Seachtain na Gaeilge

Our school has been celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge last week and this week. The children are working hard to learn their frásaí and to use them in school and at home. There are lots of fun activities in art, music and drama. Classes will participate in Tráth na gCéist (Table Quiz), Tóraíocht Taisce (Treasure Hunts), Ciorcal Comhrá agus Céilí Mór. The week will finish off with a Lá Glas (Green Day) on Friday 16th March and we welcome back Mó -Mó productions with their bi-lingual production of “An Tuar Ceatha Caillte”.
We are asking all children to contribute €2 towards the cost of this production. This can be given to the class teacher.
This is a great opportunity to practice using Gaeilge sa Bhaile.
Bain Taithneamh as!!

Bunanza Brilliance!

There was huge excitement in our school today as the annual bake sale took place in the hall. There were queues of cakes and buns on Grove Road today and some brilliant parents lending a hand to the success of a day which raises vital funds for our school.

The best book Friday ever!


From writing workshops to puppet shows and storytelling with uncles to authors what a day we have had in St. Oliver Plunkett school. It has capped off a fun week of reading and entertaining authors and a magical week of imagination. Well done to all involved and a huge thank you to our book buzz team.

Ooh, Aah John Kane


What a wonderful OOh Aah experience with John Kane. Kids were so engaged and participation levels exceeded all expectation for a really fantastic book. Our infants and teachers loved it. As you can see our drawings really helped.
