5th and 6th class pupils took part in our first Eason Spelling Bee competition recently. Each class held their own internal Spelling Bee and the six overall winners went forward to the ‘Grand School Final’. A tense and anxious audience eagerly supported and cheered the extremely focussed spellers. The two finalists, Alison G and Zoha K, brought the audience to the edge of their seats when they battled through a series of tie-breaker rounds until one pupil emerged victorious, Zoha K.
We look forward to supporting Zoha as she will now represent our school in the upcoming county finals in Dundalk on May 2nd.Congratulations to Zoha and well done to all the spellers for making our Eason Spelling Bee competition an extremely enjoyable event.

Mrs. White and Ms.Carroll’s pupils visited the Jeanie Johnston Tall ship which is docked in Dublin’s city centre. It is an accurate replica of the original ship which sailed between Tralee, Co. Kerry and North America from 1847 to 1855. The girls got to see what life was like on board a wooden tall ship during the Famine era. The highlight of the tour was hearing the stories of the life-sized figures based on actual passengers who sailed on the ship. Thank you to Louth Leader Partnership who provided the funding for this wonderful trip.

6th class (Room 12) were members of a captivated audience who enjoyed a talk recently in the library given by Irish author, Nicola Pierce, about her book ‘The Spirit of the Titanic’. Nicola gave a fascinating talk into the research behind her book, the plot and the setting. She brought the characters to life through her storytelling and even told us that the first victim of the Titanic tragically lost his life two years before the Titanic set sail on her maiden voyage.
Many thanks to Nicola and library staff. A great afternoon was experienced by all!

The girls in 6th class put on a show stopping performance of Grease last Tuesday 24th May. 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. Keenan, Ms Carroll, Ms. Lynch and Ms. Kilcoyne. The show featured all the unforgettable songs from the hit film including ‘You’re The One That I Want’, ‘Summer Nights’, ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’, ‘Sandy’, ‘Greased Lightning’ and many more. The show was bursting with leather jackets, slick hairstyles, cheerleaders and even a rock ’n ’roll dance off. The show ended with all ninety students on stage singing ‘We go Together’ and a massive round of applause. Click here to see some more great photos

Today the girls in 6th class took part in a fitness challenge in conjunction with the Physiotherapy Department in Our Lady of Lourdes hospital. It moved from school to school throughout the day and the idea was to keep the relay going all over the town for the whole day. The challenge involved the girls taking part in 30 minutes of continuous exercise to promote the fact that we should do this amount of exercise everyday if we want to stay fit and healthy. The four classes helped to cheer each other on as they swapped ropes every 3 minutes and skipped for a half an hour. The challenge began at 1pm, when we took over from St Ita’s school and at 1.30pm we passed it on the Fatima to continue the relay.Click into the gallery to see more


Last Week the Irish Coast Guard visited the school to talk to the girls in 6th class about water safety. They gave the girls great advice about how to stay safe in the water and also told them what to do in case of an emergency.

Miss Carroll’s class helped Santa with a problem.  The magic that helps Rudolph to fly had stopped working, so the girls in Room 14 designed model reindeer to solve the problem.  The model held a circuit that powered a bulb for Rudolph’s nose, a propeller for his tail and a switch so Santa could turn it off.  The girls all really enjoyed designing and making the reindeer and learning all about electricity.  Thankfully Santa got to all the houses on time on Christmas Eve with the help from the girls from Room 14.

Today Room 12, from 6th class, took part in a science workshop in the library. Scientists from w5, along with the assistance of the pupils, performed many experiments. They launched a ‘teabag rocket’ to show how hot air rises and that by spinning a plastic chicken around and around demonstrates how the force of gravity pulls on the moon and the earth. These were just two of the experiments carried out. Pupils enjoyed experimenting and look forward to doing some of them in the classroom. Everyone enjoyed themselves but also learned new experiments to demonstrate science!
