Senior Infants: World Water Day

The boys in Senior Infants celebrated World Water Day on Thursday 22nd March. They explored capacity in Maths. They also tested items to see if they were waterproof and explored whether items float or sink in Science. It was a wet day in the classroom but lots of fun was had!

 

Food Dudes

Our students responded really well to the first phase of the Food Dudes programme. All boys in the Prep School have now received their Food Dudes lunchbox and are encouraged to continue to eat healthily by bringing fruit and veg into school each day.

Food Dudes

The Preparatory School boys have been participating in the Food Dudes programme this month. This programme encourages children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home. It is based on positive role models (the Food Dudes characters), repeated tasting and rewards. The boys have really been enjoying the daily videos and letters from the Food Dudes and have been excellent at tasting the fruit and vegetables on offer.

Cooking Demonstration for 5th and 6th Classes

Ken from Brook Food Services visited the school in February to give a Cooking Demonstration to 5th & 6th Classes. The boys were enthralled on how easy it was to make some simple & healthy dishes and were delighted to taste all on offer. Ken showed the classes how to make Energy Balls, Granola, Chicken Wraps & Chicken Noodles. The aroma in our lunchroom was very tempting! Many thanks to Brook Food Services & to Ken for facilitating today’s demonstration. It all tied in nicely with our Food Dudes activities this week.

Hurling

Our Junior and Senior infant students picked up the hurleys and helmets in February as they began a block of hurling training with Liz. They started with the basics and by the end of the first session all were holding and swinging the hurleys with great style!
