Today we visited the wonderful Airfield Farm in Dundrum for our school tour.
We saw cows, sheep, pigs, donkeys and chickens. We saw the cows being milked and even got to taste the fresh milk. We also petted the goats. Everyone visited the chicken coop and held some fresh eggs.

Senior infants have been learning how to care for their teeth. We have discovered what foods we can avoid, in order to help stop the ‘acid monster’ in his tracks. We also understand what foods can help keep our teeth healthy for the tooth fairy. At our Aistear stations, we enjoyed dramatising a visit to the dentist. Naomi from the might mouth programme heard about how well we were taking care of our teeth. She awarded us with certificates and we gave her a rendition of the winning smile rap.
First Class brought their handmade fairy houses out to the garden today. They explored the garden to find just the right spots for their fairies! As you can see the garden is very pretty and we’re sure the fairies will happily settle into their new homes.
We are looking forward to welcoming the parents of our new Junior Infants to the school next week. If your daughter is enrolled to start in our school in September, but you haven’t received your text message with details of the meeting, please contact the school immediately on (01) 8680115.
Junior Infants spent a very enjoyable morning making fairies and fairy houses for our brand new school Fairy Garden! The fairies will be moving into their new homes really soon.

The girls had great fun decorating pancakes to celebrate Pancake Tuesday. We added a variety of toppings including strawberries, lemon juice and chocolate spread to create a tasty treat!
In order to promote the enjoyment of reading and story- telling, the children engaged in a ‘Book at Bedtime’ which was organised by the Home School Liaison teacher, Ms. Vahey. The children chose two books per week which allowed them to sit down with their families at home and enjoy a story. It was a great success and all of the girls received a certificate to celebrate their reading.
