Fresh Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs!

On the last day of term the students and some parents had a great time picking all the tasty fruits, vegetables and herbs planted this year. The GROW committee then set up a stall to sell the produce to the parents at St. Oliver’s. Thank you to all who purchased our products, we hope they were delicious!

Fantastic Fidget Spinners

We had great fun designing our own fidget spinners this week. We then turned these designs into functional fidget spinners! 

Next we created our own nets of a cube and made 3D boxes to store our new fidget spinners and keep them safe.

What a treat to have fidget spinners in school!

JI and SI School Tour

The children in Junior Infants and Senior Infants had a fantastic time on our Teddy Bears’ Picnic. We went to the playground before heading across to Ghan House. We visited the orchard, the herb garden as well as testing our knowledge of fruit and vegetables. We also decorated delicious cupcakes and gingerbread men. Following this, we enjoyed our Teddy Bears’ Picnic on the lawns of Ghan House. We had a brilliant time. It really was such fun!

Check out our photographs!
