You cannot be serious!

Over the past 6 weeks White class have had the opportunity to take part in tennis lessons at Sligo Tennis club. We have acquired new skills and had fun playing lots of games. In our last session we even got to go to the outdoor courts as the weather was kind to us.

Thank you to Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership for your continued support.

Everything is awesome

White class have enjoyed learning new skills for our short course on animation. We have been using clay, playdough and Lego bricks and characters to create our own short stop go animation sketches. The clips have been both enjoyable to make and review.

Nature art

During Our Creative Schools Week in June we invited classes to bring nature indoors. We were delighted to have some lovely dry weather which allowed time for classes to walk in their local community and collect some beautiful leaves, flowers, wool & feathers and create a natural collage.

Away with the birds in Blue Class

In Blue Class, we made some bird feeders during our messy play and hung them in the School Garden and the trees in the car park.

Marine Week

We had fantastic time last week learning about Marine environments. The Green school’s website provided lovely art activities and fact-filled mini-videos from which we learnt a great deal. We are very proud of the work that our students completed, and this can be seen displayed on our Green school’s notice board. With the return of our school bus outings this week we are aiming to conduct a beach clean-up. We will keep you posted! Thanks to An taisce, and especially to all of our staff and students for making it a week to remember! Well done all!IMG_20210428_111155 (1)IMG_20210428_111223IMG_20210428_111401IMG_20210428_111441IMG_20210428_111352IMG_20210428_111212 (1)

Virtual Special Olympics

Image 26-04-2021 at 22.36 Image 26-04-2021 at 22.36

During the month of March we were delighted to take part in a fantastic initiative organised by Special Olympics Ireland – a Virtual Sport Competition.

Lots of our students took part in the motor activities and athletics.

At the start of the month we sent in our times/distances/ effort and then trained at least once a week, some even training three times a week for the month. The new data was then sent in and correlated.

In the Motor Activities we had students from three different classes participate in stepping, beanbag lift and small ball lift activities. They all worked so hard and as can be seen below

Orange class participants, well done girls.









Students in Green class, showing us how it’s done.


Navy class students working so hard, medals to prove it. Great effort.

There were lots of options for all students to participate. The students in White class decided on 25m walk or run and the tennis ball throw from the Athletics Programme. Below is a wonderful video compiled by Anna – one of the SNA’s in our school showing us some highlights from White Class training.


All students in White Class made progress over the month and as a result there were many first places secured well as lots of other medals.. We are so proud of them all and as you can see they were also really proud of themselves as they stepped onto our podium to cheers and  applause from their classmates.
