Meeting Mrs. McAleese

On Thursday, November 15th Scoil Chaitríona Junior were invited to join in the 10 year celebrations of Science Week in Galway. Mrs. McAleese is the president of Ireland. She came too. Senior Infants Room 5 went to represent our school. We met Mrs. McAleese and her husband. They are really nice. They shook our hands and chatted to us. We got to make wonderful wind turbines with Dick and Anne from Rude Mechanicals and we got a present of a lovely yellow Science Week T-shirt each. It was such a great occasion. Some of us were even on Friday's Irish Times newspaper.

Our African School

Did you know? We are linked with Nyabbani school in Uganda. It's lovely having friends so far away. Here is a photo of them. We sent our first batch of letters and pictures to them this week. They will be very excited to get our letters and we can't wait to get their replies!

Mobile Farm

The mobile farm came to visit our school today. We really enjoyed the visit. We got to see Rosie the Donkey, Jasmine the Duck, Cloe the Goose,Megan the black hen, Daisy the cow and her son Bob, Babe the Pig, Rodger the Rabbit and Dolly the Sheep.
We got to see and pet all the animals and some of us even had Jasmine the duck on our shoulders or our heads when she was out for her walk.
Rosie the Donkey showed us her very brown teeth. We can see why we need to brush our teeth every day, we don't want them turning brown like Rosie's.
