Our baking lessons are going really well. We love learning how to bake new things every week. Last week we made pizza and this week we made Mary Berry’s Flapjacks with Mrs McLeod. They are a yummy healthy treat. If you want to try the flapjacks here’s what to do:

Melt 225g of margarine with 225g of Demerara sugar and 75g of golden syrup. Add 275g of porridge oats and the zest of a lemon. Press the mixture into two 8inch round tins lined with baking parchment and bake for 30 minutes at 160 degrees celsius until golden brown. Then enjoy with a glass of milk or a cup of tea!

Spring has sprung….

We marked the first day of Spring (Celtic Spring) by celebrating Saint Brigid’s Day in the church with Fr. Murtagh. Check out our Saint Brigid’s crosses we made during art!

It has been a relatively mild winter and as a result, the daffodils and crocus bulbs have emerged from the ground quite early this year. The yellow crocus were planted to remind us annually of Holocaust Memorial Day (29th January), which has just passed.

The Green Schools have been quite busy preparing the garden area and planting a large assortment of bulbs which were given to us by Woodies DIY in Dundalk – a big thank you to them. Derek from Fourth Class has been coordinating the bulb planting for us.

Several projects associated with our current green flag as well individual  projects have been completed by the senior classes in the school.

Regards, The Green Schools Committee
