On Wednesday 21st October 2015, the boys and girls from First Class took part in our annual ‘Witches and Wizards Wood Walk’. The boys and girls had a great day. We saw lots of signs of Autumn including colourful leaves, acorns and nuts. We had a lovely walk around the woods and we finished up by feeding the ducks. Here are some pictures from our day.
Maths Week 2015 was a huge success! Children travelled to the Youth Café and Sweeney’s to spend their money and consolidate the money strand of the curriculum. Activities throughout the week demonstrated how maths can be both fun and useful. We had a bake sale on the Friday and the proceeds are going to St. Vincent De Paul. A big thank you to all the parents/guardians and children for their co-operation in making this a very enjoyable and educational week for all.
On Friday the 16th of October, two firemen, Gordon and Tommy, presented a Fire Safety Programme to the pupils in Third Class. Along with learning about fire safety each child received a pack from the firemen explaining different methods of fire prevention and keeping safe at home.
Hard luck to the boys football team who narrowly missed out on a place in the Cumann na mBunscol final. They made a brilliant fightback to earn a draw with Cappagh National School, who now go through to the final. Scoil Bhride’s girls team also had a good year and made big improvements thoughout the year.
Lá na gCrann (Tree Day) took place this month on the 8th of October. Ms. Keane’s Junior Infants and Mr. Nugent’s Second Class helped plant a new Hazel tree on the school grounds to celebrate the day.
On Thursday 1st October, boys and girls from Scoil Bhríde travelled to Tullamore Harriers to take part in the Offaly Cross Country Athletics competition. 32 boys and girls from 3rd to 6th class made the trip and competed in various distances throughout the day.
