    First Class Irish

    Obair iontach ar súil i Rang a hAon leis an Gaeilge. Féach ar na dánta agus na scéalta atá le scríobh acu! Comhghairdeas le Lucy, Michelle agus Meabh i Seomra 12. Chum Lucy an dán "An Aimsir", chum Michelle an dán "An Samhradh" agus scríobh Meabh scéal faoi beirt bhuachaillí. Maith sibh a cháiliní!

  • Easter Hunt!

    Easter Hunt!

    Lá spraíúil a bhí againn roimh an Chásca. Rinne gach duine Tóraíochta na Cásca timpeall an scoile. Bhain na páistí an-taitneamh as. Bhí siad ag úsaid na focail nua agus bhain siad úsaid as bhur scileanna mata freisin. Buíochas le Ms. Coen agus Ms Ginty leis an lá a eagrú.
    We had a great day before Easter as the children took part in an "Easter Hunt" around the school grounds. The children really enjoyed this. They not only used their new irish vocabulary but they also had to use their counting and maths skills to complete the challenge! Special thanks to Ms. Coen (Maths Co-ordinator) and Ms Ginty (Irish Co-ordinator) for organising the day. 
  • Science Week 2022

    Science Week 2022

    Science Week 2022

    Last week, May 3rd- 6th 2022, saw the long-awaited return of Science Week to Holy Family JNS. Science Week takes place nationally in November but we always like to mark it in the Spring term instead. Due to COVID closures this is the first time we have been able to celebrate it since April 2019.

    Science in a Junior School is often a subject that flies under the radar as children may not recognise that the lesson they are doing on trees or light, for example, is classed as Science, and without any regular Science homework, parents can also be unclear about what is covered at this level. So having a week dedicated to Science can help to highlight this curricular area, as well as how important Science is in every day life, and the many jobs and hobbies that an interest in Science can lead you towards.
