Time For Chess

This year, children from Third Class to Sixth Class will learn to play chess. Today, a small group of children played some friendly games against each other. The children had great fun and enjoyed the games.

The Junior Entrepreneur Programme Has Begun

Today, 5th Class started their journey of the innovative programmee ‘Junior Entrepreneur’. This is the first class in the school to participate in this programme. Today, children brainstormed the word ‘entrepreneur’ and then looked up its meaning in the dictionary. Children also looked up words such as ‘initiative’, ‘enterprise’, ‘tycoon’ and ‘undertaking’. Children drew a picture of what their interpretation of an ‘entrepreneur’ is. They also named local and national entrepreneurs. We had a fantastic start to the programme. Could we have the next successful entrepreneur in the class?

The Scientific Dilemmas of Dippy the Dinosaur

To celebrate Science Week, second class attended a STEM show titled ‘The Scientific Dilemma’s of Dippy the Dinosaur’ in the Lime Tree Theatre in Mary Immaculate College. Children learned about Paleontologists and the intrepid explorers of unchartered territories. They discovered fossils of prehistoric proportions and then used them to unravel the puzzles surrounding the lives of dinosaurs. They explored some mind-boggling dilemmas of the magnificent sauropod: DIPLODOCUS. It was a fantastic event and the children really enjoyed the day!

Science Projects School Exhibition

Children in fourth class had a school exhibition and presented their projects to the children in Junior Infants, Senior Infants, First Class, Second Class and Third Class. Children had an opportunity to interact with the different groups, asking questions, playing games and exploring different topics. All of the classes had great fun. The boys and girls in Fourth Class did a great job! Well done to all of the boys and girls!

Intel Science Exhibition

Today, Intel Judges, Tommy and David, visited our school to view the exhibition of projects by Fourth Class. Projects ranged from making board games, to carrying out experiments to simply answering questions they always wondered! It was a fantastic day for all the children involved. All of the children received certs and a goody bag for competing in the Intel competition. Winners on the day were: Aideen Kinsella, Darragh Meehan and Katie Belle Clohessy who finished in second position and Jaime Collins, Cillian Holmes, Luke Rainsford and James Hartnett who came in first position and will represent Murroe N.S. in the County finals, taking place at the end of November in Intel Headquarters!


Children in First and Third Class worked together to complete a ‘STEM Maths Trail’ today. Children in Third Class guided children to First Class to explore, investigate, measure, estimate and problem-solve in all areas of the Maths curriculum. Children solved questions in the classroom, around the school building and outside in the school grounds. It was a very enjoyable activity for all involved. Well done boys and girls!
