Ms. Murray’s class

New G.P. Hall

admin : August 18, 2018 8:43 pm : Mr. MacLochlainn, Mr. Monahan, Mr. Mulhall, Ms. Fox, Ms. Mahoney, Ms. McCarthy, Ms. McTigue, Ms. Murray, News

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.

Adire Inspired Art

admin : April 12, 2018 12:45 pm : Ms. Murray

We made art inspired by Adire textile art which is an indigo-dyed cloth made in Nigeria by Yoruba women. The women make the textile art using a variety of resist-dyeing techniques. We made patterns on watercolour paper using wax crayons. Then we painted over the wax crayon with a mixture of blue and black paint with added water. The wax then resisted the paint! We made birds with oil pastels to make tribal colours and patterns. After it was dry we stuck the birds on. We think they look great!

Leaf Printing

admin : March 21, 2018 12:16 pm : Green Schools, Ms. Murray

We collected lots of different leaves to use for printing. We put white paint on the inside of the leaves and used them to print onto black paper. To print we pushed them onto the paper and carefully lifted them up. Once they were dry we coloured in the spaces with colouring pencils before using sponges to paint around the leaves.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

admin : March 16, 2018 2:22 pm : Mr. MacLochlainn, Mr. Monahan, Mr. Mulhall, Ms. Fox, Ms. Mahoney, Ms. McCarthy, Ms. McTigue, Ms. Murray, News

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.

Rugby Blitz

On the 15th of March 5th and 6th class went to the rugby blitz. We were separated up into 7 teams of ten. We played against our own teams and Leitrim.  When we were togged out we were given crisps, water and apples.  Nicole from Loughrea Rugby Club was training us for the last 6 weeks getting ready for the blitz. We had lots of fun.
