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.

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.

Friendship Week Art Competition

This morning we had another whole school assembly to celebrate the end of Friendship week in the school. Ms. Twohig's 2nd recited a poem about friendship while the girls in 4th, 5th, and 6th class led the school singing "How far I'll go" Shandon Street Credit Union kindly sponsored prizes for our Friendship Week art competition. The children had to draw a poster about friendship. Some of the older children wrote poems about friendship instead. Congratulations to the winners from each class. During the week there was a display up next to the Blue Room where examples of how the children were kind were displayed. By the end of the week, the board was full of kind things that the children from all the classes did. In the yard, also this week, was a friendship station. If children couldn't find anyone to play with they would go to the friendship station and some of the older girls would play with them or help them to find someone else to play with. All the children had a great time this week, made some new friends and learned how important it is to be nice to others.
