We are coming to the end of our Food Dude adventure Part 1. Well done to all those who tried new fruit and vegetables and kept trying. Remember each time you try a new food your taste buds get to like it a little bit more.
Thank you to all my Food Dude delivery people and basket collectors from 6th class.

This week, we are looking for the funniest caption to the picture above.
Take your time and write a short and funny caption. Have a look at our funny Harry Potter example below to help you out. Remember, the winner gets a night off written homework. The wittiest and funniest answer will be chosen next Monday (14th March). Good luck everyone!
On Tuesday, forty eight of our 5th and 6th class students took part in a 3 kilometre trail run around Avondale House. It was a very successful day with all students completing the difficult course. Well done to all the participants for representing the school so well.
A big thank you to Mr. O’Neill and Ms. Lambkin for organising the St. Kevin’s team and to Mr. McNeice and the two parents who came along to help. A great day was had by all!
(Ms. Lambkin ran the course twice with all the students to make sure everything was going smoothly… next year she should definitely get a medal…)
