Hop for the Hospice

Posted on September 29th, 2016 in Latest News,Ms O'Sullivan,Ms. Doran by Mrs. Doran

We had a wonderful ‘Hop for the Hospice’ on Thurs 15th September. The sun shone down on us and people came out in their droves to support Wexford Hospice Homecare.

Our afternoon began with a prayer of thanks to the Hospice Homecare team, for their dedication and compassion to the people of Wexford. We also remembered friends and family who are sick.

Next , Ms Shannon and Ms Griffin’s classes sang a beautiful song ‘Clouds’ . This song was written by teenager Zach Sobiech about his battle with cancer.  Mr King, Emily O’Reilly and Anoushka Nolan ably accompanied the classes on guitar.

Lily Moran released a balloon into the sky as a symbol of remembrance for all our loved ones who are sick. We really enjoyed tracking the balloon as it floated higher and higher  towards Curracloe and out of sight.

Each class then took turns to have a candlelit relay around the walking track and we finished off with lots of music and dancing on the Astroturf. And of course the afternoon wouldn’t have been complete without a sweet treat for everyone from the cake stand .

We’d like to extend our thanks to the organising committee, to the parents council members and volunteers who manned the tea, coffee and cake station, to Lisa for her artwork and to Seamus for once again bringing a school event to life with plenty of music.

The biggest thanks of all go to you the parents and our pupils for being so supportive of this cause.

We raised an amazing €1689.25

Green Love Poems

Posted on February 13th, 2013 in Green Flag,Ms. Doran by Mrs. Doran  Tagged

We wrote love poems for the environment. Here are two of them.

 

The Environment ~ by Shay

The grass is green, please keep it clean.

The trees are tall, don’t make them fall.

The water is clean, let’s keep it this way.

So look after the environment everyday.

 

The Environment ~ by Rachel

Recycle the rubbish, don’t throw it away.

Turn off the lights, during the day.

Save water whatever you do.

To make the environment a good place for you.

Spooky Monster

Posted on December 12th, 2012 in Ms. Doran by Mrs. Doran  Tagged

After finishing reading the story ” Spooky Monster” in our reader we made these pictures. We used a graded colour wash for the background. We printed the body, first we put blobs of paint on the page, then we folded our page in half and pressed/pulled the paint along the page. Finally we used oil pastels to add details to our monsters.

Squirrels

Posted on October 22nd, 2012 in Ms. Doran by Mrs. Doran  Tagged

We have been learning about  squirrels. We made squirrels using a template. Mrs. Doran wrote the instructions on the whiteboard……but she didn’t show us how to put our squirrel together. We had to figure that out for ourselves.

Did you know????

Squirrels live in a nest called a drey.

Red squirrels like to eat pine cones.

Grey squirrels like to eat acorns.

Squirrels do not hibernate. They sleep for long times during the day in winter. On sunny days they will come out of their drey for a quick snack. But sometimes they cannot remember where they hid their food!
