On Friday, 17th May and Tuesday, 21st May, respectively, Mr Malone’s 6th class boys and Ms Forde’s 6th class girls, visited the Hugh Lane Gallery in town to take part in a city wide scheme called Zoom@the HughLaneGallery. The aim of the scheme is to encourage the creative potential of children through looking at artwork in the Gallery’s collection and the making of art during an artist-led workshop arising from what the children will have seen and discussed. Initially the project is being aimed at twenty-six primary schools in the Dublin city area. A representative from the gallery will visit the school and give a presentation to the class ahead of this visit.

Mr Malone brought his 6th class boys to Trinity College to see the Long Library, the Book of Kells and they also got the opportunity to speak to students attending college there and see what the dorms looked like. We might see some of our students in college there in the future as they all really seemed to enjoy the visit.
News from The Gardening Team
The New Gardening Team was formed in April 2019, to help Claire in the garden. As part of the project, compost bins have been put into 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes. Raw fruit and vegetables only will be put into the bins, and each day the Gardening Team will empty the classroom bins into the compost bin in the garden. A layer of paper will also be added, and we should see the compost forming over the coming weeks and months.
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!

The children will need to be in school at 8:15 on that day. They will be home at approximately 3:15.
