Grandparents Day

Today we had our first ever Grandparents Day in the school. Fr. Heinhold said mass for our Grandparents and our 2nd-4th class children. Then our Grandparents were invited into our school to see our classrooms and meet our teachers and staff. They were also treated to tea and cakes from our Parents’ Association. It was a great day enjoyed by all!

A huge thank you to our wonderful Parents’ Association, who spent a full day here with us preparing and catering for our Grandparents. We would be lost without them!

A special thank you to Fr. Heinhold for his co-operation in organising mass for us.

Finally, a huge thank you to Ms. O’Connor and Ms. O’Brien. They have worked so hard in preparation for today, and that hard work was rewarded with a fantastic day for all today!

We have added pictures in our Gallery and there are more to be added soon.

Cork Ladies Football visit

On Tuesday 15th February, Niamh Ni Chaoimh and Orla Finn from the Cork Ladies Football team, paid us a visit with the Brendan Martin Cup following their All-Ireland win in 2014. The boys and girl were dressed in red and showed support to the girls. We also celebrated the success of the White’s Cross underage teams who brought their recently won trophies to show us. A big thank you to Imelda and all the team at White’s Cross GAA Club for organising the visit.

Glashaboy Water Works

On Thursday 12th February, Mr. Scanlon’s 5th class, along with members of our Green School Committee travelled to the Glashaboy Water Works. They had a really enjoyable time and learned a lot about how the homes in our locality are supplied with their water. We would really like to thank Fergal Manley for organising this trip for us.

CIT / Tyndall visit

Today we were extremely lucky to be visited by CIT and the Tyndall Institute for a Science Workshop. Every child in the school took part in a Bubble workshop in our hall, and Rang1-6 went to the Community Hall for a Laser Workshop. We learned a lot about science and had great fun doing so!
