The senior classes recently attended a 1916 workshop with Michael Moylan at the Tipperary County Museum in Clonmel. The pupils saw an original copy of The Proclamation from 1916 and learned more about the history before, during and after that time period. There was a very informative exhibition on display for all to see and the pupils also got a chance to see the uniforms and weaponry that would have been used at that time.

Nature Walk with Albert Nolan
All of the classes recently went on a nature walk with local environmentalist and wildlife enthusiast Albert Nolan. The junior classes explored the school grounds while the senior classes went on a trip around the locality. The walks have allowed pupils the opportunity to discover and appreciate the different types of flora and fauna that exist in the environment around them.

Animal Magic Visit Thomastown NS
Animal Magic Wildlife Rescue paid a visit to all the classes recently. The pupils got to experience the beauty of nature and wildlife in the surroundings of their own classrooms. Bearded dragon lizards, a thorny owl, a barn owl, vampire rabbits and even a boa constrictor snake were on display. Pupils got a chance to touch and hold all of the animals, they learned all about their habitats, feeding patterns and how certain species are now in danger of extinction. Thank you to the Thomastown NS Parents' Council who helped to organise the visit. More information on the work of Animal Magic Wildlife Rescue can be found on www.animalmagic.ie
