Our planting has been very successful so far this year. We have brought home sunflowers and have planted some around the school. Keep and eye out for them as the year goes on. 

As part of the Agriaware growing challenge and Green schools we hope to plant our crops in school. More information about this very soon 🙂

Junior Infants started the Agri Aware programme today. It was great fun. We planted carrots, chives. spinach, strawberries, potatoes, lettuce  and turnips. It was really interesting to see the different seeds and to see how plants grow differently.

We planted cress, peas and spinach seeds.  We looked after them very well and made sure our plants got enough water and sunlight.  We are also enjoying learning about biodiversity.

Spring Walk

April 10th, 2016 · Comments Off on Spring Walk

Senior Infants had a great 1st week back to school. They have been learning all about Spring. On Friday the class went on a Spring Walk. By remembering their senses, the children were able to record what they saw, felt, could hear and smell on their Spring Walk.

They are looking forward to continuing this topic.

New Year New Hens!

January 7th, 2016 · Comments Off on New Year New Hens!

The St. Damian’s hens seem to have gotten into the spirit of New years resolutions as they have finally decided to start laying some eggs! There has only been a couple so far but I’m sure once they get the hang of it we will be well fed. Each class will get the chance to bring some eggs home over the weekend during the next few months and make something healthy and delicious with their fresh eggs. We will keep a track of the recipes that the children have used and post pictures if we can. All very eggciting!
