After School Coding.

Mr. Percy is running  after school computer programming classes every Tuesday. The program the children are using is an offline version of Scratch, which is a programming suite for children. This is an excellent initiative from Mr. Percy that is very well supported by the children. All twenty five computers in the school’s computer room are being used!
Later in the year Mr. Percy will  be progressing with the children to program robots using Mindstorm software. Happy coding!

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

Teddy Bear’s Picnic: The Home School Community Liasion (HSCL) teacher organised a Teddy Bear’s Picnic with the Junior Infant classes and their parents. The parents were invited into the school on Friday afternoon. All the boys brought in a teddy bear and a blanket to sit on. All the boys, their teddy bears and their parents enjoyed a picnic while reading a Julia Donaldson book. The boys received a present of the book at the end of the picnic. Lots of fun was had.
