Well done to the students who beat the teachers in both the Junior and Senior matches!
As part of our Active Week fun, we held a Skills Display in the hall! There were some amazing displays of talent, across a range of sports and skills.
We had a great day on Friday on our school tour. We went to Let’s Go in Gormanston.
We did lots of activities, including zorbing, bouncy castle, climbing wall and orienteering. Click on the link to see some pictures.
To celebrate the raising of our 6th Green Schools Flag we held an Action Day in the school on Friday 1st June.
Each class displayed the work they had done to help achieve the flag. The theme was Global Citizenship – Litter and Waste. The projects, art work and games on display were varied and all were very interesting.
Well done also to the Green School Committee for all their hard work over the last two years!
Work on our 7th flag will begin in September!

We recently recieved our 6th Green Schools Flag at a ceremony in The Helix in DCU.
We will have our Green School’s Action Day on Friday 1st June. We will offically raise the flag on that day.
All parents are welcome to attend the Action Day on Friday, between 11.15am and 12.15pm. The flag will be raised at 12.15pm.
We’ve been making the most of the recent sunny weather! We’ve had a picnic lunch each day. We have also played rounders, football and basketball. We love being outside!
We love to dance! We use Go Noodle in our classroom. We love to follow the dance steps and try to keep up with all the moves.
We also have ‘Lunchtime Listening’. At lunch time we put on music and dance!

We learned about the artist Georges Seurat in art this week. He used a technique called pointilism, painting using dots in stead of brush strokes. We tried to paint his most famous picture, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, using only dots of paint.
It’s very time consuming!
We received more letters this week from our Pen Pals in Canada.
We are busy writing back to them!
We have been learning about measuring length in maths. We had great fun measuring things in our class room! Our statue of Jesus measures 63 cm tall!
We have been learning about the Global Goals for Sustainable Develpment. These are a set of 17 goals agreed by the United Nations (UN).
These goals aim to to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. We are taking part in the Our World Irish Aid Awards. This competiton aims to raise awareness of the goals.
We took part in a Skype lesson to learn more about the global goals. We learned about a town in Scotland where they successfully banned the use of plastic straws.
We also took part in a Skype lesson about the damage that is being done to the Coral Reefs by pollution.
Inspired by these lessons, we have decided to try and end the use of plastic straws. We have written to over 30 businesses in Balbriggan to ask them to stop selling or serving plastic straws.
We also wrote to Fingal County Council and Balbriggan Tidy Towns.
You can support us by not using single use plastic straws! You can see some pictures by clicking here.
We took part this morning in the 10 at 10. These are fun exercises on RTEjr. They are broadcast every day at 10am.
