The boys in Rang a Cúig have had a very busy start to the term. They have completed a block of gymnastics lessons as well as a few weeks of GAA training. They welcomed back three past pupils who have won minor and u20 All Ireland medals with Cork. There was great excitement when the boys wore pink to school and ran 5km in the yard in support of Breast Cancer Ireland.
The boys have been making great use of our class laptops and iPads for typing, research and their new Spellings for Me programme. As part of the Children’s Book Festival, the class had very interesting zoom calls with authors David Walliams and Melissa Shiels.
One of the most exciting activities was becoming part of the Bodhrán Bookills, with some excellent socially-distanced peer tutoring from the pupils of 6th Class.
Well done to the 7 boys who won Principal’s Awards during the first few months.
