4th Class Debate

Today, 4th class debated the motion ‘Books are Better than Films’. They had been working really hard for the last two weeks preparing their speeches. The debate was very engaging and both sides made some interesting points. Special mention must be given to our speakers, captains, chairperson, timekeeper and, of course, our fantastic audience. Our judges, Ms. Redden and Ms. de Búrca, felt that the proposing team won by a very slight margin. However, the 4th class judges disagreed with this verdict! What do you think? Comment below!

Building the Titanic! – 2nd class

boardingpass

After writing about being on board the Titanic and going on a virtual scavenger hunt of the ship in 3D, each student in Mr. McCarthy’s 2nd class was given a room to examine and sketch. All of the rooms have been put in the correct place but our display isn’t quite finished! We need some fantastic facts!
