On Thursday May 26th we all enjoyed a great day out in Dublin. We went on a Viking Splash Tour around the city and on the water in the morning.

Take a look at all the fun we had!

In the afternoon we visited Croke Park. We saw the changing rooms, corporate boxes, players lounge and went up into the stands.

Finally we visited the museum and interactive games where we were able to test our skills!

September in the Senior Room

Date posted: 3rd October 2014 | Category Blog, English, Geography, Hurling, Science, Senior Classroom, Visual Arts |

It has been a busy start to the year for the senior classes and we’ve completed lots of work in different subjects. Take a look and see what we’ve been up to!

In geography and science we studied buildings and the materials used to construct them. In art class we made these city skylines including some of the different buildings we’d looked at.


In science we also studied different plants and seed dispersal. We looked at the life cycle of plants and labelled plant and flower parts.

4th Class read the poem Autumn Time and created these beautiful storyboards showing what happens in each verse.

In art we made colourful autumn trees using yellow, orange and red paint. We printed the leaves using cotton buds!

We also celebrated Kilkenny winning the All Ireland and we were delighted to receive a visit from some of the Junior and Senior hurlers and all the silverware they won this year!!

On Thursday, 4th October, Wandesforde School was very privileged to have members of the Kilkenny Hurling Team visit our school.

It was an eventful day as all the children cheered on Kilkenny and waved their flags whilst wearing Vintage Clothing for our Bishop’s Charity Tour! The photographs below are proof of how delighted the children were to meet the players and of course, hold the Liam McCarthy Cup!!

A big thank you to the Kilkenny Hurling Team for taking time out of their busy schedule to visit us all at Wandesforde School!
