Our Pathway to Sunnier Days
We are delighted to present to you our Pathway to Sunnier Days. The girls, led by the Green School Committee, have been working on this whole-school art/ environment project since we returned to school after Easter. It includes a footprint template from every child in the school. The footprints represent our efforts to walk to school every day and our school’s commitment to the environment.
In completing the templates, we asked each girl to draw the thing they were most looking forward to this summer after the challenging year that we have all had.
We have spent this year planting seeds of hope, looking to the future and planning for brighter and sunnier days. The Pathway is brimming with plans, with excitement and hope. Our girls are fantastic they have risen to the challenges presented to them throughout the year and thrived.
We wish all of you a happy and safe summer.

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2021
SEÓ FAISIN HOLLYPARK 19ú MÁRTA 2021
Bhí Seó Faisin iontach sa scoil Dé hAoine seo caite mar chuid de imeachtaí Sheachtain na Gaeilge. Bhain na cailíní uilig an-taitneamh as agus bhí spraoi acu ag gléasadh suas agus ag labhairt i nGaeilge ar feadh na seachtaine.
We had a wonderful Fashion Show in Hollypark last week to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge. The girls had great fun dressing up and using their Gaeilge all week.
Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona daoibh go léir!!
Thank you for all of your contributions!
Science week took place this year from November 8th to 15th and we had a blast in Hollypark celebrating this yearly event. Classes logged onto virtual shows based on a variety of scientific topics from investigating bouncing bubbles to learning about the work of forensic science. Classes then conducted their very own experiments and investigations in their classrooms.
A fun and memorable week that Einstein himself would have been very proud of. There’s definitely some budding young scientist in our midst. Check out some of our videos of our experiments in action!
The girls also learnt about the works of prominent scientists and their achievements and some classes even tested their scientific knowledge in a class science quiz.
A special message from our 6th Class girls to our friends in LauraLynn.....
