Standardised Testing

Testing for all pupils takes place during the month of May. Please ensure that children are well rested for the testing which will be ongoing in the junior school from the 8th May and begins in the senior school from Tuesday 14th May onwards. As we have been selected by the Department of Education & Skills to take part in further field research to improve standards in testing, our 2nd and 6th class pupils will be undertaking a second set of tests this year, good luck to all!!

Junior Infants – Ms. O’ Donovan

Ms. O’ Donovan’s Junior Infants planted Cress seeds in their class. The children learned all about what plants and seeds need to grow. Each child filled their own pot with compost and sprinkled some cress seeds on top. They also make sure to water their seeds every day. We will keep you updated on how our seeds grow…..

 

5 Days Later

After 5 days our seeds have grown and are ready for our Junior Infants to bring home. The children will mind their cress and water it every day – they may even taste it!
