It is hard to believe that today is the last of our 3 week summer camp. We have had so much fun and learnt a lot!
A special thanks this week to Michaela from Sentinus who helped us make our own space rockets which we launched; to Aoife Garvey who presented us all with Certificates of Achievement for our drumming progress; to Vanessa from the AmmA Centre who taught us about animation and we made our own movies; to Kathleen from An Tobar who helped us brighten our school and homes with beautiful flowers and to Sinead who gave us another wonderful art class today! The pictures are fantastic.
Thank you to all the parents for their support over the past three weeks and we hope that the children have enjoyed the last 3 weeks! We also hope that everyone enjoys their summer and stays safe!!

As we enter our final week of summer camp, here are some snap shots of our brilliant second week. We were so lucky with the weather each day!
A special thank you to Aoife with the African drums and Kathleen from An Tobhar. The children learnt so much and really enjoyed the activities. We also had many games in the pitch and art outside. We finished the week off at the football pitch with football matches and rounders.
Great week had by all!
Week 1 of our summer camp is complete and what a week it was! The happy faces in these pictures say it all. Everyone had so much fun and lots of brilliant memories were made this week for all involved. We hope next week is just as great.
A special thank you to Aoife Garvey with the African drums, Niall from the AmmA Centre teaching about “Sound Maps” and the art teacher Sinead Campbell of “The Art and Design Factory.” Your workshops were brilliant and we are so thankful.

What an exciting morning for P6 and P6/7 classes yesterday when they took delivery of their “Lab in a Box”. Dr Caroline and Dr. Suzanne from DKIT Dundalk, led our classes “virtually” through a morning of Science exploration, where they learned all about H2O and healthy water indicators.
As scientists and researchers Dr Caroline and Dr Suzanne sample river water and identify levels of pollution from the numbers of “good” and “bad” macro-invertebrates present. P6 and P6/7 had the opportunity to investigate a river water sample, find and identify the “goodies” mayfly, stonefly and caddisfly, and then they even got to see some caddisfly larva emerge from their cases!
A huge thank you to Therese at the Ring of Gullion for including us in this project, it was an exciting morning and we are all now H2O heroes!
Check out these action shots from P6 Sports yesterday afternoon! Lots of drama with potatoes falling off spoons in the last few metres and bean bags flying in all directions in the long distance throws, but … a BIG well done to everyone for taking part and joining in the fun in good spirit!
