Lucky Jars & Golden Ticket

Lucky Jars are an essential part of our Winter Fair. They are simply jars from home, which you fill with bits and bobs you might already have : see list of suggestions at end of this page. We ask that every child prepares a jar at home and brings it to school by Wednesday 28th November. All jars are then pooled, numbered and a "Golden Ticket" in secretly put into a random jar. Whoever finds that "Lucky Jar" at the Winter Fair, gets to be Principal for a day in the new year. Even if your child doesn't find the lucky ticket, they still get a jar filled with goodies and surprises - win, win! (Suggestions at end of this page) Size: Start with an empty Jar (jam jar, mayo jar, sauce jar, etc)

5th class have the onerous task of maintaining all the pots at the front of the school. They have chosen seasonal, hardy plants which will hopefully make it through the winter in one piece! They planted heathers, purple kale, mumms, cyclamen and ivy outside. They also pruned and transplanted our beautiful geraniums back indoors and will be looking after them until the warmer weather returns. Thanks so much to the 5th Class Gardening Club under the expert guidance of Ms Jenny Kavanagh. Just LOOK at those wonderful colours! Back to Gardening Club

Redeveloping - Gardening Club

Each year, 6th class redevelops one area of the School garden. This year, they have been working on the flower bed near St. Brigid. They gave a few hours digging, dead-heading and pruning, and selected new plants for the area too! The 6th class students worked unbelievably hard and deserve much praise for their efforts as they even carted in their own shovels, spades and forks to tackle the task! The bed is almost finished and the new plants - lungwort, ornamental grasses, fuschia bushes, campanula and salvia will be soon be flowering for all to enjoy. Back to Gardening Club

Air Purifiers - Gardening Club

In November, 5th class will also be planting air purifying plants along our corridors and maintaining them by watering and pruning. Air purifying plants clean the air and even have the ability to improve concentration and creativity levels while reducing stress, fatigue, sore throats and colds! Look out for them at the entrance hall very soon! Back to Gardening Club

Plant-A-Bulb Project - Gardening Club

At the end of October, 4th class took on an immense task! They planted almost 400 bulbs all around our school grounds - a bulb for every student and staff member in the school. Snowdrops, crocuses, bluebells and hyacinths were planted along the entrance and exit of the school. While the butterfly garden has been covered in a special mix of bulbs to attract butterflies and bees into our environment. Keep an eye out for the snowdrops which were planted near the flag poles as these will be one of the first signs of Spring! Back to Gardening Club
