Pinocchio Pantomime

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009
Everyone in the school got to see a wonderful pantomime in school today. A theatre company came to the school to show us their version of Pinocchio. It was fantastic. We got to join in the fun, and some of us even got a chance to be on stage.

Hallowe'en Walk

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

We had our Hallowe'en walk today. Most of the children and teachers in the school dressed up in fancy dress clothes. Our walk is a sponsored walk - it is not too far but it is great fun. We hope we didn't scare anyone going by. A huge "Thank You" to all who participated, made costumes, got children dressed up, and especially to all who sponsored us in today's walk,

Award for Scoil Chaitríona Junior

Monday, 28th September, 2009

We are thrilled to have a won the 2009 Greenwave Photograph Award for 2009, with our photo of frogs in frogspawn. Today we were pleased and honoured to have Éanna Ní Lamhna from Greenwave, Oonagh Meeghan from Discover Science and Engineering, and Andrew the photographer, all the way from Dublin to present us with our prize. We won a tripod, a camera case, and a video camera which we will use to take lots of video footage of our science work, and other exciting events in our school. Both Oonagh and Éanna talked to us about science and being scientists. They were so interesting. Well done to all the students and teachers who watch the buds, birds and frogs in spring and who take part in the Greenwave programme each year.
