We had great fun at the Playground Project @ Visual today. We played in the loziworm which was created by Pestalozzi in 1972 and can now be found in playgrounds all around the world! We had great fun playing on the wave climbing frame, on the bouncy ropes and in the sand pit. We chatted about how important playing is for our bodies and brains. Then we became ‘play experts’ and created our own playgrounds using paper and recycled materials.

Debating Success

Best of luck to our school debating team. After defeating four schools in the South Leinster Section, the boys will now be debating next Friday in the semi-finals in Kilkenny Education Centre. Best of luck to the boys and their coaches Mr. Percy and Ms. McAssey. They have just been brilliant. Photo shows boys demonstrating their debating skills to the school prior to the Easter break.

Knex Challenge

We are having great fun building our Knex Smashers. Each class will be going to the hall to build their Knex models and then smash them against another lads model! The boys then go back and build a stronger model. Fantastic fun and a great time is had by all.
