Fishing for frogs!

This week we got to study some tadpoles in the science lab with Grace. We noticed that some of them were starting to grow legs! After that, we went outside to our pond and tried to catch some frogs. Michael managed to catch 3 frogs!!!  


Michael and Ross worked together to catch the first frog! 

Debate Club

Our Debate team had a great win before Christmas against Holy Rosary NS, Wicklow Town.

The three girls did our school very proud. Here are some pictures of them in action...

This term we are preparing the other members of the club for their debut debate with the topic of racism. The group are working hard getting their speeches ready in time to show case the debate to some of the senior classes in the school in February.

After Mid Term we will be inviting Holy Rosary back to St Fergal's for another debate. 

Christmas Plays

Over the next two weeks we have wonderful plays going on to celebrate Christmas.

We would love for you to come and see the plays and cheer on your child.

This Wednesday 14th at 12pm, Junior Infants will have their play altogether in the Junior Building hall.

 On Tuesday 20th at 9.30 the Early Start groups are putting on their concerts in their classrooms. All children must be in by 9.15am.

Also on Tuesday 20th at 1pm the 1st class children will put on their Christmas play in the Junior Building hall.

On the 21st December the whole school community is invited to St. Fergal's church to watch the Junior production of Busy Bethlehem performed by 1st, 2nd and 3rd class. This will take place at 11am.

Later that same day the Senior children from 4th, 5th and 6th class will perform Hosanna Rock at 1pm. Ms.Connolly's class will be the actors.

Please come and join us for the festivities.

Debate Club

Our 6th Class Debate club takes place every Tuesday after school from 2:30 -3:30pm. We discuss a range of issues that affect the students' lives as well as current affairs. Topics can vary from new school uniforms to the presidential election in the US.

We have great fun arguing with each other.

The team will be taking on Holy Rosary NS in Wicklow Town next Tuesday 13th December. The current topic is quite lighthearted in keeping with the time of year.

The motion is: "Scrooge is a better role model than Santa". Our team are opposing this motion so our three speakers have worked hard on their speeches to make sure that once they're finished speaking, everyone will agree that Santa Claus is a much better role model than Scrooge. 

Hopefully the judges will be persuaded enough to give our team the win!

Watch this space for pictures and results on the day!

And don't forget to wish Avamay, Aoife and Laura the best of luck!
