Everyone in St. Oliver’s N.S. has lots of fun as we learn in school.
Below you’ll find our blog with lots of pictures and news of what we have all been up to throughout the school year. Use the menu above to find our more information about our school and our school community.
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.
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!
5th and 6th class were in a very loving mood for ‘Valentine’s Day’ and created a mixture of Valentine gifts and messages to their loved ones!
A great win from our very own St. Oliver’s pupil in ‘Rás Na hÉireann’. Well done!
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.
All members of the Local Community are welcome to St Oliver’s School for 10@10 on Friday 10th Feb 2017.
Come and support Yvonne Ross and all the children in your local school, we would love to see you join in the fun!
This year Operation Transformation and St Oliver’s have teamed up with Active School Flag, to promote physical activity in primary schools.
We are wishing to achieve an Active Flag this year! Operation Transformation 10@10 on Friday 10th Feb 2017 in our school is one step in the process of applying for our active flag! We look towards gaining that very special blue active flag, which can fly proudly outside our school yard.
Check out some of our warm up 10@10 sessions!!
