The boys and girls in Room 1 were busy working on their ball handling skills in PE this week. Each PE station involved team work and we all tried so hard to help and encourage our friends!
Sixth class pupils have had the wonderful privilege of being taught a series of boxing lessons by Olympic gold Medalist Michael Carruth. The lessons focused on skill and fitness development and have been taking place every Tuesday and Thursday morning. All students took part in the Bronze programme; Michael and his brother Martin selected students from this group to continue to the Silver programme in Drimnagh boxing club. Finalists will be selected from this group to take part in the Gold Programme in the National Stadium where boxing greats like Katie Taylor and Kenny Egan train.
Huge Congratulations to all involved.
Room 1 had a wonderful time learning about ‘Scratch Programming’ in the computer room with Mr. Roche and the pupils from Room 12. We learned all about how to choose and design our own characters and backgrounds. We were also very excited to see some of the 4th class finished projects. These projects were so creative and really inspired 2nd class!
