We held our annual Bring & Buy Sale in aid of St. Vincent de Paul on Thursday 7th December. The children really enjoyed the day and raised just over €570. Well done and thanks to everyone who contributed to such a worthy cause.
The pupils in 5th and 6th Classes worked in groups and created four new business ideas. They worked on all areas associated with a business, such as advertising, finance and production. They then had to pitch their businesses, Dragons’ Den style, to two dragons, looking for investment. This was a very interesting and worthwhile experience which encouraged teamwork and entrepreneurship. Thanks to Nadia from Bizworld for all her work and guidance over the two days. Thanks also to Darren from Bank of Ireland and Mr. Maher for being very good dragons.
We are practising using money in our class.
Well done to the children and parents in 1st and 2nd Classes for creating wonderful musical instruments using recycled materials.
We used junk to make musical instruments.
Junior Infants to 2nd Class had their first of four golf lessons with professional Brian McCormack. They had good fun learning about putting this week.
They worked on improving their balance, posture and motor control.
Junior Infants have been busy lately, creating some lovely art work. It must be feeling pretty cold in their room!
Mrs. Kearns has started her guitar lessons with children in 5th and 6th.
We have been learning about Space in Geography. We have created Powerpoint presentations using our tablets. See Muireann, Rihanna and Adam’s here.
In Art we drew pictures of Space using pastels.
Marvin and his Magic Recycling show came to Geashill NS this morning. All classes enjoyed learning about Reducing, Reusing and Recycling in a fun way. Thanks to Offaly County Council for funding this initiative. This is part of our continued work towards our 6th Green Flag.
