Trip to Paris

Category : Post Primary

Transition Years had a wonderful trip to Paris where they got to go and see many great places. They visited the Deaf café, Aquaboulevard (Waterpark), the Lourve (Art Museum) , the Science Museum , Montparnasse Tower, Trocadero, Arc deTrionphe, Champs-Elysees, Sacre-Coeur, Montmartre, Place de la Concorde and they even got to go to Disneyland! Other highlights included visiting the 1000 Signs Cafe which is a owned by a deaf owner and all the staff there are deaf. We also had amazing coffee there! When we were at Trocadero two of our students Japhet & Angelo got to dance with celebrity dancer Salif Guey who danced on the Ellen Show. In the Lourve our tour guide was a french deaf man and he used international sign language as he brought us on our tour. We really enjoyed the tour, he brought the art in the Louvre Museum to life. This was an amazing trip – a trip of a lifetime.

Community Sports Day

Category : Post Primary

By Donnchadh O’Connell

On Thursday, we walked to the Community Garda Sports Day. When we arrived, we were greeted by two Guards on their friendly, cute police horses. We stood in front of the horses to get a picture. We were in groups with different schools. The other students were very nice and even knew a small bit of sign language. We were asked to line up in front of the Garda. While we were lined up, the Garda politely showed us his Garda badge. They were very kind and really tall.

Then we did some exercises to warm up. We did jumping jacks and windmills. Then, we proceeded to 12 different stations which were really fun. My favourite station was an obstacle course in which you need to jump over some hurdles, run in between some cones and run back to your teammates all while wielding a big rubber ring. Then, we sat down on the soft grass and ate our delicious lunches in peace. At the end of the event, the teachers played the game tug of war with the Gardai. Then, the Gardai politely handed out some Gardai Na Shiochana medals. After that, we were exhausted and walked back to school.

ESB SCIENCE BLAST

Category : Post Primary

Year 4 had a wonderful day at the ESB Science Blast on Thursday. The ESB Science Blast aims to promote curiosity and critical thinking in children at primary school age to enable them to better respond to the challenges of the future.

The children were afforded the opportunity to showcase their science project, “Where is Home Sweet Home for a Bug?” They received excellent feedback from the judges who acknowledged the children’s hard work.

The children met with peers from all over Ireland who informed them about the findings of their science investigations. Additionally, the children attended interesting science shows, including a science rapper. A great day was had by all!

Sports Day 2019!

Category : Post Primary

The rain stayed away for Sports Day at Holy Family School for the Deaf. We had a very active day with races in the morning followed by Yoga and Orienteering! The day finished off with school leavers versus the other students football matches. The school leavers were not impressed that the other students won!

The main message for sports day was “Doing your best is better than being the best”. Well done to all for taking part. A big thank you to all the staff and to MJ for making the Sport Day 2019 so successful!

Creativity at Holy Family

Category : Post Primary

First years students (1A & 1B) created a beautiful floral artwork as part of the ‘Artist in the Classroom’ initiative for JCSP. John Canning organised for local artist Deirdre O Reilly to come to the Holy Family School to do an Art Workshop with our students. This was a wonderful and creative initiative. It was also a very much welcomed initiative that helped the students to destress after the summer exams. #Artinitiative #Amazingart #ArtistDeirdreOReilly #creative #destressingafterexams #jcsp #Art
