Trocaire Boxes

At KS2 Assembly this morning we watched a short video explaining the focus of this year’s Trocaire Appeal. This year’s box features photos of 3 children: Maria from Guatemala, Patricia from Uganda and Maya from Lebanon. We heard about their lives at Assembly and how we can help them by making donations over the Lenten season. Money is used to buy seeds so their families can grow food, to provide water in their schools and to help make their countries a safer place for children. Boxes have been distributed through classes to the oldest in families, we hope everyone will place their box in a prominent position and share what they have heard this morning at Assembly with their families.

World Book Day Quiz

One P6 pupil couldn’t wait to get home, to complete his World Book Day Quiz!

Good luck to all our KS2 pupils who have the quiz as homework tonight. Remember if you want to win a book of your choice, from next week’s Book Fair, submit your answers to your Google Classroom, or as your Teacher has asked you to. There will be one winner chosen from each KS2 class. Which book would you choose?

Good luck everyone!

STEM Challlenge

Congratulations to both P7 teams who took part this afternoon in the Sentinus STEM Challenge in Our Lady’s Grammar School. Teams had to work together to design and construct a vehicle which would carry an egg down a ramp and across the floor in a straight line to a marked spot. Both teams completed the challenge achieving high marks and we are delighted to announce that one team have actually made it through the heats’ stage to the final which will be held in June. Well done everyone!
