SEAI – Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland – Science Week

This week we had the opportunity to meet Fergal from Life Time Labs. Fergal spoke to us about how we can save energy at home and at school. We learned about fossil fuels and the effects of climate change on our world. We even got the chance to practice some experiments and play a life size energy board game!


Meg Foley had this to say about her experience –


“Today we had a worker from the Lifetime lab come to our school. We had a talk about how you can save electricity .There are a lots of different ways, like turning off the lights when you leave the room, hanging the washing on the line and turning off your TV box .We also did cool experiments. We created energy by using 3 lemons with copper and zinc stuck into them. We also played a fun board game. I was on team blue with Aisling ,Aoife, Kate, Shane,Lucy and Sean.  The experience was great fun I would love to do it again”.

Cork Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals


Congratulations to Kate and Niamh who raised 200 euro for the CSPCA. The girls organised a raffle and sold tickets to raise the money. They provided prizes for the winners, which they bought out of their own pocket money.

In a season of giving, I think these girls led by example and I’m sure they made lots of friends at the CSPCA. We are all super proud on the girls!

5th Class Assembly

Check out our recent assembly. We performed for staff and students throughout the afternoon on Friday. Dance, Music, History and Gaeilge were all tied together in a twenty minute performance. Be sure to check out the snapshots and videos below.

What a talented bunch we are!😎










Be sure to check out our WWI projects which we have been working on throughout January.

We worked in groups and individually to create our projects which covered many aspects of the The Great War. From countries involvement to life in the trenches to weapon development, you name it, we covered it😀 Groups even created PowerPoint presentations which we presented to the class.

Huge thanks to Aisling for sharing her family connection to WWI with the class and the school.
