Liam McCarthy visits Crumlin!!!

There was great excitement in our school when Galway players Brian and Paul Flaherty brought the Liam McCarthy along with the Bob O’Keefe, Irish Press and National League Cups to our school. It was a great visit and huge thanks to all involved for organising the special occasion. The players were happy to answer all the children’s questions and sign lots of hurls, jerseys and sliotars! Let’s hope we’ll see Liam again many more times in our school!

Visitor from Brigid’s Garden

On Thursday the 5th of October, Will Softly (in association with SEAI) visited us from Brigid’s Garden and held workshops with Senior Infants, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Will informed the students of the various renewable and non-renewable sources of energy and had lots of fun with the pupils through games, puppets and dress-up. He gave us some great energy saving tips.

Will also demonstrated how chemical energy can be converted into electrical energy using apples!

Thanks Will for a great day!

Christmas Play

Welcome back after the Christmas break.  We hope you had a happy Christmas.  Before the school finished up, Junior Infants to Second Class held a very successful concert ‘The Xmas Factor’.  All the students worked extremely hard in the lead up to the play and it showed on the day.  All of the classes performed their songs/poems brilliantly.  The judges showed off their acting skills with great gusto.  It proved to be a very successful and funny play, which children, teachers and parents enjoyed.  We would also like to say a special thank you to the Parent’s Association for organizing the raffle, raffle prizes and doing the coffee and tea.

Here are a few pictures of our show.  Enjoy:-)
