Skyping Argentina

Skyping to Argentina

Our skype session with Argentina took place on the 30th of April 2013. We skyped them after 1.30pm. The name of the school was Colegio Donte Allighiere De Compano.

We learned so much about Argentina’s culture and their ways of learning. We also found out two popular sports in Argentina- hockey and basketball.  They had very good English considering they speak Spanish. Another thing we fond out was that between two children they have one iPad instead of copies. We got to how them a lot about Irish culture, such as Irish dancing, hurling, the Irish language and G.A.A.  We told them about traditional Iris dinners and Ella played the Irish national anthem on the violin. they learned to count to ten in Irish and us in Spanish. We had so much fun skying Argentina and we hope to do it again soon.

Green Flag


Green Flag Awards

Our school was awarded the Green flag on Thursday the 16th May at a ceremony in the Moran Convention Centre in Cork. Congratulations to Ms Browne and the Green Schools Committee for all their work to get the Green flag.

On the 16th of March Mrs. Browne, Bríd, myself and Jane went to the Silver Springs Hotel to accept our schools first green flag.

We left at 11.30am and when we arrived we received our complimentary bags. in the bag was a postcard, a tattoo and a bookmark promoting the Green Schools website.

We went upstairs to the function room. This is where the presentation was held. There was a noticeboard with projects, posters and newspaper articles. There was a green flag hanging up with a gigantic version of the bookmark. 

By 2 pm it was time for food! We were starving. We were all seated and our menu was delicious. The choice was:

Chicken wrapped in bacon with a side of vegetables


Lasagne with side salad and chips


Baileys cheesecake with ice- cream and cream

We all chose the chicken, it was divine. The cheesecake was just heaven!

The ceremony began after the food. There was a man in a globe costume. It was very well presented. We took photographs with him. Examples of how much litter and waste was saved by each category. Litter and waste was the weight of 69 blue whales!Energy was to the moon and back 17 times!

It was a great experience. I was delighted to be chosen to represent the school.

All classes were busy on Friday making cards and presents for their mothers. We were just lucky to get some pictures of what Mrs O’Callaghan’s class and Ms Fitzpatrisk’s class made forMother’s Day. I’m sure that all the mothers were delighted with their gifts.
