Line of the week
After winning Line of the Week 4 times in a row, we enjoyed an additional reward of watching a movie in the PE hall. We all shared bags of microwavable popcorn. Well done on all the hard work 6th class.
From the 16/10/2023 to 20/10/2023, we celebrated Maths week in school. We used chalk to represent patterns and tessellating shapes on the yard. We also took part in an online Maths quiz with hundreds of schools around Ireland.
Thank you to Leinster Rugby and MU Barnhall for facilitating rugby training on the school yard. The children are having lots of fun while learning some of the fundamental skills. We look forward to more lessons over the coming few weeks.
Congratulations to 6th class on the completion of their block of swimming lessons at the National Aquatic Center. It was great to see each of the children make great progress over the 6 week block.
Today , on the 12th of October 2023 , we took a trip to Griffeen Park as a reward for the hard work that we had put into the start of the school year. Some kids brought a football and played a match in the field beyond the gate to the park. Some kids went and built volcanoes out of sand, using grass and leaves for further decoration.. We all definitely enjoyed this trip and hope to go on more trips over the course of our last year at A.C.E.T.N.S.
