Congratulations to 5th Class who recently completed the Junior Achievement Programme. Over a series of 5 weeks the children learned about the Circular Economy, created a plan to design a mobile app, used mathematical skills to survive a “crash landing”, used their engineering skills to design and create bridges and created an advertisement campaign. Well done everyone and a big thank you to Alan Buckley, a former past pupil, from Waters Technology Wexford, who led the programme with the children.

A big “Thank You” to Garda Madeline and Garda Aine who visited the senior rooms today to speak to us about Cyber Bullying. 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Class all benefited greatly from a revision of the rules and guidance on how to stay safe online and how to prevent and help stop bullying on social media and gaming platforms. Pictured below are the children of 5th and 6th Class with our visitors.

The boys and girls of 2nd class will receive the sacrament of reconciliation on Wednesday night, 29th March at 7pm in Caim church. They have been working hard and preparing well for this special occasion. We wish them all the best.

Thursday 16th March saw a sea of green in our school. We celebrated the end of Seachtain na Gaeilge and our patron saint, Saint Patrick. We held an assembly in the hall where each class had prepared a song, dance or poem ‘as Gaeilge’ and we had our ‘Seo Faisean’ Check out some of the pictures from our assembly.

Míle Buíochas to Ms Brady and 6th class who organised it all.

We celebrated World Book Day in Caim NS today. Check out our fabulous doors. Can you you guess the book? A big well done to all the boys and girls who dressed up today, here are some pictures of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes!

5th and 6th class have been very creative over the past few weeks. We have created sock puppets by sewing felt and buttons onto our socks and are currently working on felt pictures! The children are enjoying learning new skills and are available for all patching and stitching required at home from now on!

A big thank you to Diane from Enniscorthy Hockey Club who gave us excellent sessions in Hockey over the past few months. All the children, from Junior Infants to 6th Class, got a chance to experience Hockey Training in school each week and we learned lots of new skills such as Indian and Glue Dribbling, as well as the box challenge! It was great to see the children progress so much in such a short time, at a sport that was new to many of them!

Congratulations to our Mini 7s Camogie and Hurling teams who represented our school with distinction this week! The teams, featuring children from 4th, 5th and 6th class, faced stiff opposition from Donard NS and Courtnacuddy NS here in Caim NS. The children, and their coach Mr. Kavanagh, gave it their all, with great passes, scores and saves by both teams, however, we were unsuccessful this time. The children are preparing now for their Rackard League campaigns, starting next week.
