Third and Fourth class have been learning a lot about looking after our teeth and healthy eating. The Healthy Mouth Programme has taught us all about proper care of our teeth and what foods and drinks we should have to keep them sparkly white and healthy. We’ve learned how to take care of our teeth, how to brush correctly and identified how kind or unkind certain foods and drinks are for our teeth. We also had the opportunity to dye our teeth and tongues pink using disclosing tablets and we looked at models which showed us how we could harm our teeth and gums if we don’t take proper care of them.

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.

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.
