June Assembly

Junior Infants led us in our last assembly of the year, demonstration  how much they have learnt and grown this year.

Some of our excellent pupils were presented with the final excellence awards of the year.

A record number of pupil were presented with awards for perfect attendance this year and lots of our pupils received awards for only missing 1 – 3 days. Well done!

Finally, we presented our 6th class pupils with graduation certificates and St. Oliver’s N.S. pens, to  recognise their years of hard work, fun and dedication to our school. We will miss each of them greatly and wish them so well on their new journey in secondary school.

It has been another wonderful year in St. Oliver’s N.S!

Memorable Mountain Walk 2016

The senior classes got the fantastic opportunity to experience our wonderful peninsula during a mountain walk recently. We explored the famine village and climbed to the top of Bearnavave and we had our lunch on the Saddle at Slieve Foy.  

Thank you to Aisling for leading us on this very memorable walk.

Perfect Puppets 2016

Pupils really enjoyed their final art project of the year, combining clay, fabrics and paint. They relished the opportunity to create puppets and the results were amazing.

Senior School Tour 2016

Pupils had a great time on our Senior School Tour this year. The interactive 1916 exhibition and art workshop was very interesting and enlightening as lots of pupils didn’t know that we have a fantastic museum in Dundalk.

It was also such a treat to have a private viewing of ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ in the cinema.

Amazing Australia

Pupils really enjoyed learning about Amazing Australia this year and completing presentations in groups for their peers. We were so lucky to interview children who attend school in Australia, and are also the cousins of some of our amazing pupils!

Father’s Day Word Clouds

Pupils enjoyed selecting adjectives to describe the important men in their lives to create word clouds as a centre piece on their wonderful Father’s Day cards this year. Well done! Very creative.

ONE BOOK ONE COMMUNITY 2016-Starting September 2016

 

ONE BOOK ONE COMMUNITY 2016

Get ready now for September 2016

lION WITCH

Who: St Oliver’s N.S.- Parents, Pupils, Staff and The Wider Carlingford Community

What are we doing? Embarking on a new adventure reading “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” by C.S.Lewis

 When: Starting in SEPTEMBER 2016

 ‘One book one community’ is an initiative to promote reading and literacy in a school, family and community setting.

  • It involves all pupils and their families reading the same book over a period of time.
  • The book will be read in the school by teachers or volunteers. The reading and book-talk we hope will be continued at home.
  • Here in Carlingford, we are fortunate to have a wonderful community of teachers, staff, parents, pupils and people from our wider community who are embarking on this adventure with us for the very first time as part of this new initiative.
  • The aim is to cover approx. 1 chapter per week starting in September. The pupils will then get the opportunity to discuss what they have read in class, at home and out and about in the local community.
  • It would be fantastic if you, could find the time to read the book as well. You could then share your experience of the reading with the people in the community you meet. Please spread the word and share the pleasure of reading around our COMMUNITY.
