Fun Fun Fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is a great variety of events that individual children may be interested in entering.
The show is on Sunday 10th of June 2018 this year.
It will be a great day out with lots of free bouncy castles and picnic areas.
The new website is www.dundalkshow.com. Children from all around County Louth are encouraged to come along as it is for the community and without the community there would be no show.
Wouldn’t it be lovely to have some of our Carlingford children take part in the things they enjoy!
We had a great day celebrating ‘Water Action Day’.
For two years, the whole school have been working towards our Green School’s Flag for water. The whole school have been learning about all the different ways to save water and we all have better water awareness.
For water action day, all the children wore blue. They brought in one euro and this money is being donated to RNLI charity. Thank you to everyone who contributed towards this.
We had guest speakers in from the RNLI who spoke to us all about water safety. It was a fun assembly! In assembly, we also read out a water pledge from each class with our promises on them. Some pupils won an art competition for designing posters to create water awareness. They were presented with prizes in assembly.
]Throughout the day, children were involved in lessons that promoted water awareness.
We have been very busy over the past three years promoting positive health and well-being here in St. Oliver’s N.S.
There are many informative publications available from various foundations. We intend to distribute a selection of these in the coming days.
Below are some of these publications.
Here are also a few links to online resources.
Preparation for the engineering exhibition.
Investigating gravity and air resistance.
All the pupils in 3th, 4th, 5th and 6th class presented at our senior science show this year. It was amazing to see all the scientific investigations that have been going on in all classrooms this year.
3rd Class demonstrated investigations on the conduction of heat, friction and shapes for all the senior classes.

Mrs Crossan’s class presented to Junior Infants, Senior Infants and Second Class some of the topics that they have been learning about throughout the year.
The children were excellent at presenting and explaining about Bones, Senses, Plants and the Life Cycle of a Frog.
The children were able to ‘create’ a tornado in a bottle and a cloud in a jar – very impressive.
We had great fun this week planting. We spent time cleaning up around the school, picking up litter, getting rid of the weeds and digging for fresh soil. Each class then took it in turns to plant a range of items.
Thank you very much to Joanne for helping to organise all the planting and also to the team of parents who helped us throughout the morning.
It was a great success!
This is what we planted:
Junior Infants– Broad beans
2nd Class-Lettuce/spring onions
4th/5th Class– Potatoes
6th Class– Carnations
6th class also planted lettuce and they are going to carry out an experiment to see which materials deter slugs and snails.
