First Year

A huge big Scoil Bernadette Welcome to our new first years who joined us this month.

They had had a wonderful 5 weeks getting to know the school, teachers and other pupils. In class they have learnt our 3 golden rules and are showing amazing IT skills with their new chromebooks. They have made brown bread and flapjacks with Ms Casserly in Home Economics and learning all about our brains in Science with Ms O Connor.

Pupils have settled in well and are a wonderful addition to our school. Watch this space for all the fun activities we do in the next few weeks

Our Trip to Ballincollig Regional park April 2021

April 30th, 1C took off to the park for a day of activity to end #activeschools week. They did the orienteering course, played soccer, practiced their frisbee skills and had great fun at the playground. We also had a lovely picnic :)

A great day out in Ballincollig

Our trip to Harper's Island

Wednesday 25th March, we travelled to Harper's Island where we had a lovely picnic and then we observed the bugs that live there and had a lovely walk in the sun. It was great to be out of the classroom and we would recommend everyone to go and take a look at Harper's Island this summer




Back in school


Now that we are back in school full time we were able to do lots of team building activities and learning away from the computer with our friends.

In English we did a movie study on WONDER. It is an amazing movie about choosing to be kind to people and how we should not judge a book by its cover. We also started a book called Noughts Forever by Malorie Blackman. It's about gangs and it is very good.

In Irish Culture we have studied THE RIVERDANCE - Their legs move very very fast says Harry who loved the show.


In SPHE we learnt about how we are connected in our class and how we have something in common with everyone. This was like a spiders web and great fun - Julie



Online learning 2021

As we return back to school fully on Monday 1st March, Mrs. Powers class spent some time reflecting on what they learnt during these strange time.

Divine - Loved the Friday activities - "The disco was great fun"

Kasey - "I really liked the 10.30am catch up with the class. We played scavenger hunts, show & tell, Bingo and had some really funny discussions like What would be your superpower or would you prefer to work indoors or outdoors :)"

The pictures below are

Siun - "I liked baking and here is my Penguin chocolate cake"

Caoimhe - Mrs. Power asked us to make some crosses using anything at home for St Bridgids Day. I used green paper to make it. It was fun

Julie - "We learnt about Fire safety in SPHE. I checked all our alarms. They were all working"

Kian - I helped my Dad with some plastering. I loved it and I liked telling my class what I did. It was hard but fun.
