The Easter Bunny made an early appearance in Scoil Oilibhéir this week….. he is obviously a very busy bunny these days!! The Junior Infants got a wonderful surprise when they went out to find that the bunny had scattered eggs around the garden. What fun for the children as they searched for chocolate treasure…… and, needless to say, there was even more fun back in the classroom where the children got to eat the treasure- chocolatey smiles all round!

As part of the Aistear programme, all the Junior Infants are exploring the theme of food for the month of November. To tie in with our Lifeskills programme we decided to learn how to make sandwiches. So it was off to the shop to buy bread, ham, cheese, jam and bananas. On the way we called into St Oliver’s Church to say our prayers and light a holy candle. We enjoyed buttering the bread but we had a tough time choosing what we wanted to fill them with! We look forward to learning how to make more yummy food to eat!

The junior infants in Room 18 have been showing a huge interest in the pumpkins that were growing in our school since September so they were thrilled when Mrs Quinlan allowed us to pick one for our classroom! We spent time today exploring the pumpkins appearance, weight, shape, smell and even got to feel the inside which was lots of fun! We will be carving its face and raffling it off on Friday!

Our Junior Infants stood out from the crowd today as they made their way home wearing their brand new Hi-Vis vests. The vests are provided as part of an initiative sponsored by Electric Ireland and the Road Safety Authority aimed at highlighting road safety among primary school pupils and the wider community. Many thanks to Mr John Drinan, Chairperson of our Board of Management, who dropped the vests into the school today. We hope to see the children wearing the vests as they are out and about over the next few weeks. Be Safe, Be Seen!

It is always very exciting to see our new Junior Infants coming to ‘big school’ for the first time. This year the infants had a treat in store on their first day – they went to see the fairy doors in the garden. We have no doubt that the sprinkling of magic fairy dust will ensure that the children have a happy and successful first year in school!!
