On World Book Day, 7th March, 5th/6th class visited Dubray Books in Rathmines. We listened to author Owen O’Doherty talk about his book “Bright Sparks.” We enjoyed finding out how he got the inspiration for his book and some of the contents. We got to use our World Book Day tokens and all had a great time!

On Friday 19th June, 3rd-6th class headed to Tayto Park on tour. We saw how the crisps are made, walked around the zoo and then the adventure park. The Cu Chulainn rollercoaster was the attraction of the day! Bravo all you thrill seeking children that went on it!
Our bulbs are in bloom, adding a splash of welcome colour to the yard!
We went to Airfield on Tuesday 11th November. As you can see from the pictures we really enjoyed ourselves... thank goodness the rain stayed away until we left!
