We also collected herbs from the sensory garden to make bouquet garni. Our potatoes are growing so well in the bins. See us at work in the GALLERY of the Garden!

Try them at home.

You need:

DEBATING TRIP TO MAYNOOTH UNIVERSITY

On the 10th of February the debating team (Orla, Sophie, Gillian, Conor, Ailbhe and Bernard) went to Maynooth University to watch the debating final. When we first arrived the hall was not available so we got a tour of the university first. After about half an hour we went to the Aula Maxima where the debating would commence.

The first debate was the plate final. The topic was ‘Should child labour be a necessity in developing countries’. The opposing team won this debate. The second debate was the cup final also on this topic. The proposing team won this debate. It was a very tight debate and both the teams had brilliant points. After the debate we were presented a certificate for our school and individually.

It was a great day and a good learning experience for the whole team!

What’s Happening At Garden Club? 10th May 2017. Take a Look!

THE GARDEN CLUB!

WEDNESDAY 10th MAY 2017

Hello again!

Today we planted peas in ‘Half Pipe Flower Beds’!

 

We collected summer garden colour swatches!

 

We went walking in our school garden and looked at all the planting and growing! We checked how our potatoes, tepee-peas and mangetout are doing. We saw that lots more planting is going on at school every day…… strawberries and sunflowers!

We checked out the poly-tunnel and can see that the plants are growing so quickly in the heat! 

WAY TO GROW SALLINS!

The Garden Club: Peas & Tepees!

On Wednesday 3rd May, The Garden Club made tepees from garden canes, and planted out the pea and mangetout seedlings that we started with on our first garden gathering.

First we built the tepee! Six sticks standing strong! Tied together at the tips!

Tie twine tightly to the tepee from the base to the top! Like a web.

Dig planting holes at the base of each tepee stick and plant the pea and mangetout seedlings, biodegradable pots and all.

Make sure the seedlings are settled and secure in the soil. Now water them!

Job well done! Now we will care for them and watch them grow!

Cross Country – History in the Making!

Our cross country teams made school history at the County Kildare Cross Country Championship on 6th April when they took home their first ever team medals at this event.

 

The boys race was first and two teams represented the school against over 150 boys from across the county. They all ran a fantastic race. The boys ‘A’ team came first overall and got our first ever cup in this event.

The girls race was up next and they ran against over 150 girls in a very competitive race. They did great as well with the girls ‘A’ team coming in second place overall. 3 of our girls even came in the top ten!

Well done to all of the boys and girls who took part, as well as those who were injured and who trained for the event but weren’t there on the day. St. Laurence’s Abú!
