Lord Mayor Kieran McCarthy visited Our Lady of Lourdes NS on Friday 8th September. The girls and staff gave him a great welcome, singing his song "Oh what a beautiful morning" as he arrivied. The Lord Mayor has a very long association with our school stretching back...
Rang a haon had so much fun learning all about volcanoes. They researched the names of volcanoes and learned a little about them, labelled diagrams, created fabulous explanation writing pieces and wrote up a science experiment, which they put all together in volcano shaped booklets they made themselves. In art they used plaster and paint to make their own volcanoes and carried out a science experiment to make that volcano explode. What a blast we had!
Rang a haon finished reading the novel ‘Flat Stanley’. They really enjoyed reading about the adventures he had so we decided to send our own Flat Stanley off to other counties and countries around the world through the post. Having some ice lollies in the sun after we posted them wasn’t bad either. He started his travels by going to a concert in Dublin which stemmed great narrative stories. There is great excitement receiving return mail, seeing the different places through Flat Stanley’s eyes, learning all about the places he visits and where they are on the map.
Best of luck to our City Sports team who will be participating in this years competition in MTU tomorrow the 1st of June. They have put a great effort into their training and will do us all very proud tomorrow.
The girls had a wonderful time planting their cress seeds and taking care of them. In doing so, they learned all about what is needed to keep plants alive and made lovely sunflower paintings highlighting those key aspects.
Hands-on experiences is at the heart of learning here in first class and the girls are having a blast using six bricks in their everyday learning. So far, the girls have delved into problem solving learned about data, doubling and halving, weight, length, height, map work, English along with fundamental, developmental skills all through using six bricks while having so much fun.
Our Lady of Lourdes N.S is 80 years old this year. To mark the very special year we have planted a sapling grown from an acorn which has come all the way from Lourdes itself.
Bhí am iontach ag na cailíní i rith seachtain na Gaeilge. Ghlac siad páirt i ndamhsa Gaelach, chruthaigh siad a seó faisin féin, rinne siad póstaeir seanfhocal, chan siad roinnt amhrán aoibhinn Gaeilge, shuigh siad siar agus d’fhéach siad ar an léiriú ‘Cochailín Dearg’ agus cláir Ghaeilge agus bhain siad taitneamh as leabhair Ghaeilge a léamh le cailíní rang a cúig. Seachtain iontach Ghaelach ar an iomlán.
