School Activities


Fantastic DNA Project

The girls from 4th, 5th and 6th classes had a very interesting science week. On Wednesday the girls in Ms O Briens class went to UCC where they listened to the Across Africa talk. They found it very interesting. On Thursday the UCC Cell Explorers team came to the school where they did a workshop and experiments with Ms. O Leary's and Ms. O Brien's classes. The Fantastic DNA Project let the children try and extract DNA from bananas. As you can see from the pictures below the children were very interested in the experiment and successfully extracted DNA from the bananas.

Basketball with Ciarán

On Friday the girls from 2nd to 6th classes went up to Neptune Stadium where Ciarán from Cork Sports Partnership showed the girls some more basketball skills. The girls really enjoyed playing the games that Ciarán did with them and benefited from the skills that he showed them. They will be practising their new skills over the coming weeks and months when they go up to Neptune with their teachers.

Puppets in 2nd class

2nd class had some new members to their class this week when they got to use puppets. For English the pupils had to introduce their puppets to the class and tell their group about them, before writing an info page on them. All the children had a great time doing this. On Friday the class had a great time putting on a puppet show for each other.

Basketball in Neptune

We are so lucky in North Pres to be so close to Neptune Stadium. We would like to say a huge thank you to Paul and the rest of the management team for their wonderful generosity in allowing our boys and girls to use their facilities each week this year! So far  1st, 2nd and 3rd classes have gone up to Neptune and played basketball. Look at some pictures of the 3rd class in action.

Dress up Day

The whole school enjoyed dress up day last Friday. The children wore their costumes into school and some of the teachers joined in the fun as well dressing up. Junior and Senior infants went trick or treating to the older classes, while 4th, 5th and 6th classes entertained the whole school by showing us the Thriller dance. Early Start loved hearing the story "Room on the Broom" and 3rd class did some Halloween art.

Halloween in Junior Infants

Mr. O Connor and Ms. Coleman's classes really enjoyed learning about Halloween. They dressed up on Friday in different costumes and went trick or treating to the older classes. They also got to watch the 6th class preform the Thriller dance for them. Earlier in the week they decorated some cakes and made them look very spooky. Mr. O Connor's class carved a scary face on a pumpkin and made a Jack-o-lantern.
