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.
4th, 5th and 6th class pupils learned a lot about the fantastic work GOAL do for people suffering from a variety of hardships all over the world.
In particular, they focused on the issues of water transportation and contamination in developing counties.
We are all looking forward to GOAL Jersey day on Friday 9th October to raise money for the great work GOAL do and have fun at the same time.
September has been a very busy and active month in St. Oliver’s and some of our excellent pupils were rewarded for their hard work and the care and compassion they demonstrated during September.
This month, as a school, we also reflected on the effects of famine, both in history and in our world today, by having a one minute silence together.
We had great sport discovering the effect exercise has on your respiration rate. As many of us correctly predicted, it increases the respiration rate and we even calculated the averages in groups.
Secondly, the diaphragm, which is the dome shaped muscle at the bottom of our chest, plays a critical role in the respiration process. We enjoyed making working models demonstrating how the diaphragm actually helps our lungs inflate and deflate.
Our next investigation is calculating how much air we actually release in a breath, so keep checking on our website to find out the results.
Our first vegetable produce was sold by the PA and pupils from Second Class during the month of September- well done to all the wonderful growers and sellers!
We have been learning about lungs in 3rd and 4th class. The pupils created their own lungs through using bottles and balloons. Fun through active learning!
The 1st class pupils and Mr Finegan full of excitement as they turn the corner and are first to see their new classroom!
What a wonderful start to our new pupils’ primary education. Well done to all the brave parents too. A great start and not a tear in sight!;-)
