We all dressed up in scary costumes for Halloween .We had lots of fun with costumes and a great day.
In art we made some spider webs by weaving wool. We added our own spiders the.
In science we explored chromatography, which was where we separated the colours in ink to make some really cool patterns. We used this to make a spooky moon for some more halloween art. it was lots of fun!

Over the past couple of weeks the boys have been working hard to gather as many shoeboxes, filled with some Christmas gifts, for those in need for Team Hope’s annual appeal. The boys (and their parents!) have done so well and have collected an amazing 120 boxes to be sent to those in need this Christmas. It was a brilliant effort by everyone involved and all your efforts are hugely appreciated. Well done all!

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!

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.
