The girls in Mrs.White’s class are participating in the Eco-Tribes project. Louth County Council has given 10 schools the opportunity to transform a piece of land into a bee and butterfly garden. The aim of the project is to bring the local community together (pupils, children, parents, Tidy Town members) to design a garden.

The girls decided to name their tribe ‘The Hawthorn Tribe’ because this year they read the book ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’ by Marita Conlon McKenna. It is very apt that the hawthorn was chosen as it is often referred to as the May Tree.Pamela Whitaker who advised all 10 schools along the way suggested linking the design of the garden with
something of meaning to the school. Many possible designs were drawn up but the tribe decided to create a garden based on the hands of our school crest.Saturday, April 20th was the date chosen to dig the two beds. An army of helpers turned up that day and we were blessed with the weather. A big thank you to the children, parents, teachers, Tidy Towns members and our caretaker Don for all the digging, stone picking and planting carried out that day. Click on the link to see the fun had by all on that Saturday!

The girls in 4th class put on a wonderful performance of Annie before Easter. Over ninety girls from four classes took part in the show. The girls practised for a number of weeks with their drama teacher Jamie Mc Carthy and teachers Ms. Mullins, Ms McNamara, Mrs. White  and Ms. Kilcoyne. The show featured all the unforgettable songs from the hit film including ‘It’s a hard knock life’, ‘Maybe’, ‘Little Girls’ and many more. The show ended with all ninety students on stage singing ‘Tomorrow’ and a massive round of applause.
