We made clay pots (based on ancient Egyptian pots) a few days ago which had two different ways of being made. Pinching it was one way of doing it which was a quicker but maybe not as well shaped as the other ways, you just push against the clay until you have shaped it into a pot. After that we made lids for our pots with some of the Egyptian gods made onto our lids and we are still waiting on them to dry.

We did some art on hieroglyphics. Hieroglyphics was the ancient Egyptian way of writing.Over the years archaeologists have discovered an alphabet which is pretty accurate. The hieroglyphics were drawn on rocks and included bird drawings and plenty of other cool drawings, we drew our names or other little messages out on pieces of paper and cut them out with curves to make them look older. `

Van Gogh art

We did a piece of art called starry night. It was very colourful and had a big lighthouse looking over a little village. We put nice lighting colours and different shades of dark for the sky, they came out very cool but not quite as good as Van Gogh.

New G.P. Hall

This year the school has begun work on a new general purpose room for the school. We have not received any funds from the Department of Education and Skills and so the project will be entirely self funded. This, needless to say, will be a huge undertaking, but is necessary as the school is in desperate need of a suitable hall for school activities and classes. This will require a huge fundraising effort and so we hope the whole school community can get involved over the coming months. Our fundraising begins with our Golf Classic event, hosted by Loughrea Golf Club from the 12th to the 15th of September. All are welcome to take part and all support greatly appreciated.
The 3D images below are renderings of what our finished hall will look like from the outside. It will certainly be a huge addition to the school!

This week was Active School week. We did different activities every day. Every morning we walked to school from the Cathedral and Baunóg. Sometimes we had as many as 90 boys walking together to school.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

On the 8th of March all the classes took part in Ceolchoirm Seachtain na Gaeilge. Seachtain na Gaeilge (Irish Week) is celebrated over 2 weeks in the run up to St. Patrick’s Day each year. During that fortnight we make an extra effort to speak Irish during our school day and celebrate all things Irish at our annual concert. Each class performed songs, tunes on the tin whistles and poems ‘as Gaeilge’. Some of 5th and 6th class boys volunteered to take part in a play organised by Ms. Lawless and Ms. Broderick called The Wizard Of Oz. All the performances were very good and well performed. At the end we sang the Ireland national anthem, Amhrán na bhFiann. It was a lovely day.
