Busy at Maths in Junior Infants
Senior Infant School Tour 2017
The Hollies is a centre for training in Practical Sustainability on about 30 acres near Enniskeane, in West Cork, Ireland. It is owned by An Baile Dulra Teoranta, a company with charitable status for the eduational work it promotes. It aims to create working examples of what a sustainable society might look like in the areas of housing, energy, gardening, economics and community development.
Since 1999 they have been developing educational programs and putting in place examples of various natural building techniques. The Hollies is particularly known as the prime place for the revival of cob building in Ireland.
Mrs Groarke and Senior Infants visited the Hollies recently and had a wonderful day.

Science Rising 2016
Science, science everywhere or so it seemed in Junior and Senior Infants this week. We investigated, we tested, we measured, we recorded, we demonstrated, we learned and we had such fun!!!
Senior Infants had great fun with Air and Moving Air during Science Week. Experiments were carried out to move various materials using air. We made fans to move objects and to experience air moving. On Friday we did a Show and Tell in the Halla for other classes and Teachers. Much fun was had playing “Air football” and making blowing bubbles which the wind carried off. Science at its best.
School Tour 2016.
Mrs. Groarke organised a wonderful experience for Senior Infants. A Teddy Bear’s Picnic. Everyone had so much fun. Thank you Mrs. Groarke. Here are some memories of our day. Hope you enjoy them.
Senior Infants were inspired by the story “Fun on Friday” in their class reader to recycle boxes for their own “Fun on Friday”
They spent two weeks gathering boxes and making plans. With the help of their parents, brothers and sisters they made wonderful creations.
On Friday the 29th of April they displayed their “Boxes” in the Halla . Senior Infants made presentations to Junior Infants, First Class and Second Class. Each child spoke eloquently about their creation.
All agreed that we had “Fantastic Fun on Friday”
Well done all!!!
