Mother’s Day Ombré Cakes


We started with 4 cakes of different colours.


Using a scone cutter, we cut out lots of sponge circles of the different colours.

We put the icing on to each sponge and stack them up.



We decorated the top of each cake with icing, little flowers and stars. They looked lovely!


We put them into small boxes with “Happy Mother’s Day”


They looked delicious!

Patrick Monahan and The Irish Wheelchair Association

Last Monday Patrick Monahan, the paralympian, and Katie from the Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) came to visit 3rd class. First of all Patrick spoke to all the 3rd classes about how he came to be a wheelchair user and what life was like as a paralympian. It was great to hear his story and he really inspired us.

After that Ms. Cully’s class, along with Patrick went to the P.E. hall, where Katie met us. She brought in some wheelchairs and we got to do some basketball wheelchair drills and then we played a match. We had the best day. We now understand how using a wheelchair is not as easy as it looks.  A huge thanks to Patrick and Katie from the IWA for coming to talk to us! Check out our photos.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from 5th Class

The three 5th classes got together to perform the following numbers for Seachtain na Gaeilge.

Tá súil againn go mbainfidh sibh taitneamh as.

FROM SALLINS: Co. Kildare.





We are starting up our walk on Wednesday campaign on 8th March. Everyone is encouraged to walk to school every Wednesday. This will reduce traffic and everyone gets a chance to exercise and get fitter. Class teachers will count how many people walk each week and the class with the highest number of walkers will get a prize of extra yard time!

Get Active Get Fit Your Body Needs It!!
