Our Grandparents and parents arrived in their droves;some had travelled from other counties.

The songs and prayers were very well received,.

We enjoyed reading in the library today for Children’s Book Week.So many books, so little time . We are learning about idioms too such as – One for the books . Never judge a book by it’s cover. An open book. Take a leaf out of someone’s book. Read between the lines. The oldest trick in the book. We love reading.
Fourth Class really enjoyed their trip to the Library for Children’s Book Week. We learned lots of interesting facts about The Vikings. We dressed like Vikings, went into battle, drank out of Viking horns , held spears and shields and lots lots more. Many thanks to all the parents who dropped and collected and to the staff of Tralee Library. This is not going according to plan The battle begins..

Maths Quizzes galore on Friday! We held two Mega Quizzes: Junior and Senior. All hands on deck and a hum of concentration prevailed, as each table settled into each round of questions. Each team has a child from each class. It’s a nice way for kids to meet and co-operative with other classes. Maths Week takes a lot of preparation but it’s worth it….
Yellow is often described as a ‘mentally stimulating’ colour. We don’t need any stimulation in Caherleaheen😄. We opted for a new calm colour, on walls that haven’t seen paint for over a decade. 21 parents painted in 2hour slots. One third of parents from Fifth and Fourth classes arrived on the day armed with sheets, brushes, rollers, sweets and big smiles. That is a great response, when so many more.
The children in the senior classes spent their day solving puzzles and working in small groups. We had a lovely surprise visit from our American friends Rory and Ian Browne with their parents Kerry and John. The two boys joined in the fun.
