The children of 2nd and 3rd class won the recent Tipperary Food Tour Competition. They excitedly received their prize last Friday. Each child got to experience a virtual reality tour of a number of Tipperary Food suppliers throughout the county. The children wore specialised electronic goggles which enabled them to travel and explore around the various suppliers. They also received a wonderful Tipperary Food book and work book telling the story of the K.E.L.T.S. -Kids who like to explore Tipperary.
They listened to Michael from 'Emerald Oils' speak about harvesting and producing rapeseed oil. They also sampled chocolate biscuit cake made with his rapeseed oil.

Junior and senior infants have been very busy celebrating their teddy Barney’s birthday. Barney turned 6 on September 27th. They had a wonderful time in our party corner preparing for the celebrations and giggling at our puppet show. We created super presents for Barney using all our recyclable materials. He now has a lovely, house and games amongst other things. They enjoyed singing Happy Birthday and not forgetting the taste of delicious chocolate cake. Happy Birthday Barney!
They also have been learning and exploring about Autumn. They went on a lovely nature walk and used all our sense to notice the signs of Autumn. They had great fun making their own dens preparing for hibernation. They made some playdough animals and they created gorgeous leaf rubbings.
