The standard of the Genius Hour projects was phenomenally high. The boys made excellent models to go with their research projects which illustrated their imaginative skills and artistic talent. We all learned from each other this week during these wonderful presentations. Thanks to those Mams and Dads out there who helped out in any way, especially those who taught their sons how to reference their information sources. Very impressive work! Some of these boys are almost ready to cross the road and study in UCC!
As well as gymnastics and G.A.A. skills, Rang a trí enjoyed 8 weeks of basketball skills before mid term. They practised skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting as well as having lots of fun. Huge thanks to St. Joe’s parent Ronan for giving up his time and sharing his expertise!
It has been a great start to our 1st class year. We had lots of fun in the lead up to our midterm. Here is a little update of what we have been up to!
At the beginning of October, we planted a tree for National Tree Day.
We have been learning about Cork, so we went on a walk near St. Joes and visited UCC.
We had so much fun carving homegrown pumpkins!
We dressed up for Halloween and played some Halloween games!
We’re looking forward to the next few months 😊
Thank you to all those who contributed to the Mercy Heroes collection last Friday. The hospital was delighted with the contribution which will go towards the cost of mobile equipment for chemo treatment for children with leukemia.
