Pupils had great fun using the Bee Bots. These programmable floor robots are designed to teach children about directional language and computer programming in an enjoyable way. Pupils combined their STEM skills in this initiative.

We have made a huge investment in ICT with the purchase of Chromebooks for our pupils. Each week, pupils are engaged in technology centred learning where they develop new skills and complete some work in digital format. Pupils are learning to create & edit documents and work on projects using the Chromebooks.

We have collected 77 gift filled shoeboxes for the Team Hope annual Christmas appeal. Sincere thanks to the children and their families for their generosity to this worthy cause.

 

On Monday 20th June we had our annual sports day. Children took part in several activities including archery, taekwondo, zumba, tug-o-war & the traditional team competitions. They were presented with medals on the day and there was a special surprise visit from the ice-cream van. Sincere thanks to the parents council for their sponsorship of the event.

The 3rd & 4th class 'Rearing Macy for Milford' fundraiser culminated in a trip to O'Donovan's Mart in Tipperary on Friday 27th May. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all children and was a huge success. Thanks to Hynan's Bus for providing transport, to local cattle haulier Mike Butler & to Supermac's for sponsoring ice-creams. A special mention to the O'Donovan family for their warm welcome & generous contribution of €200 towards the fundraiser along with goodie bags for the children. There was a very well supported school gate collection and bucket collection at the mart. These donations on top of the fantastic selling price of €1710 allowed us to present Milford Hospice with a cheque for €3230.61. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone involved but in particular the 28 children in 3rd & 4th class for their dedication to the fundraiser. Mr. Ryan.      See some more photos in the gallery.
