Scór na bPáistí

Well done to the school’s musicians, and their teacher Ms Barry, who are took time out of their weekends to represent the school at Scór na bPáistí in Askeaton on Saturday.  

The group performed the piece ‘Inis Oírr’ in the Instrumental Music section of the competition.


Well done to our chess team who represented the school at the Ficheall Tournament earlier today in Scoil Dean Cussen, Bruff.

The team had been taking time out of their lunch breaks in recent weeks to prepare and really enjoyed the experience in Bruff.

Walk on…Thursday

Bad weather had hampered a few attempts to complete WOW walks in December and earlier in January so we took the opportunity on Thursday to make the most of the lovely day.

It is always a nice experience for the boys and girls and a great way to support our efforts to renew our Active School Flag status.

4th/5th Class Investigate the Impact of Salt on Ice

In this experiment we investigated the impact of salt on ice. We placed ice cubes in a tin can, laid the string on the ice, added salt and after approximately one minute we pulled the string out of the water with all the ice cubes attached.

When salt is sprinkled over the ice, it lowers the ice’s freezing point and causes it to melt. Water around the ice forms and then the string sinks into the ice.
