Athletics & Hurling in the Sun

Herbertstown NS participated in two events today in beautiful May sunshine.


Over 40 pupils travelled to Ennis to take part in the Limerick Primary school athletics while our school’s hurlers competed in the South Cumann na mBunscol hurling blitz in Martinstown.


Busy Times in 3rd & 4th Class

3rd and 4th have been busy on many fronts in recent times, here are two of the activities they have been working on.


Last October, the class harvested seeds from the classroom Jack o’Lantern. In the last few weeks they have planted the seeds and watched them sprout into shoots and grow leaves. Today, they moved the plants into bigger pots to give them more room.


The Normans

They also continued their study of the Normans and castles through their artwork. They used a foam/glue/paint combination to create a 3D effect castle.

This followed a previous art activity where they created a Norman knight. The excitement now builds ahead of their school tour to King John’s Castle next week!

Star Awards – April

Congratulations to our Star Award winners for April!

One pupil from each classroom was selected by their class teacher and the award winners were presented with certificates at today’s assembly.

They were also given a night off homework for their efforts!
