On the 21st of March, Ms. Phelan’s class were invited to Naas library to celebrate World Poetry Day. We were greeted by the very talented (and extremely funny) Dave Lordan. Here we were all encouraged to use our imaginations in a fun and creative way. We were given the opportunity to write and present our own poems. Dave was very inspiring and entertaining and we really enjoyed the workshop.
Bhí alán spórt agus craic againn i rith Seachtain na Gaeilge. Bhí cic agus puc fada againn Dé Cheadaoin. Bhí ceolchoirm ar siúl sa halla Dé Deardaoin agus céílí mór sa chlós Dé hAoine! Bhain gach duine, óg is aosta, an taitneamh as!
On Tuesday 11th of March 2014 the fourth classes went to the school hall to listen to a presentation about the Irish Defence Forces.
Mr. Mc Kevitt showed us a powerpoint about the Irish Defence Forces. He showed us lots of pictures about the different sections of the Irish Defence Forces. He talked about the naval service, army, overseas service, air corps, artillery and the Curragh. We learned that on May 16th 1922 the British army handed over the Curragh military base to the Irish army. If you are in the army you have to know how to do 5 things, swim, fight, serve over- seas, drive and do ceremonial work. We learned that the Irish Defence Forces travel to places that need help. We learned that they try and make peace in different countries that are at war.
We also learned that the army practise with live ammunition. They are allowed to fire one heat seeking missile a year, two if they get permission. Did you know it cost 20,000 euro per missile? We learned that the Irish army isn’t all about guns and war. It is mainly about keeping peace around the world and keeping Ireland safe. Our favourite part was when we saw a fake picture of a sheep in the Curragh dressed as a soldier.
We found the talk about the Irish Defence Forces very interesting.

Alan Nolan is a comics writer, graphic designer, artist and co-creator of the horror series Sancho. He is the creator of The Big Break Detectives Casebook, a graphic novel for younger readers, and the 'Murder Can Be Fatal' mysteries. Ms. Dunne's 3rd class and Ms. McCarville's 4th class went to Barker and Jones as part of World Book Day celebrations for a workshop with Alan. All the boys received a bookmark, postcard and their own mini comicbook which was started by Alan and could be finished at home. He showed how to draw characters and signed some copies of his books for the class.
During the year the boys wrote their own short stories in class through the writing workshop. It was a lot of hard work and they put so much time, effort and hard work into their writing.
On World Book Day they designed a cover for their own short story. They also set the classroom up in such a way that all the books were on display and it gave us a chance to read our classmates stories. Here is a picture of the class with their books!

All 6th classes went on a retreat earlier this week as part of Confirmation preparation.
The reason behind the retreat was to allow the pupils to step back and learn more about why they are continuing their journey of faith with God.
The children took part in a lot of activities throughout the retreat. First the children were asked questions and talked a little about Confirmation. Afterwards they had lunch. They were then split into three groups. One group went into a meditating room, whilst the two remaining groups went into separate rooms. When all the children had completed the activities they had lunch again.
To finish the day the two classes were split and had a prayer service. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and would like to thank everybody who arranged the retreat.
