Seachtain na Gaeilge 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!!

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.
