November News Update

New Classrooms. Work is nearing completion on our fantastic new classrooms. With any luck the boys should be moving into their new classrooms in two weeks time. Fingers double crossed! While the builders were in we also created a new handball area at the side of the school and is proving very popular.

Chess proved so popular with the sixth class pupils that it is nowbeing introduced to fifth class. Lessons will run in the Carlow’s finest primary schools computer room each Wednesday between now and Christmas.

Graham Kavangh Indoor soccer league  is now coming to an end as the hall will soon  be preparing for our annual Christmas concerts. It was a brilliant league with over forty boys from third class taking part

Science Week. As part of its Science week activities Holy Family BNS Askea had a visit from astronomist  Kevin Sweeney. Mr Sweeney spoke to each senior class for three one hour periods on our solar system and beyond. The boys were fascinated by these lectures and slide shows. It was a brilliant success which was reflected in the amount of questions asked. The boys in 6th class are already looking forward to Carlow IT to hear a real live American astronaut speak of his adventures.

Carlow Military Museum. Holy Family BNS would like to thank Paul Munroe, curator Carlow Military Museum, who gave the sixth class boys an excellent tour of one of the finest military museums in the country. Well worth a visit at any time.

Mathletics: Holy Family BNS has enrolled 6th class as part of the Mathletics program. This is where children go online to practice their maths with excellent computer programs and compete against children from all around Ireland and the world. Holy Family BNS’s computer room was used to introduce the 6thclass children to this fantastic maths project. It is anexcellent project andvery popular with the children.
