We wish everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas and look forward to seeing you on our return to school on Monday, 8th of January.

Paired Science

Our 6th classes are currently participating in a Paired Science programme with the Transition year pupils at Ardscoil na Mara.

Most of our work takes place in Ardscoil and this week we learned about safety in the Science lab.

This week also, we went to an event in the Tower Hotel Waterford, attended by all the Primary and Secondary schools who are taking part.

There were many speakers, a giant Paired Science lesson, a presentation of certificates and a short chemistry show.

The programme was devised by Colette Kearney of Mt. Sion Secondary in conjunction with Sanofi and Calmast at W.I.T.

Letters to Santa

The senior infants in room 8 wrote letters to Santa today. They told him that they would leave something nice out for him when he calls to them on Christmas Eve. 

After they wrote their letters they went outside and posted them.  They  wonder if Santa will have time to write back!
