On the 11th of June 2024, we celebrated our 2nd ever Cultural Day. Flora from Culture Connect came in to speak to whole school about Cultural Diversity and help us understand the importance of respecting other's cultures. After school we had our first ever Cultural Fair and we had an amazing time!There were 8 countries represented - Pakistan, Nigeria, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Italy, Ireland and Slovenia. We had an African stall with cultural outfits and music as well as performances from a wonderful group of pupils who performed a Nigerian dance and Aidan Moore and his daughter, Síofra who played songs on the ukulele.The food and information provided at the stalls was amazing and huge credit goes to the volunteer parents from each country who worked so hard to provide a great experience to all who attended. The event was very well attended and there was a lovely atmosphere in the hall.Thank you once again to our parent volunteers, our parents' association who provided Tea, Coffee and refreshments (they were very busy!) and to all members of the community who contributed on the day (there are too many to mention). A special thank you to EK Fuels (Custom Coffee), School Completion Program (Niall Weldon) and Pimi's Food Store (Peter Folikwe), Castletown Road for providing the prizes for the Raffle.We look forward to next year and hosting an even bigger and better fair! If you would like to represent your culture/ country, please contact HSCL Niall McArdle. ... See MoreSee Less

Phonics homework getting a bit boring? Why not give this game a try...All you need is 3 pieces of card. Write a letter on each card (on both sides so both players can see it). Call out "Boom, clap" in a variety of ways and when you want to call out a sound. The first person to grab the correct card is the winner! You could use this to revise tricky/sight words or cvc words also! 😁 I think you'll agree from the smiles and giggles, the junior infants loved this game! 😄 ... See MoreSee Less

We enjoyed having races with our aeroplanes on the small world tuff tray. We also enjoyed putting our cutting skills to work, making our own paper aeroplanes.
