We had a visit on Friday from Eimer. She is a marine biologist. She works with sharks and seahorses. We learned a lot about sharks and we got the chance to handle some artifacts. Click on the link to see some pictures.
Last Friday we had our first mystery Skype with a school in Japan.
The found us before we found them! We had lots of fun and they answered lots of questions for us about Japan. Their school in in Akita in the North of Japan.
Well done to all our pupils who contributed to the collection this morning. The collection of sweets and treats are from our pupils’ Halloween stash from Trick or Treat.

Yesterday we had a very exciting visit from Redmond O’ Toole. Redmond is a professional guitarist and has played with the Chieftains. He has played in some of the most famous concert halls all over the world. He plays the classical guitar so you might hear him playing some Bach and classical Spanish pieces. He is a teacher with the Royal Irish Academy of Music. His student Marina Kilmurray came with him too and it was cool because she is from Balbriggan! Redmond brought an 8 string guitar and played some wonderful pieces for us!
Leah said “It was fantastic I had never seen a guitar like that before”
Max said “His fingers moved so quick when he was playing”
Killian said “He was good at playing the music”
Adrian said “It was amazing”
Many thanks to Redmond for visiting and to Deborah Kelleher of the Royal Irish Academy of Music for helping to organise this visit!
