Colours of the rainbow

In Ireland we get a lot of rain! After the rainfall we might see a colourful rainbow in the sky. We discussed weather, seasons, rainfall and rainbows and we learned about the seven colours of the rainbow. We used these colours to create a rainbow using crepe paper and don't they look lovely?!

Travel Week '17

Well done to all the boys and girls and to all the parents who helped out with carpooling over the past numbers of weeks and thank you to those who are continuing to carpool. We had great fun and learned a lot about the importance of carpooling during this week. Quizes and competitions were held throughout the week and well done to the winners from Rang a hAon; Ben Hegarty, Oisín Murphy and Maggie O' Keeffe.
Keep up the good work.
