Spring Cleaning and Planting Prep in our School Garden

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Great to see such enthusiasm among all the pupils who picked up litter, weeded planting beds and planted raspberries. Some of the pupils were involved in making a log pile in order to create a new habitat for mini beasts. Others made bird feeders from recycled plastic bottles to attract small native wild birds. Another group of children made a bee 🐝 bath and a bird bath. Congrats to the pupils and teachers and thank you to Joanne one of our active parents and also a member of Carlingford Tidy Towns Committee, for her organisation, support and guidance! The pupils really loved getting out to our outside classroom.

Green Schools Competition

Pupils at St. Oliver’s National School entered a national competition for Green Schools on our theme of ‘Water’. There were some fantastic entries. I’m sure the judges are going to have a tough time deciding on the winners!

Amazing Aztecs

While learning about the Aztecs in history, Third and Fourth Class completed their own research at home.  In groups or individually, the children put in a huge effort to create their own projects in a number of different forms. From PowerPoint to posters, models of ancient Aztec temples and even a game of Patolli, both classes made excellent presentations and displayed a wealth of knowledge. We welcomed the other classes and were delighted to share all we had learned with them.
