Wemberly Worried

In SPHE for the last few weeks we have been talking about worry and anxiety. We read a lovely story called  “Wemberly Worried” by Kevin Henkes.

We talked a lot about our own little worries and how to help ourselves.

Finally we re-told the story in our own words and drew our own pictures and made a little book for you to watch, listen and enjoy.

Athlone Castle & Luan Gallery

On Thursday 24th January we went to Athlone Castle and the Luan Gallery. I went to Athlone Castle first. When we arrived we were told all about what the castle was used for. Athlone Castle was used for defence and was also the home to whoever lived in it at the time. Then we were brought inside a part of the castle. In this part there was loads of things people would have used in that time.

Next we were brought to a room where we could dress up as different characters. This was really fun. To finish it off we watched a short film about what it would have been like in those times in Athlone.

We were also brought to the Luan Gallery which had lots of different paintings which were really nice. The first room we were brought into was all about bogs. There was a second room with lots of different paintings of trees. In both rooms we were given a sheet to fill in.

My favourite room was the second room because it was more colourful. I really enjoyed my trip.

Athlone Castle Art Competition winner

This is Sean’s winning entry – and I think we can all agree with the judging committee in Athlone Castle that it is a well-deserved winner!









We are very proud to announce that Seán won the recent Art competition in Athlone Castle with his Suffragette poster.

The competition was organised to mark the centenary of us ladies winning the right to vote! Sean received Art supplies for his creation and while collecting his award at a ceremony last Saturday he won a draw securing a day trip to the Castle for his whole class.

Seán’s work is currently on display in the Castle so if you have a moment be sure to pop in for a look.

Well done Seán!



Christmas Child Shoebox Collection

As we do each year we ask the pupils to think of those that may not be as fortunate as ourselves and encourage them to support the Christmas Child Shoebox initiative – and we are delighted to say that there was a great response. The boxes were collected form the school after the min-term break, here are photos’ of some of our contribution to the overall effort. We wish to express our thanks to everyone.
