Running to Europe, 2nd Class

Second Class took part in the Run to Europe. For one week, we took to the running track and ran laps for 15 minutes each day. Each lap counted as one kilometre. We ran as far as Paris, France. 

We had a look at the sights of Paris on the IWB; the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the sightseeing boats on the River Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysées, views of Paris on Bastille Day and of course a little look at EuroDisney.

We also practised some French vocabulary, Bonjour, Au Revoir, Merci, Oui Oui, etc.

Then we sang Frere Jacques, and for good measure we sang the song in English (Are you Sleeping) and in Irish (Aindí  Leisciúil). We even sang it in two parts.

We had great fun on our trip to Paris!

Parents’ Association

A very big thank you to our Parents’ Association for the goody bags they provided for all the children last Friday.  They were much appreciated by all!

Incredible Edibles

Congratulations to Third & Fourth class and their teacher Nicholas O’Brien on their crop of vegetables which they enjoyed for their lunch last Friday.  The children made salad sandwiches which included lettuce, spinach and chives which were harvested from the growing pots.  Some of the children will bring home strawberries, potatoes and turnips which are not yet ready for harvesting.  They really enjoyed being involved from the seed to sandwich process.

Many books on our book lists are available secondhand from Gateway to Education, a charity shop on 9 Wickham Street in Limerick.
