Maths Week in Holy Family School

Category : Post Primary

What a magical Mathematical week in the Holy Family School. Teachers and SNAs has organised a cross curricular learning with an emphasis on exploring maths. We had Maths Trails, Maths Investigations, Maths Puzzles, and Maths exploring with other subjects. For example in Geography we had an activity where you had to match the heights to famous mountains and lengths to well-know rivers. In Home Economics we had to estimate the weight of a very large and heavy Pumpkin! We took pride in playing with the new handmade wooden mathematical puzzles that our new woodwork teacher Niall created with his students for our enjoyment with Maths. Students and Staff had great fun! Happy Maths Week Everybody! #Mathsweek2019 #IuseMaths

“Grow, Cook & Eat”

Category : Post Primary

Students in 6C have being working very hard with Mr. Dempsey growing vegetables in our garden and greenhouse.  It was an amazing sight to come back after the summer and see the greenhouse brimming with tomatoes, some sweetcorn and rhubarb.  Students picked the juicy vegetables and fruit and then brought them to the kitchen to use in their cookery class.  Students made succulent Italian bruschetta and left nothing for anyone to taste.  With the rhubarb they make sweet rhubarb muffins which they shared with their teachers.  We can’t wait to see what else they will produce for us to cook in the kitchen.

Coffee Morning in aid of Breast Cancer

Well done to classes 4A/4B and 6C and their teachers Shirley Higgins and Shirley Wolverson for organising a coffee morning in aid of Breast Cancer. The students made lemon drizzle cake, banana cake, apple slice, mars bar Krispies, rocky road, malteaser bars, biscuit cake and the smell along the school corridors was just divine! They raised a fantastic €285!! Shirley would like to say a big thank you to Shirley, Suzanne, and Phil for all their help and to everyone who bought cakes on the day.

First Years at the National Concert Hall

Today, 1 A, B & C Class, teachers Mr.Canning, Ms.Owens, and Carmel & Derval visited the National Concert Hall to see ‘The Bluebell Project – Sometimes the Signal Jumps’. Special thanks to Brian Fleming from Dublin Culture Connects for inviting us to this moving performance which was also translated into ISL. We got to see a group from the Bluebell Project performed on stage with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.
This was followed with a lovely stroll through St.Stephan’s Green on a beautiful sun shining day where the students got to feed the birds. A little birdie told us they had great fun!
