Marine Biodiversity Workshop

On Friday (April 8th), Dave from Atlantaquarium came in to visit our class. We took part in a Marine Biodiversity workshop. First, Dave talked to us about the seas and the ocean and we listed the different types of sea creatures we could name. We then were given a few sea shells and we used a key to identify them. We did the same thing with different types of seaweed. After this, Dave brought in some sea creatures and we were allowed to hold them. He brought in a starfish, a sea urchin and a crab. We had loads of fun and we learned so much about the sea and the ocean!

Dental Hygiene Workshop

Here are some photos from the Dental Hygiene Workshop we went to last week. The nurses told us how many spoons of sugar there was in each of our favourite foods. They also taught us the correct way to brush our teeth. We got a free toothbrush, a sticker and a certificate for taking part.

Presentation of Irish Flag and HSE Healthy Schools Flag

Last week, our school received two new flags. First, we got the Irish National Flag from the Army. The sergeants told us a little bit about what happened in 1916 and we were allowed to ask them questions. The Mayor of Galway, Frank Fahy came to visit for the ceremony. Niamh read out a paragraph from the proclamation and we sang the national anthem; Amhrán na bhFiann. We also received the HSE's Healthy Schools flag. We are the first school in Galway to get this flag! Our health promotion officers were Sian and Tess.
