6th class from St. Kevin’s went on a historical tour to Glasnevin Cemetery recently. It is remarkable how many of the most famous and important figures in our history are buried there and the guides did a great job in telling us interesting facts about these people and how they ended up in Glasnevin. We saw the graves of O’Connell and Parnell right through to de Valera and Collins and also had time to visit the museum where a short movie told of the history of the cemetery itself, mostly centered around the round tower marking the tomb of O’Connell. Over 1.6 million other ordinary Dubliners are buried there too – more people than live in the city itself now.
Mr. Sheekey’s Junior Infants really enjoyed their school tour to Glenroe Farm!
4th class had a great time on their school tour to Fort Lucan on Thursday. There were go karts, see-saws, rope ladders, tunnels, trampolines, crazy golf and, of course, a 4oft. water slide! Have a look at our photos.
The school choir had a special day out to reward them for all their hard work that they had put into singing at the communion and confirmation this year. They got the DART to Bray Bowl where they had a few games of bowling and a pizza party. They then had a quick play at the shore before catching the DART back to the school. Big thanks to Ms. Begg and Mr. O’Neill for organising such a wonderful choir and a great day out !
4th class went to Fort Lucan and had a fantastic time! Check out the video to see some pictures of the day.
For many pupils, the best part of any school tour is the trip on the bus! Last Friday was no exception and along with the singing, chanting and rapping there was an unusual fascination with how many times the double decker bus managed to hit branches of trees in the Dublin mountains – huge cheers going up every time it happened. Here are the culprits……(apart form the adults, of course)
5th class travelled to the Dublin mountains last Friday on their school tour to Zipit. It proved to be a fantastic day for pupils and adults as after a cold start the sun shone through and great fun was had by all. Thanks to Donna and Margaret for their help on the day. Enjoy the pics….!
Ms. Murtagh’s class went on a Greystones Trail last week. Their first stop was at the post box at Brady’s to post their letters ( They wrote letters to people they admire and they really hope they get some replies. Fingers crossed! ). They then walked up Church Road to examine the natural and man made features there. They then turned down the lane way beside Jill’s playschool and headed over the train tracks by bridge and down to the harbour. They were lucky enough to catch sight of a flock of pigeons being released into the sky! The class examined some interesting shells and rocks and then visited Joe Sweeney’s for an icecream and a well earned rest. The weather was on their side and they had an excellent day out.
Mr. McCarthy’s and Ms. Dorman’s 2nd classes went on their tour to Greenan Maze and Farm this week. We had a fantastic time exploring the mazes, visiting the museums and making new animal friends! Check out our video to see the fun things we got up to on the day!
