One of the winners this year in the Louth and Meath poetry competition was Alex Smyth, a 4th class student from Room 6. Her poem was selected from an adjudicating panel from all over Ireland and chosen to be published in the book ”Into the Future”. This year children in Louth and Meath unleashed their vision of things to come in the future and competed to have their poem published. Alex’s creative poem will surely put a smile on anyone’s face.

The girls in Mrs.White’s class enjoyed making hand puppets last week. They all learnt how to thread a needle and then they chose which type of stitching they were going to use. A big thank you to all the parents who helped out! It was very much appreciated. The girls had great fun decorating their puppets with buttons, feathers, ribbon and felt pieces. We hope you enjoy the photos of their wonderful creations!

Last month each of the 4th classes took a trip to Newgrange. They started their visit in the Interpretative Centre where they enjoyed the exhibition and the audio-visual presentation. At Newgrange they learnt many new facts about this ancient site from their tour guides. Their favourite part was when they saw the re-enactment of the sunlight illuminating the passageway. They also enjoyed counting the 97 kerbstones that surround the base of Newgrange and searching for those with carvings.

Today we had a wonderful visit from the author of The Secrets of Grindlewood series of books, Jackie Burke. The children really enjoyed listening to Jackie talk about what inspired her to write the Grindlewood series. Jackie read an extract from her latest book. She spoke to the girls about the importance of reading lots of different types of books to help them come up with their own ideas for writing. The children got an opportunity to ask lots of interesting questions and were thrilled to receive a specially autographed bookmark from Jackie.

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 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!

Despite being a cold morning our first WOW and COW day was a huge success. In total 180 girls walked or cycled to school. This is 52% of our school population. A total of 340 travelled to school by sustainable modes of transport. This is a whopping 92% of our pupils! The first winners of the Golden Boot Award are Ms.Whelan’s 5th class and the first winners of the Golden Globe Award are Ms.Kilcoyne’s 4th class. Well done to all pupils who participated in the event and we hope to see continued success with our new initiative.
