Our book week in the school was a huge success.
Lots of fun activities, authors, plays and especially lots of reading. We all had a lovely time and it has made us want to read more as a hobby, for fun and when we want to relax.
Here are some photos from the day we dressed up as characters from our favorite books.

It was Lá Glas today in our school to end what has been an incredible Seachtain na Gaeilge. We had a big Céili in the hall with all the classes and some our students who actually do Irish dancing were able to treat us to some performances. It was great seeing all the students and teachers dressed in green and we wish everybody a Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
There is great excitement in the school today as the Lego exhibition has finally arrived. All of the children in the school have been invited to ‘display/present’ their Lego in our school hall.
All classes will get to visit the exhibition today with the inventors exhibiting their work and answering all questions. It is great to see the wonderfully industrious boys and girls from Ollies bring’ Lego to a new dimension’.
Every class in the school has representatives who have worked tirelessly in order to make this day happen. It is is Lego creativity at its best and there is great ‘pride’ on Grove road this morning.
A big thanks to the student council who are collecting, managing and organising the event. Well done to all on the ‘Lego team’!
