Junior Infants have been very busy working hard the last few weeks! We were learning about shape and money. We got to visit Pat Russels Shop and we had great fun reading in the reading corner.
Spring really sprung with the Easter activities in Junior Infants!
World book day proves to be a real page turner...
Children have the wonderful opportunity to learn the tin whistle and the ukulele in our school. They also perform within the school choir for masses, sacraments and school performances.
