Special shout out for an amazing poem !
Here is a special shout out to an amazing budding poet. Hamda used her free writing time to create a poem about her teacher , incorporated Gaeilge into it and conveyed her emotions excellently. Helena gave Hamda a special award and a copy of the poem is hanging in Helena's wall of fame. Keep up the thoughtful fantastic work!
Rowan Class is inspired by Amedeo Modigliani.
Last week we were working really hard on a self-portrait inspired by Amedeo Modigliani. These portraits have a very unique feature that was controversial in our class, the striking elongated knecks. I really love how all the children extended their imagination to themselves and to their own body. Maith sibh!

Redwood Class - Exploring line and colour through printing
The Redwood class showed off their artistic flare this week through exploring line and colour. They began their pieces by discussing and drawing different types of lines - wavy, geometric, spirals and chevrons to name a few. They then coloured water based markers on resistant tinfoil and sprayed it. This created watercolour paint which they then pressed the paper on. Check out the results!
Elections Sept 19th
Today we had our class elections for Student Council, Active School, Green School and Forest School. All the boys and girls had a chance to present their posters and prepared speech on why they are the best person for the role. The children voted anonymously in each category and the votes were tallied.
Congratulations to Cailyn who was voted in for Student Council, Hamda for Active School, Evan for Green School and Alannah for Forest School. Well done again.
Rowan class explore self-portraits through print
Rowan class continued to work on self-portaits this week. We used washable markers to cover tin foil in different colours and drew a self-portrait of ourselves with a black marker. We sprayed the tinfoil and then printed our sheet down for the colours to transfer onto the page. It gave an amazing tie-die effect and the colours blended together to make our self-portraits vibrant and unique.
