Earlier this month Ms. O’Halloran’s third class visited the residents’ garden beside the school grounds in Bourne Avenue. They were met by Gerry, Mick and Gerry who take very good care of the garden and who kindly brought the children on a tour around the garden to show them what they had planted this year. The children were very excited to roll up their sleeves and start harvesting fruit and vegetables such as potatoes, onions and strawberries. There were smiles all round when the children got to bring home a variety of what they had picked. They also got some fabulous sunflowers. Thank you to members of the local Garden City & Crestwood Residents’ Association for the invitation to our pupils. They had a great time.

Congratulations to Ivy from Ms Geraghty’s 4th class who got her hair cut over the Summer as part of the Locks of Love for Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice. Ivy raised nearly two thousand euros and the hair she donated will be used to make wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatments or other conditions. We are all very proud of Ivy and she looks very stylish with her new haircut.
