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.
Today the whole school got their Hi-Vis vests on and we went walking around our beautiful village, Carlingford. We are very proud of all the children in St. Oliver’s because from Junior Infants to 6th Class every child took part with great enthusiasm.
The 5th and 6th Class girls choreographed a dance routine for a song they liked for this year’s ‘Wake Up Shake Up’ activity for Active Flag Week. Each morning before school the girls have been leading all the pupils and staff in the dance routine. Everyone is really enjoying it and the 5th/6th Class girls are incredible dancers.
The children are having great fun with the ‘Drop Everything and Dance’ activity, which is part of Active Flag Week. The children are all very busy working when one member of the Active Flag Committee goes around all the classes ringing a bell saying ‘Drop Everything and Dance’. It is great fun.
Congratulations on all the wonderful AWARDS! We love to see your commitment and dedication!
We’d a great day today enjoying a picnic on the green in Carlingford, visiting the beach and playing with our class in the play park. What a fantastic way to make the most this amazing weather!
All the children from 3rd Class to 6th Class had a fantastic morning climbing Slieve Foye Mountain. The children really enjoyed the walk and had a brilliant time. The weather was absolutely fantastic, we were very lucky to get such a nice day. Thank you to our fantastic guide Aisling.
First and second class had a fantastic time on their school tour last week.
We firstly learned about being safe on the beach from a life guard. We then got a chance to sit in the RNLI boat and try out the sirens on the coast guard jeep.
However the icing on the cake was definitely when 2nd class got to meet their penpals and enjoy a picnic together. We ended the tour with a very quick run around the Narnia trail in Kilbroney Park.
On Friday, 5th and 6th class travelled to Lisburn. Our first stop was the ‘Ulster Aviation Society’. The children had a fantastic time exploring different aircraft from World War 2. We then went to the Waterpark in Lisburn. The children enjoyed themselves in the pool and using all the water slides. To finish the day off, the whole class had a lovely picnic together.
Third and Fourth Class had a fantastic time on our school tour. Our first stop was Croke Park. Led by our fantastic guides Lee and Ermano, we harnessed up and climbed 17 storeys to the top of the Skyline. We explored the skyline and looked at the amazing views of Dublin city. Next we explored behind the scenes at Croke Park, including the V.I.P Lounge, the dressing rooms and the pitch. Finally we tested our sporting skills in the GAA Museum. Before returning home, we stopped off at Ardgillan Castle Playground.
