School Walk 2019!

We all had a fantastic day yesterday, Wednesday, April 3rd, on our school walk. Teachers and pupils alike walked down to Laurel Lodge green throughout the day all with the aim of raising funds for our Sensory Room project!

We hope that all of our pupils and staff, along with our lovely parent volunteers, had a great day!

Thank you to the Parents Association for providing the treats for the pupils.

We kindly ask for all sponsorship cards to be returned to school as soon as possible.

Here are some photos of the Junior walk - you can see some other photos on our Twitter or Instagram account - @ScoilThomais

Irish Wildlife Visit

On Tuesday the 1st of April, Conn Flynn gave the children of 4th class a very informative presentation on Irish wildlife, Biodiversity, Habitats and Ecosystems. Conn was so impressed with the children’s prior knowledge of these subject areas. A highlight of the presentation was seeing a Sparrow hawk in action as well as the Badger Bin Fight. Thanks again to Conn for a great day!

Room 22 have been hard at work!

The children in Ms. O’ Leary’s fourth class have been busy learning all about Japan. The children completed amazing projects about Japan and dressed up in Japanese costume on Friday. The children will present their projects in class over the next week or two.  Some of the children made some lovely origami pieces to celebrate the day. We also made some lovely lollipop stick boxes for Mother’s Day on Sunday. We hope all the mums have a lovely Mother’s Day!

Chess Tournament Update

The chess tournament has reached its final stages and our wonderful participants are preparing for their last matches! Well done to everyone who participated so far, and for everyone waiting to play their final match - the very best of luck to you all! Here are some pictures from the competition to date. 

Muifíní i Rang 26!

Last week, we made blueberry muffins as part of our lessons for Seachtain na Gaeilge. We started by learning the Irish words for the ingredients and materials we needed (flour, eggs, caster sugar, blueberries etc.) and then we made the muffins in the staff room. There were two different groups (boys versus girls). It was a tough decision for our teacher, but he finally chose a winner…the boys! We all had a lot of fun and got to eat the muffins after. Take a look!

 

An tseachtain seo caite, rinneamar muifíní fraochan gorma do Seachtain na Gaeilge. D’fhoghlaim muid an Ghaeilge nua a bhí ag teastáil (plúr, uibheacha, siúcra mín, fraochán gorma srl.) agus ansin rinneamar na muifiní sa seomra foirne. Bhí dhá grúpa ann – buachaillí agus cáiliní. Bhí rogha deacair le déanamh ag an múinteoir, ach faoi dheireadh, phioc sé an buaiteoir...na buachaillí! Bhí an-chraic againn agus bhí na muifíní an-bhlásta. Féachaigí orthu!
