School Outings

The school endeavours to take all pupils on an educational tour annually. These tours cover a wide and varied choice of venues of an educational, environmental and historical nature. We have visited Dublin, Wexford, Wicklow, Carlow & Waterford for tours over the years.

Third Time Lucky – Aladdin

Date posted: 23rd January 2011 | Category Blog, School Outings |

We got to Aladdin at last! Third time lucky with the first two attempts being foiled by snow and ice. However, it was worth the wait, a tremendous performance with the children thoroughly enjoying the ‘oh no, you don’t’ and roaring back at the actors on the stage.

It was a splendid performance. Due to the Gaiety fitting us in, we all had to sit in about 6 different places in the theatre, rather than all sitting together. Some of us were down in the parterre and some were up ‘in the gods’.

Many thanks to the Board of Management for treating us to the theatre trip and to Miss Wilson for organising it (three times!).

Carol Singing in Castlecomer Estate Yard

We all went carol singing in the Demense on 10th December. We sang many carols including ‘Away in a Manger’, Jingle Bells, Little Donkey, We wish you a Merry Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman.  We sang them all twice.

Lots of mums, dads, grans, grandads and toddlers came to hear us sing.

The owners of Jarrow Cafe gave us squash and the adults tea and coffee. We all really enjoyed it.

By Holly and Rebecca

In October we went for a lovely nature walk down in Castlecomer Discovery Park. Miss Power’s class and Miss Wilson’s class took part in this walk. We looked at all the different types of leaves and trees.

We also saw many types of nuts and berries such as acorns, holly berries and horse chestnuts.

We saw some happy ducks and geese. It was a lovely day out.
