None of the children from Caim NS turned up for school today… instead these scary characters came in! We have a very spooky school today!

The boys and girls in 1st and 2nd class had great fun this week making slime! Check out their pictures below.

As part of Maths Week here in Caim NS, 6th class set up a variety of Maths stations for 3rd, 4th and 5th classes outside. We had great fun whilst still using our Maths brains.

Congratulations to Conor and Eve who were the lucky winners of our pumpkin raffle. Many thanks to Marion, Tom and James(Past pupils) for the generous donation of the pumpkins which they grew locally.

First Class have been busy learning all about shapes. Have a look at some of the activities they took part in!

Maths week begins on 16th October 2021. We have many fun maths activities and games planned for the week, including puzzles, stations, trails and quizzes. We are starting off the week with estimation! Check back in for more updates and pictures.

6th class have been learning all about the Aboriginal people in History. We learned about how they lived, worked and communicated. One interesting thing we explored was how they used boomerangs and what they were used for in hunting. We were very lucky to experience throwing a boomerang outside.

This week we had the privilege to welcome a past Principal of Caim NS, Mr Gerard Beggan. 2021 marks the 60th anniversary of his departure from the school. A lot has changed in those 60 years, including a new school. Gerard recalls fondly his years spent teaching here. He kindly gifted the school €1,000 to be used for the provision of Maths equipment and resources, a subject Gerard feels passionately about and has worked tirelessly on throughout his career. Thank you Mr Beggan, from all of us here in Caim NS

Congratulations to the thirteen boys and girls who received their first Communion on Saturday 2nd October. We hope you had a wonderful day.
