Today we were given the news that we had been approved of a IT award. An assessor came to the school on Friday to see how we use our IT. We told him about our new laptops,Ipads and our dropbox system. We were also we were suppost to Skype a class in France but sadly that wasn’t possible as our internet was down. We also told him that we bring in tablets every Friday and we bring them down to the infants for half an hour to play with. We are delighted to have achieved this award.

Mike O’Shea the Ice man

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 16th June 2014

Last Tuesday Mike O’Shea came to visit us. He is an North Pole explorer from back in Dingle. He told us about his adventures and what its like in the North Pole. You have to get up every four hours to clean your tent in the North Pole or else it will be covered in ice! Also you can’t have any liquids (except water and hot chocolate in a flask) and you mostly only have porridge for breakfast , lunch and dinner. And he told us all about how to survive in the cold too. I thought it was very interesting.

School Tour

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 16th June 2014

Last week we went on our school tour to Knockreer House and Muckross Farm. We started off in Knockreer House and we learned all about wildlife. We got to see thing under a microscope, we caught little mice and observed them until we let them free and we had a hunt. We then went to Muckross Farm, we saw old the old house and we even got to try some old bread and make some butter! We also got to see some animals like horses and dogs. It was a very good and wet day!
