Last week Sorcha Brophy of An Taisce and Mrs.White took the 5th and 6th class committee members on a walk of the most common routes taken by pupils to and from school. The girls took notes about the good and bad point things about the routes. We concluded that there were many positive aspects to our route to school. The pavements are in good condition. We have a great lollipop lady and also traffic lights to help pupils cross the road safely. We have a cycle lane on both sides of the road. We noted that the junction at Kierans Butcher’s is extremely busy and we would advise pupils to look carefully before crossing. We would ask parents not to park in the cycle lanes or footpaths to ensure that all pupils have a good view of oncoming traffic.

The girls in Mrs.White’s class had great fun decorating bananas as part of the Fyffes Primary School Competition. The creations ranged from Rihanna Banana to Jedward bananas! The girls researched how bananas grow and their many health benefits using our school ipads. They also carried out an experiment to look at the ripening process of bananas. We hope you like our photos!
