On Tuesday June 19th we held a Celebration Day in our school. We celebrated a lot including our 7th Green Flag, our 2nd Active Flag and a Blue Flag. We congratulated our under 12's football team on winning the county league. As well as this we were presented with a cheque for our school library. Finally we said goodbye to our Sixth Class students.
Thanks to Patrice Reynolds who took all these wonderful photos.

Cool Tech Exhibits:
While all that’s going on there will be a tech showcase featuring VEX Robotics, Virtual / Augmented Reality, Animation and 3D Printing. We’ll also have several guest speakers showing off their cool tech and its everyday use.
We'll have plenty of interesting guests on the day including the Irish Coast Guard who will be on site (with their rescue boat) to demonstrate how they use tech in their rescue operations.
On Friday 5th October, Olive Mooney will visit the school. She will be talking to 3rd to 6th class.

reads three chapters of the first book, 'The Book of Ornis' then the children will have an opportunity to ask her questions about the story, what it's like to be an author etc.
The first three chapters are available to read on Olive Mooneys website: thechroniclesofcadavercollege.com
