Caherconnell Fort

June 1st, 2022

The children in the senior room have been working with Ms Coyle on their interpretation of Caherconnell Fort for the past number of weeks. In doing this they explored working with clay, papier maché, paint, and felting. The final wonderful model will be displayed in the Caherconnell Fort visitor centre this summer. Well done all!

Thank you Miss O Donohoe

May 18th, 2022

We have been very lucky to have had Miss O Donohoe with us for the past 10 weeks on her final teaching placement. She has been an integral part of our school since early March teaching, singing, playing and helping out with many different school occasions. We have learnt so much from her and had a lot of fun along the way. We wish her the very best in her future career and know that she is going to be amazing

The weather has been perfect for gardening and the children have been out and about planting and weeding. We have planted beans, salads and lots of vegetables and are looking forward to a bumper harvest. Thanks to our resident gardening expert Ale for always taking care of our garden and teaching the children so much about growing their own food
