On Nov 11th we marked Polish Independence Day. Ewelina Pasinska came in to talk to the classes from 1st – 6th . We learned about Polish culture and language. We also learned about places in Poland and how they are unique. We also learned about Polish food (such as Pierogi, Rosol, Placki, Ziemniak). She showed us a PowerPoint on Poland which explained their traditional dance, music and national anthem. She showed us the size of Poland and how long it takes to go from Ireland to Poland by car. It takes roughly 36 hours with breaks. It was really enjoyable for us.

On Wed 9th of November, we went to Cusack Park to play the school’s football final. Our opponents were Kildysart N.S. It was a really tight and exciting 1st half. At half-time, the score was 3 points to 1 with Kidysart leading. We did lead at one stage in the 2nd half but unfortunately for us, Kildysart finished strongly and won the match. Despite losing we loved playing in Cusack Park and had an enjoyable day
4th /5th and 6th classes took part in this project. We could work individually or in groups of up to 4 people. We had to come up with a science project of our choice and investigate that topic. On Wed 26th Oct we displayed and explained our projects to all the other classes in the school. They really enjoyed viewing our projects. On Thurs 27th Oct judges from Intel in Shannon came in to judge our projects. They looked at all the projects in great detail and the overall winners were Jack O’ Driscoll and Mark Reynolds from 4th class with their project called “ How to generate electricity for our new school using playground equipment and food waste”. They will now go on to represent the school at the regional final in Intel Shannon on Nov 30th
