Last week, the boys from sixth class went down to the hall to do some traditional Irish singing with Gerry and Gilly Cullen. We learned the songs “The Rattlin Bog” and “Bedlam Boys”. It was lots of fun! By David and Shayne, R11.
R6 had a bicycle safety workshop with Sorcha Brophy from Green Schools’ Ireland.
They learned how to carry out a maintenance check on their bikes and how to fit a helmet correctly.
They also got to take part in the egg test, where an egg is thrown from different heights to show the importance of wearing a helmet at all times when on your bike! The egg was damaged even at the lowest height. Your head is more precious than an egg but just as delicate!
