They had lots of fun collaborating with the infants and 1st class during maths week. Halloween was definitely celebrated in style with some spooky dancing in Mrs. O’Connor’s room. Second class took part in lots of fun activities during friendship fortnight and they should be so proud of the respect and kindness they always show towards each other every day. 




It has been another busy term in 2nd class. The boys and girls have been working exceptionally hard across the curriculum. They have learned lots of new things like ‘The Life Cycle of the Salmon’ and lots of fun facts about ‘Space’. They have been extremely active this term and in particular, they have really enjoyed orienteering. Huge congratulations to all the boys and girls who made the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

In S.P.H.E., second class have been talking about their characteristics and qualities. They all shared what they like about themselves and what makes them unique. They all completed their own mirrors, drawing pictures about the amazing qualities and characteristics they see when they look in the mirror.
