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.

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

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.
