Iniscealtra National School
News October 2010
Eight new pupils started school in junior infants this year. We welcome Mark, Ultan, Ciara, Leona, Sadie, Eadaoin, Niamh, Emma, and wish them well in their first school year.
The school garden has done well this summer with good crops of strawberries, currants, raspberries, peas, broad beans, runner beans, cabbage and cauliflower. During the summer break a weekly gardening club squad tended the garden and sampled the produce, as well as making raspberry jam and cooking peas. Ready for us when we returned after the holidays were more peas and beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers and squash as well as a couple of ‘smiley’ sunflowers and an array of nasturtiums, sweet peas and marigolds.
On Friday September 24th, the children of fifth and sixth class went on a cycle to visit some archaeological and historical monuments. The itinerary included the mill at Bowriver, The lime Kiln in Moynoe and the Mass Rock at Cappabane. The children enjoyed the day very much and look forward to another trip before the end of October.
