Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class have been taking part in yoga once a week. All the children have had so much fun! They all really enjoyed learning new breathing and poses.
The month of May is a very special month for Mary so we made a May Altar to say our prayers at every morning. Children from our class featured on the Rosary Relay on icatholic.ie so we said our prayers with that video some mornings too.
Adam and Abbi represented our class on the Green Schools Committee when the judges from the Grow and Eco Tribes Awards came to talk to the children about the planting of the Thyme Keepers Garden. Mrs Moran said they did really well answering all the questions and she learned a lot from them.
This week we had very important Maths and English tests. Everyone tried their best. We got to visit the playground because of the lovely sunny weather. We all had great fun playing and climbing!

The children will be asked to bring in €1 for this dress up day.

Greetings from the Green Schools team on a very hot and busy week, long may the good weather last! Our new Eco Tribes garden is starting to come into flower now and looks fantastic. Last year’s garden is looking more established and the yew tree is thriving. Both gardens are an asset to the school and the local community.
The judges from the Eco Tribes came to the school and questioned all the children involved . It was reassuring to hear very detailed answers and genuine enthusiasm for this huge project. The judges seemed very impressed as well. We hope all our hard work has paid off. We will be representing our school for the Grow and Eco Tribes Awards in mid June and we have our fingers crossed. Let us take this opportunity to thank Mrs Moran, our pupils, teachers, tidy towns and parents for all their hard work and contributions to this project.
Regards, The Green Schools Committee
Adam and Abbi (First Class) and Ryan and Neala (Second Class) received certificates from Mrs Moran for their great enthusiasm when speaking to the judges from the Grow and Eco Tribes Awards.

Our bird was kidnapped!!!
Our bird for the Cake Sale raffle was kidnapped on Thursday morning! Everyone was very worried.
Mrs Moran go an email from the person that took him. They sent her this message:
If you solve some clues and agree to our demands below the bird will be returned unharmed.
- WE DEMAND NO HOMEWORK
Luckily enough, Junior and Senior Infants decided to see if they could solve the clues to find the missing bird. Everyone was hoping that they would! They managed to solve the clues and find the bird. We were all so relieved and also very happy that we had no homework on Thursday night!
