Junior Infants First Day

Welcome to all the new Junior Infants and well done! The girls were very eager to get into their new class and begin exploring. They had great fun playing on the first day with lots of new toys. They read the story about Eli’s first day at school and even coloured in a picture of him!

In order to get us ready for writing we have been putting our fingers through their paces daily during ‘Finger Gym’ time. The children participate in a variety of fine motor activities in a bid to improve their grip for when it comes to writing time! We mix the stations up and have great fun.

4th class school tour 2017

4th class school tour to the National Heritage Park and Wexford Leisure Max Activity Centre

4th class girls enjoyed an interactive guided tour of the National Heritage Park Wexford recently. In this outdoor Museum park, depicting 9000 years of recreated Irish history, the girls enjoyed investigating and comparing Ancient Irish Lifestyles with modern day life in a fun manner.

In the Leisure Max Activity Centre all the girls participated in fun activities, learning some new skills and developing friendships and team building skills. We also celebrated a birthday there!

An exciting fun day was had by all.
