Walking on Air
When an individual puts his/her whole weight on one balloon, all of the pressure from that individual is concentrated on one small area of the balloon, which results in the balloon bursting.
When an individual’s weight is distributed over several balloons, the balloons do not burst because the pressure is spread over a large area. As a result, each balloon only supports a small fraction of the weight.
The children in 5th and 6th class have been very busy this week preparing treats for their Halloween celebrations. Well done to all involved!
Hello 5th and 6th class,
Congratulations once again to all of you for participating in St. Gabriel’s first ever ART WEEK! You all did a wonderful job. I can’t wait to hear the results of the Art Competition. It’s going to be very hard for Ms.Hanlon, Ms.Condron and Ms. Fitzpatrick to pick a winner.
This week it is Poetry Week. Usually we would all be in the hall listening to and enjoying the different poems we have written. Mrs. McGarrity, our annual guest of honour, would also be reading a poem to us all. However, this year, Ms O’Leary and Ms. O’Loughlin have been very busy organising different activities for you to do to make sure that you dont miss out! They have been saved to your Poetry Week Journal on See Saw. I have no doubt that you will really enjoy them.
Enjoy your last full week in school. I miss you all very very much !
