This week fifth and sixth classes paired up with junior and senior infants as part of our reading buddy system. Children from older classes became reading buddies to children from younger classes and each child read a book to their reading buddy. We are looking forward to doing this once a week for the school year. Well done to everybody involved. We are already looking forward to next week!!!
Junior Infants had great fun exploring the sense of taste this week.

The One Book One Community Project was launched by the lord Mayor at the Lough today. Children from all the local primary schools gathered together to begin a fortnight of work on Michael Morpurgo’s “Mr. Nobody’s Eyes.” World Champion, Bernard Dunne popped along to encourage all our young people to keep up their love of reading.
A selection of classes dressed up in odd socks for National Down Syndrome Day. All over the country boys and girls wore odd socks to school to raise money for Down Syndrome Ireland. All the money raised at Greenmount N.S. on the day will be donated to Down Syndrome Cork.
