On Tuesday 21st of June, 2nd Class were buzzing with excitement as we set off to Tayto Park. On arrival we split into our groups to take on different adventurous tasks. Some children had a very realistic view of Angry Birds in the 5d cinema, zip lined from great heights, attempted to scale the towering rock climbing wall, threaded across wires on the Sky Walk or screamed their heads off on the famous Cú Chulainn Rollercoaster. Once our adrenaline had calmed down we were ready to take a tour of the Tayto Factory and see how the famous tasty crisps are made. We couldn't believe some of the facts we learned about the classic crisp. Before heading home we had a tour around the zoo and witnessed some interesting and exotic animals Tayto Park had to offer.
On Wednesday 22nd June, Jim Callery, Environmental Officer of Wicklow Co. Council raised our 3rd Green Flag for Water Conservation. The school band taught by Emer Casey provided the entertainment in our spacious hall. Martina, Clare and Colette led the school choir once again with an amazing repertoire of songs, finishing up with "Ireland's Call". Parents' representatives, Board of Management and the Green Committee gathered in the staff room for delicious treats to celebrate this momentous occasion. Thanks to all the super staff, parents and children.
The weather couldn’t dampen our spirits on Sports Day! We were all raring to go in our teams. Teams had to complete a series of races to see which teams would be victorious in the end. A fun and entertaining day was had by all and we already cannot wait for next year’s sports day! See if you can spot yourself or your friends in action during the races.
The Junior Infants school tour took place on Friday June 17th. Our first stop was Marlay Park, where we had lots of fun on the swings, slides and climbing frames. After a small snack at the playground it was time for us get back on the bus and go to Imaginosity. Everyone really enjoyed experiencing all the different play areas in Imaginosity and we all had a great time! Thank you to Ms. Doyle, Ms Nolan and Anne who accompanied the Junior Infants and their teachers on the tour.
Senior Infants had a brilliant day at Kia Ora Farm. The weather held up and we had a great time petting and feeding alpacas, goats, deer, rabbits and many more common and unusual farm animals. We had a whirl around the farm on a fire engine. We were in our element driving tractors, manoeuvring diggers, racing go-karts and navigating our way through mazes. Our day was topped off with a tasty ice-cream. See if you can spot yourself in any of the pictures.
