the TLT to see Beauty And The Beast. In the show there was a character called Gaston and there was Belle and many more characters. It was amazing and we all enjoyed the show.

This week we played spikeball in PE. Spikeball is a type of volleyball. There are two teams with six on each team. The aim of the game is to get as many points as you can. We had lots of fun.

Newtown Blues, Louth SFC Champions 2017

Last Friday, 20th October, we were lucky enough to meet Andy McDonnell, captain of the Newtown Blues, winners of the Joe Ward Cup 2017. The boys had plenty of questions for Andy about GAA, his training and dedication to the his chosen sport. Hopefullly this will inspire our boys and we will see them return in years to come to share their stories of success.
