IITF visited our school today to teach some Taekwondo skills to some of our classes.

We really enjoyed the experience here in room 2. We had a very hard workout.We learned how to do a turning kick and a front snap kick. We were very tired by the end of our session.

We’d like to say a big thank you to Aislinn, Mark, Martin and Ruairí for coming in to teach the class. And best of luck to Mark when he heads to the World Taekwondo Championships in Argentina next month.

Have a look at some of the photos below.

Mental Health Awareness Day.

Posted on January 26th, 2018 in Latest News,Ms O'Sullivan by aosullivan

Mental Health Awareness Day.

Every day is a good day in the Mercy school, but today was a wonderful one !

An Amber Flag committee was established in the school this year and one of our goals was to hold a Mental Health Awareness Day.

This was a day filled with activities to promote positive mental health.

We learned that mental health is all about how we feel about ourselves. When mental health is good, we feel happy and content.

We all learned our Amber flag theme song ‘Reach for the Stars’ – a song about hope when we’re feeling down.

We practised some mindful awareness and went on a mindful walk and did mindful colouring.

We all wrote about something we are grateful for, ready to be displayed on our Gratitude Wall.

Infants – 2nd class made a Rainbow on the Astroturf.

We all planted bulbs at the front of the school.

The highlight of our day was when Matthew O’Hanlon, co captain of the Wexford Senior Hurling team came in to talk to us about wellbeing. Matthew told us about his experiences and challenges over the years and how he overcame disappointments and knock backs to finally captain our county’s hurling team . His message to us was to never give up and never ever to bottle up our feelings – always find someone to talk to.  Matthew also spoke to us about the importance of plenty of sleep,   a good diet, plenty of exercise and time out from tv , tablets, phones and games consoles.

All in all we had a marvellous day. We all went home feeling positive and happy. We now look forward to the next task that lies ahead in our quest for our Amber Flag.

Yesterday 5th and 6th Classes attended a cycle safety workshop given by Halfords. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learned about each part of the bicycle and how to keep safe on the road. We even had a competition to see who could burst a tyre, Aaron Long from 5th class won!

Senior Infants had a very exciting visit to the Wexford Library on Wednesday 4th October.

We met Emer Conlon, author of the very popular ‘ Vroomtown’ series. She read us a story and we had lots of time for questions afterwards. We were  thrilled when Emer presented us with a book for each Senior Infant class library.

Blackwater Open Farm June 2017

Lots of learning and laughter!

Posted on June 21st, 2017 in Latest News,Ms. Griffin by Ms. Griffin

We have been SUPER busy lately. We have had Active Week, The Enniscorthy Athletics Competition, A Football Blitz, A visit from The Women’s Rugby World Cup, A tug of war class, a dance class with Wilma, Gaelic with Jason, Rugby with Corey, Tennis with Ashley, an Athlectics workshop and Mercy’s Got Talent!

Jodie and Kacey took to the stage for Mercy’s Got Talent and did us proud.

Danny, Jodie, Alannah, Evan and Luke went to The Enniscorthy Athletics Competition and Ms. English said that she was very proud of them!

Evan gave the boys a ‘lace – tying lesson’ as some of them need to work really hard on learning how to tie their laces over the Summer!!

We used the new laptops to research projects for Geography and History.

We did shadow pictures and as many activities as we could outside because the weather has been really nice.

Dilara and Ruby K reached the Skipathon final during Active Week and Dilara managed to come 3rd place. She is the 3rd best skipper in the whole school!

Kacey, Róisín and Ruby M were presented with certificates for their outstanding handwriting!

The year isn’t over yet … stay tuned for more photographs!

Trocaire Poetry Competition 2017.

Posted on May 17th, 2017 in zz ~ Ms. McLoughlin by Martha Mcloughlin

Some of the girls from Ms Mc loughlin’s 6th class entered Trocaire’s annual poetry competition run in associated with Poetry Ireland.

The theme of this years competition was ‘Before the Storm’, exploring how people prepare for extreme weather events caused by climate change. Sinéad O Reilly’s poem ‘Foreboding’ was awarded Second Place, we are very proud of her. She will attend the awards ceremony next week in The National Library in Dublin.

Well done to all the girls who wrote fantastic poems for the competition. Here is Sinéad’s winning poem. Well done Sinéad!!!


The warning comes in,

It’s worse than they thought.

In a hurricane’s path,

All items are caught.

They think back two decades,

To Hurricane Mitch,

Destroying the fields,

And crops that were rich.

It swept through the land,

Its fingers stretched out,

All houses and trees

Were snatched down its mouth.

The hurricane’s hungry,

It wants to be fed,

It ploughs on, relentless,

Fills people with dread.

They try to build shelters,

Make ways to escape,

But some will not leave

For their history’s sake.

They pile up the sandbags,

And build up the walls,

They know that tomorrow

Some houses will fall.

They gather together,

And ponder their fate,

All they can do now

Is sit there and wait.

Sinéad O’Reilly

Wetlands study at Raven Wood.

Posted on May 9th, 2017 in Mr. King by Mr. King

On Tuesday the 2nd of May Mr King’s class visited the Raven forest in Curracloe. We met our guide John and he brought us to the pond to do some dipping and learn about the various forms of plant and animal life in the area. We learned lots of new information about the different habitats and food chains. We finished with a picnic on the beach. It was a really interesting day and one we will remember!

delighted to be able to fund this programme .

Upcoming events:
We’re really looking forward to our annual communion reception party on May

for the families of both communion classes – it’s a great chance for all the
boys and girls to see their friends before heading off for the afternoon.
There will be a professional photographer set up at the school to take
communion/family portraits with very reasonable print packages available to
order. Anyone who would be free to help out for a few hours on this day
