static electricity

2nd Class had great fun learning about static electricity.

They investigated how a balloon and a pen can be used to pick up small pieces of paper.

They also tested different materials, made some predictions and recorded the outcomes!

Our Christmas Musical

How fantastic do we look on the stage in our costumes. We performed the musical ‘The Snowman’. We hope you all enjoyed it. We certainly did. Merry Christmas everyone.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Santa came to visit us here in Greenmount. The excitement!! We sang him our favourite Christmas songs and then he gave us presents. Thank you Santa. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Christmas Crackers

Happy Christmas!! We had so much fun today pulling Christmas crackers. We won party hats and lots of little prizes. We are really looking forward to Christmas.


We all went shopping this morning. Thank you to Ms. Ahern’s class for setting up the shop for us. We were busy with our shopping bags, reading price tags and choosing items to buy.

Life Skills

We were very busy in the kitchen this morning. Over the past few weeks we have been practising washing our hands and faces, brushing our teeth, spreading butter on toast and pouring juice. We are getting so good at it that today we did all our jobs together. Look how fantastic we are.

Pizza Party

We made pizzas in school. We spread the tomato sauce on the pizza base and then sprinkled cheese on top. We put them in the oven to cook. When they were ready we all tried some pizza. Yum yum!



We love tennis! We have been working hard on our tennis skills over the past few weeks. Thank you so much to the tennis coaches.

Christmas show fun!!!

Yesterday was a very special day for 6th class pupils. Not only did they write their own outstanding play and made amazing props they performed it in front of moms & dads, students, teachers and everybody else!!
On the day of the play some of our class mates had stage fright so we all encouraged each other to go on stage. On top of all this we were under time pressure to get the final script completed because we were also completing our history project.
Our play was first on out of the afternoon shows which were the 4th, 5th and 6th classes. Our play had so many funny bits and the audience got a great laugh!! Our play was about Santa not sticking to his diet all year and then he ended up getting stuck in a chimney!
After our play we got so many compliments about how funny it was! Our principal Mr. Hurley said that it was so funny and that he loved it. That made our whole class very happy.
We also had a very special guest, Leanne Murphy who came out at the end! We would like to give a special thanks to Olivia and Caoilfhionn for writing the first draft of the Christmas play! We would also like to give a special thanks to Ryan our musical director. We would also like to give a special thanks to our parents for all of the extra help and great support and encouragement always!! Happy Christmas everybody!!
