Room 11 celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite characters.

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.

On Wednesday 23rd May Ms Whelan’s class held their own class olympic games. The children worked together in groups representing different countries and participated in a number of activities including sprints, relays, hurdles, javelin throwing and the long jump. The girls really enjoyed their day and are now eagerly awaiting the games this summer.

The girls in Mrs.White’s and Ms. Whelan’s class were invited to attend a soup kitchen in the yard of the Drogheda Borough Council last Thursday. This was one of many events organised in the town to commemorate the Great Famine. Mary Kennedy, presenter of Nationwide, was also in attendance. Grace Callan from Mrs.White’s class read an extract from the novel Under the Hawthorn Tree by Marita Conlon-McKenna. Tune in to Nationwide on RTE1 tomorrow to see this event.

Last November the pupils in Mrs.White’s class, Ms.Whelan’s class and Ms. McHugh/Ms.Mullin’s class participated in the MS Readathon. A total of €2495 was raised for this worthy charity. The funds raised are used for services for those living with Multiple Sclerosis in Ireland. The girls read a huge number of books during the 4 week period. We would like to thank those who sponsored our pupils so generously.

Congratulations to Sarah Perez in Mrs.White’s class who was a winner of the MS Readathon Special Achiever’s prize and she received a certificate and a number of books.

On Friday 20th January Miss Whelan’s fifth class went to the Droichead Arts Centre to participate in an art workshop held by Artist Claire Halpin. The girls got the opportunity to view some of Claire’s work and to make their own creations which are now on display in the school.

The girls from rooms 11, 13, 15 and 18 spent time this week in the Droichead Arts Centre at an exhibition by artist Claire Halpin. While they were there they viewed her work and also spent time creating their own artwork with Claire’s help.
