Mini All Ireland

Two children from each class have been picked to represent counties in the St. Fergal’s Mini All Ireland. From our class, Dylan was playing for Kildare and Steven played for Wicklow. Wicklow were victorious so Steven will go on to play in the semi final tomorrow. Both boys played very well and had lots of support from the rest of our class! 

School Tour

School Tour

We had a brilliant day on our school tour to Glenroe Farm and Zoom. Thank you to all the parents who came along and helped out on the day. A huge amount of planning and preparation went into making the day a success and I’m delighted that the boys and girls had such a lovely time on their JI school tour! We are lucky to have so many great amenities on our doorstep in Wicklow. Take a look at some photos of the day below: 



Over the next couple of weeks I will gradually send home completed books and work belonging to the children. Yesterday I sent home the Grow in Love workbook. You can keep it at home. 

I will also be sending home the maths books, the handwriting book, the scrapbook and a variety of worksheets.

You may want to complete any pages in the book which your child has missed. 

All for now.

Planting & Our School Garden

Great news: Our pumpkin seeds have started to sprout, if all goes according to plan St. Fergal’s will be well supplied with pumpkins for Halloween 2017🎃

Look carefully and you can see the husk of the pumpkin seed still attached to the top of the plant! 

We’re still waiting for our marigolds to make an appearance but our cress seeds are doing well. They’ll be going home with the children soon!

Our school garden has been transformed by  Joe, our caretaker, and lots of other volunteers and helpers. It looks fantastic and was constructed using lots of recycled materials. We were entered into a competition for school gardens in the Bray area and were awarded a prize! It’s going to be a great resource for everyone in our school! Take a look at some photos below:
