Aistear: The Farm

During the month of March Senior Infants have been learning all about ‘The Farm’ in Aistear. We started by learning about the different types of farm animals, the types of homes  they occupy and the correct names for male and female farm animals. We showed our farming skills by looking after Bert the lamb for a day!

Eggciting Stuff

unnamed (2)Senior Infants have been very busy learning about the farm. Nearly three weeks ago they put 9  eggs into an incubator. They have been minding the eggs very carefully. On the first day they put an ‘x’ and an ‘o’ on each side of they egg. This lets us know if the incubator is doing the very important job of turning the eggs. Every day we check to see if the temperature is correct and that the eggs are safe. They are due to hatch any day now! So watch this SPACE

                                           and sandwich bags from our lunches.

Let’s just use beakers for our drinks and boxes for our lunches.

Let’s be part of the Box & Beaker Club!

Peace Proms 2017


Our school choir, under the leadership of Ms. Lawler and Mrs. Bailey took part in the Peace Proms 2017, in the R.D.S. last Saturday evening.

For more than two decades now, the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland has been using the beautiful medium of music to bring together young people from all parts of Ireland, both North and South.

A fabulous evening was enjoyed by all as spectators were treated to a wide variety of songs, dance and music.

Well done to all involved, as a lot of hard work and learning of new material was involved.

We are very proud of you!

Green Schools News


Dear Parent,

We are in the process of applying for our second Green Schools Flag – the Energy Flag.

To achieve this we must retain our current flag for recycling by:

  • Ensuring we are recycling as much of our waste as we can
  • Ensuring we are recycling as well as we can

by using the REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE maxim:

REDUCE: Let’s be careful with our lunches

Beakers and (lunch) boxes are best.

Try not to use any packaging where possible:

– clingfilm and sandwich bags are not                                                                                                               recyclable

-soft wrapping e.g. popcorn bags are not                                                                                                     recyclable

-tinfoil is recyclable but do we need to use it?

REUSE: Try to reuse plastic bags, tinfoil, plastic bottles whenever we do use them

RECYCLE: clean, dry: paper, cartons, cardboard, strong plastic wrapping and bottles

Remember, recycling saves energy, key to our energy saving quest!

We will be keeping in touch, updating  and sharing energy-saving tips with you. …
