The children from 4th class Rooms 23 & 24 have been learning with Lego WeDo 2.0 Science materials over the last few terms. They have recorded presentatons of their final projects. See how they have planned, designed, built, coded and debugged their projects.
What fantastic science & engineering skills, collaborative skills, presentation skills and coding skills they have developed!
You can also see a video of other projects they worked on.
The Annual School Dance takes place on March 11th. Tickets have sold out quickly, but as Castleknock Hotel has increased capacity, we can release more tickets. These will be available this Thursday, March 2nd, from the foyer of the Sports Hall at drop-off time.
The PTA has informed us that the cake sale in aid of UNICEF raised a staggering €4132.
Thank you to everyone who sent in cakes and donations.
We are sorry that Green Schools Week has come to a close. Everyone had lots of fun with the activities planned by Ms. G. Fay and Ms. Moriarty. The children learned about reducing waste, conserving water and keeping our school and our planet free from litter.
They especially enjoyed making the water conservation posters. Three wonderful entries are featured below.
A HUGE thanks to Ms. G. Fay and Ms. Moriarty and the Green Schools Committee for all the ideas and hard work.
Day 4 of our Green Schools Week :
Great cleaning in our yards today with our youngest litter pickers on patrol.
Pancake Tuesday is one of the BEST days in school, especially if your teacher makes you some. Yummy!
Wishing Fr. Denis the happiest of birthdays tomorrow, Wednesday, February 22nd, from all his friends in St. Brigid’s.
WHOLE CLASS LITTER PICKING
Every day this week, each class has been given litter pickers so they can go outdoors to pick up all the litter. We have noticed a lot of litter blowing into the school grounds. Today one of the older children found a crisp packet that was made before he even came to school. Thankfully our green school committee intends to continue the litter picking each week.
WALK FOR WATER
Each child will carry a water container when doing their Daily Mile. This
is to develop an appreciation of how precious water is and to raise
awareness about communities around the world who walk an
average of 6km a day to access drinking water for their families.
WALK, CYCLE or SCOOT TO SCHOOL
We encourage as many pupils as possible to walk, cycle or scoot to school on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Children could walk the last kilometre if they live too far away to walk the whole journey.
DESIGN A WATER CONSERVATION POSTER
‘Local Water Actions for Global Change”
All classes can take part and one entry from each class will be displayed on the Green School noticeboard and will be included in a national competition on March 10th
GREEN SCHOOL WEEK STORYTIME
Below we see the 5th-class pupils reading a Green School-themed story to Junior Infants. They will also visit Senior Infants and 1st Class.
Congratulations and thank you to Ms. G. Fay, Ms Moriarty and our Green School Committee for providing us with a wonderful Green Schools Week of activities. They have also been very busy picking up all the litter blowing into our schoolyard daily.
