Sallins National School

A blog by students…for students!

Sixth class school tour.

On Thursday 28th May all of the sixth classes went to The Crystal Maze which was on the Cavan/Meath border. The maze was really good. There were riddles and obstacles and a river that we were able to swim in at the end! Sadly, that was our last school tour in Sallins N.S.

Planting Potatoes

Mr Kelly’s fourth class  planted potatoes. They started by getting bottles to put soil into and then sowed the potatoes. You then put soil on top of the potatoes and it should start growing in a few weeks. If you are lucky the potato should start sprouting. You must watch them carefully!  If you see black spots on the leaves, you have potato blight and that would be the end of your potatoes!!

Girls Gaelic final

On Tuesday the 26th of May our girls Gaelic team went to Moorefield to play the final. They played Gael Scoil Chill Dara. Sallins started the match with a goal in the first few minutes. Sallins scored the majority of the scores in the first half. At half time it was 2-4 to 0-2. In the second half it was much more difficult for Sallins because the wind was not in our favour. After that Gael Scoil scored 1-2 but Sallins came out on top scoring  2-2 in the second half. The final score was Sallins 4-6 – Gael Scoil Chill Dara 1-4.
