Visit to Library


As part of ‘Bookville Festival’, the children from First and Second Class visited Castlecomer Library on Thursday. They met author Tatyana Feeney and really enjoyed listening to her story ‘Socks for Mr. Wolf.’ The children helped Tatyana design new socks for Mr. Wolf. Check out our pictures form our trip by clicking the link below.

Road Safety Talk

On Thursday Fiona from the Road Safety Authority paid a visit to all classes. We learned about the importance of always wearing a seatbelt when travelling in our cars. We made a pledge to the ‘Seatbelt Sheriff’ and promised to pass this message onto our friends and family. ‘Hi Glo Silver’ reminded us to wear a high visibility jacket or belt when out walking. We also learned the Safe Cross Code.
