The children in 5th and 6th class participated in the ZOOM project at The Hugh Lane Gallery. Here they observed and discussed a number of different artistic works. They also had the oppurtunity to make model dinosaurs and explore how green screen works.
The children from Ms O’Dowd’s, Ms Whyte’s, Ms Walshes and Ms.Sweetman’s class went to Causey Farm Co.Meath on their school tour. They certainly didn’t muck around when it came to getting into the bog!!
The children in 5th and 6th class were accompanied by Ms. Sweetman, Mr Donnelly and Ashley and particpated in the Festival of Knowledge today. A number of different STEM workshops took place in DIT Aungier St, These workshops included Augmented reality, Robotics and Arduino Automation. Everyone had a wonderful day!

With growing emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) Education, and great value on the importance of parents in their children’s education, we are thrilled to have officially opened our brand new Family Learning Room earlier this month.
The Family Learning Room was generously funded by ABC Grangegorman and is well stocked with a fantastic range of both educational and fun toys and activities that can be enjoyed by all the family, young and old.
The room was officially opened on 3rd May by Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, with special guests from ABC Grangegorman, Tusla EWS Integrated Services, parents, staff and members of the school’s community.
Families are already having lots of fun playing together every Monday and Tuesday afternoon, and this will continue until the end of the school year.
