A video of 5th class taking off on their cycle following a training day by Lucas from the green school committee.  Lets hope to see more children cycling to school everyday.

Raising our 4th Green Flag

Some short videos of our celebrations when we raised our 4th green flag entitled TRAVEL.

During the previous 2 years the children have made a huge effort to walk, park and stride or car pool to school.  It has been wonderful to see a decrease in traffic and less cars parked outside the school in the mornings  and evenings.

Debating Competition

Well done to the 6th class girls on reaching the semi-final of the Tuam Education Centre debating competition, where they narrowly lost out to the Mercy Primary School in a very tough debate.

In the quarter-final, Aoibhe, Clodagh and Johanna defeated Gardenfield, opposing the motion “Ireland is a corrupt country”.

 

In the semi-final, Tara, Gemma and  Johanna proposed the motion “Social media can be harmful”.

As a warm-up to the debating final, Clodagh, Alanna and Lauren opposed the motion that Alien life exists outside planet earth against St. Pats. After a very entertaining debate it was deemed too difficult to separate the teams and so the debate resulted in a draw.

Overall it was a fantastic competition and we look forward to next years competition already.

 

Wardens Competition

Well done to Wednesdays team who represented the school in the Galway County Council wardens Competition held in Moylough last Tuesday.  Although the girls didn’t win they performed superbly and were extremely safe and competent on the road.

Well done to all involved and to the rest of the 6th class girls for performing their duty so carefully each evening.

Flag Raising

On Tuesday March 15th the eldest and youngest pupil of the Presentation Primary School with the help of Sgt. Gannon raised the national flag to remember the events of 1916.  The pupils from 6th class read the new proclamation while the pupils from 3rd class up sang and played the national anthem.  It was a wonderful afternoon with Céilí dancing for the children in 4th class and the parents.  The bottom corridor was beautifully decorated with projects depicting the various events of 1916.

Well done to all the pupils and staff involved, it was a wonderful way to commemorate 1916.
