Project Work

1st and 2nd Class created projects about nocturnal animals. They learned many interesting facts about their nocturnal animal and worked hard to record their information using their knowledge of report writing. The children then worked with their group to present their information as a poster and then present it orally to the class. They did a fantastic job!

Art Club

Art Club resumed this week for the children of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class. The children were working on the areas of paint, colour and printing. They created a heart just in time for Valentines!

Family Day

We were delighted to welcome so many family members to school on Thursday as part of Catholic Schools Week. It was a really special day and the children were so proud to show their family members their classroom and their work in school. For the teachers it was a great opportunity to meet those we hear so much about. Thank you.
