The Infants are looking at Santa's workshop this week in Aistear. They had a present wrapping session today. The good news is that they are all fully trained to wrap presents this Christmas!
A reminder that the Thomastown Parents Council will hold their Annual Coffee Morning and Cake Sale on Sunday, 8th December in Kilfeacle Hall at 10.30am. All support welcome.
The Infants visited their 4th, 5th and 6th Class Buddies this morning to thank them for helping them on the hike yesterday. They gave their Buddy a Thank You card and some chocolates.
Following our hike yesterday, the staff of Aherlow House Hotel very kindly provided hot chocolate and marshmallows for the pupils - a very well deserved treat at the end of the day!
Yesterday, the entire school visited the Glen of Aherlow Nature Park. The pupils and staff hiked through the woods as part of our school sponsored walk. We saw lots of different flora and fauna, Christ the King Statue and of course the Galtee Mountains as we trekked along the old Bianconi road. Thank you to everyone who has supported our fundraising efforts so far.
The Infants have been looking at houses and homes over the last week. As part of this, they made houses of straw, sticks and bricks in Art!
Congratulations to our quiz team who finished in 6th place overall at the recent County Tipperary GAA Primary School Quiz Final in the Sarsfields Centre in Thurles. Twenty teams participated in total on the night. With three of our team members available to participate in next year's quiz, we look forward to learning lots more about the GAA in the coming months.
Junior and Senior Infants were learning about the dentist this week in Aistear! They role played the dentist surgery, made mouths with marshmallow teeth, decided which food would make a healthy mouth and built dentist surgeries from blocks!
Congratulations to Bansha Celtic FC who recently won the Under 13 Tipperary Cup Final v Slievenamon. The team included one of our current pupils as well as a number of our past pupils. Well done boys!
