Orienteering in St. Louis

Room 15 were doing orienteering in P.E.

Orienteering is using a map to find clues. They used a map of the yards to find where the clues were and as a group they had to complete their task sheet.

It was great fun!

All of the pupils came together to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge with an assembly in Halla Cullen.

Celebrating Lent in St. Louis

As we prepare for Easter this Lent we are trying to Make a Difference in St. Louis. We are Celebrating Kindness by recording some of the kind things people do for us and giving ourselves a pat on the back by recording some of the kind things we do for others too. We are also making more of an effort to notice the things in our lives that make us happy; the things we a re grateful for. We’re recording these on our Sacred Space too.

 

Some people are trying to give up sweets, technology, meat, palm oil or some bad habits this Lent. Others are taking up new routines by spending more time playing outside, with their family, doing the things they love to do and practicing their skills and talents.
