Hi everyone! We hope you are enjoying the holidays! Here is what 6th Class have been up to in the run up to the holidays. As always, school has been very busy!

Along with every school in the country we celebrated Proclamation Day 2016.

6th Class students made speeches and did themselves proud.

We were honoured to welcome Create School and Wicklow County Council representatives to our classroom to help to launch an amazing mini-film recalling the events 1916.

We finished our 1916 projects too. We put so much work into them! When we shared them on Twitter we got lots of cool retweets.

Including from the official 1916 Commemoration account.

We got crafty for St. Patrick’s Day!

We also visited the Ballywaltrim Community Centre with students from all over Bray to take part in a quiz, the final activity in our local ‘One Book, One Community’ project.

We completed the Bray Drugs Awareness course too! This was a six week course, and everyone worked so hard on it.

We embraced ‘Girl Power’ and celebrated IWD!

We were also true to our Active School flag too, many of us competed in a 3k in Avondale!

We’ve been training hard with Tommy too…

We were so sad when we finished our book, ‘The Young Rebels’. It was a great choice for One Book, One Community.

We were lucky enough to meet the author of the book.

Speaking of which, we got beautiful cards from the author!

We had a brilliant class trip to St. Enda’s, the school in Rathfarnham where Padraig Pearse was principal. It is where our book is set, an it was instrumental in the 1916 Rising story.

For the rest of the year, 6th Class will be helping the Junior Infants out with their reading too!

Stephen came in to remind us about staying safe online.

We’ve been thinking of others too.

A&H helped to run the school book fair.

And we heard from a local community support group who do incredible work in our area.

We’ve also been preparing for Confirmation and attending mass a lot during Lent.

I think that proves we all deserve this Easter break! We can’t wait to catch up from April 4th, when we are back to school. Until then, stay bloggy!

6th Class.
