Basketball School League

Below are our boys’ and girls’ teams who competed in the finals of the 3rd/4th classes’ in-school basketball league.

The last few weeks have been quite busy as sixteen different teams participated in the  league.

Well done to all who took part, in particular our captains and vice-captains who showed great leadership and industry. We saw some great competitive games and camaraderie.

Looking forward to it all next year!

From caterpillar to butterfly

Four butterflies arrived earlier than planned on Monday. We were lucky enough to watch one coming out on Tuesday.The remainder have come out of their chrysalis over the last few days.  The boys and girls are very excited and love watching the butterflies put their proboscis into the fruit to drink the juice.

Caterpillar update

Last Thursday we had our first caterpillar in its chrysalis and the remainder were hanging upside down, getting ready. Since then all the caterpillars are in their chrysalis and Senior Infants and First class took a closer look today before they went into the net. We particularly like the golden marks.

Miss Daly’s Senior Infants and First Class are learning about the life cycle of the butterfly. On the 27th of April, 10 caterpillars arrived. Since then they have doubled in size and we are waiting for them to go into their chrysalis some time this week.
