For the month of March and April, we did a project called the Irish Aid Awards.
We are going to be talking about a food demonstration and a play we did in class.
In the food demonstration we made a bunch of recipes using leftover food .
Here are some of the food we made today . For starters we made a Caesar salad
for main course we made a cheesy pasta and for dessert we made brownies in a cup.
Now we are going to talk about how the drama went we were doing a play to show people to help countries like Ethiopia in the play, we gave an Ethiopian person seeds so they can grow a plant then they can sell the the plant to make money and buy food.
Both activities were a huge success!

Ms.Higgins' 6th class have started doing the Irish Aid Awards. This means that the class are doing a number of mini projects that were put together to create the entry for the awards. The theme is 'Leave No One Behind'they chose two topics Zero Hunger and Responsible Consumption and Production.
We already knew a bit about the topics but were not sure what they really meant. So we all did a bit of research and found out that people in the partner countries were not as fortunate as Ireland and it was a lot worse than we thought. So we decided to take on the job of spreading the word to the public.
We did this by contacting our local shopping centre (Bridge Centre) to spread the word and and have a food donation trolley.
Then our teacher's friend Trasa came in to talk to us about Ethiopia as she went there for three weeks last summer.
HERE ARE THE PHOTOS!!!
More parts of the project are still in progress. Check in later for more!

From the 14th-19th October was Maths Week. Our class did a Maths Fair on Friday the 19th. We had lots of fun preparing our maths games. Each class came down and and played our games. Some of our games were: Number Cups, Maths Twister, Treasure Island, Fortune Maths Problems, Snakes and Ladders, Hook the Answer and many more…..We designed posters to let the school know that the fair was taking place. On the morning of the Maths Fair each group set up their maths games in St. Mary’s Youth Centre. All of the other classes came down to enjoy our activities. Each group was a great success! We had a lot of fun doing the Maths Fair.

On the 10th of May, the 6th class got invited to the Sacred Heart School to watch the Junk Kouture show. All the Transition Year students made dresses out of junk and recycled materials. The girls put a lot of effort into the dresses, and it all paid off in the end. All the girls got a chance to vote, the votes were counted by the loudest cheer. After the show, the girls got to take photographs with the models. The girls had a great time, and we all enjoyed ourselves.

On the 21st of April, all the girls in 6th class made their Confirmation in the Church of Assumption , Tullamore. All the girls came into the church with their beautiful styles, and they were accompanied by their families and sponsors. In the parents' room there was a photographer, and after mass some of the girls came back to the school to get their photos taken. Bishop Micheal Smith was also present and some girls got photos alongside him! The girls enjoyed themselves on this very special occasion. When the girls came back to school the following Monday, the girls all got pizza and cake! Thank you Ms Marron and Ms Higgins for preparing us for this special day!
