Book Buzz in Ollies

We are in love with our new ‘Book Buzz bees’. Anna designed our logo and they have been proudly displayed around our school in anticipation of Book Buzz events which will be happening in the near future. Exciting times ahead for reading in our school. Anna will update us during the week on our school blog about her design and details also of the Christmas book buzz ideas. Keep buzzing with our books!

Halloween is coming!

With the Halloween midterm nearly here there has been lots of ghoulish activity around our school the last few days. Today some of the senior classes were making/carving pumpkins. A Jack O Lantern is a carved pumpkin, or turnip, associated chiefly with the holiday of Halloween, and was named after the phenomenon of strange light flickering over peat bogs, called Will O the Wisp or Jack-O’-lantern.

We had so much fun today carving, cutting and designing. We will let you see our pumpkins tomorrow, lighting and ready for Halloween.

Sinead brings Brendan to Ollies

Today our past pupil Sinéad Aherne brought the Brendan Martin cup to our school after the Dublin ladies fantastic win over Mayo in September. We were all dressed in blue and there was great excitement as one of our heroes came to visit. Well done to Sinead, Niamh and Nicole on their amazing achievements.
