Irish Aid Centre & National Art Gallery

On Thursday, the 5th of May the children in 6th Class went on a trip to Dublin to visit the Irish Aid Centre and the National Art Gallery. The children had a great time in the Irish Aid Centre learning songs in Swahili, trying on traditional Africana clothes and playing African instruments. The children were very lucky to see the newly opened Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition in the Art Gallery. The children looked at and discussed the ten drawings from the Royal Collection. Thanks to all the children, parents and teachers who were involved in making this day such a success.

Puppet Show At Scoil Bhride

Moon and Sixpence Puppet Theatre visited the school last Tuesday and put on two fantastic shows of Red Riding Hood (Junior classes) and Over the Rainbow (Senior classes). Each show was thoroughly enjoyed by all with some teachers getting a special mention by the puppets – even Mr. Duffy! Thanks to Moon and Sixpence as well as all of the children and teachers for their cooperation.
