Sincere thanks to all of the families who contributed to both the Show box Appeal and the School Book Fair. Again this year over 70 shoe boxes were collected from our school to aid disadvantage children in foreign countries. The generosity and kindness shown by everyone who donated is greatly appreciated.
Our Scholastic book fair was terrifically organised and coordinated by our dedicated parents council. The school are very grateful to everyone who volunteered and supported the event. The picture below shows the amazing rewards it had reaped for our school.
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.
Some of the children were interviewed by the camera man who accompanied the Tipperary food representative. Keep an eye on our subjects page for video footage of the day in the coming weeks.
The teachers in our school will regularly post new blog posts keeping you up to date with all that is happening in Scoil Teampall Toinne.
