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.
Senior Infants had fun learning about the colours of the rainbow. They painted beautiful pictures and sang their own rainbow song!
5th/6th Class enjoyed their first training session today with a GAA coach. This week, they focused on their passing skills and working as a team.
5th/6th class have been learning about biodegration in science. This week the pupils investigated the rubbish created by each class at St. Olivers. After the examination, each group was able to devise a list of materials that the pupils at St. Olivers could use to be more kinder to the environment.
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!
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.
Pupils really enjoyed their final art project of the year, combining clay, fabrics and paint. They relished the opportunity to create puppets and the results were amazing.
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.
