We have been learning about Penguins in second class. We made fact books and did some lovely art.......we made our penguins by printing potatoes.
Mr. Finlay's 6th class have been doing some work about world poverty. We learned about some of the causes of poverty such as war, drought, natural disasters, etc. It is not only poor countries that suffer from poverty - some of the richest countries in the world still have a lot of it. We also looked at ways we can help and one way is to buy Fairtrade produce in the supermarket. You can get fruit, coffee, tea and even chocolate that is Fairtrade. We did projects on some of the countries that are suffering from poverty. You can download our projects here.

Meanwhile, A big congratulations to three 5th class pupils; Sorcha & Ella (Pictured) and Sophie who played in front of 5,000 supporters at half time in the recent Connacht v Zebre Heineken Cup game. The girls got some great tries during the game for their club Galwegians. No doubt we will be hearing a lot more about the girls in years to come. Well done girls!
