Last month, 6th Class started to use Minecraft and Sketchup during our ‘Tech Fridays’ golden time. We were set a challenge by Conor, a lecturer in UCD! We always chat to Conor on twitter.   @StPetersBray I need a new and better classroom plan… can you guys help? — Conor Galvin (@_conorgalvin) October 17, 2014 We decided to help Conor! He told us about his class and what the room would need to look like! @StPetersBray About 35. Mostly grown up… they like technology but not desks and are happier with beanbags and sofas. And coffee… — Conor Galvin (@_conorgalvin)...

6th Class have started a new book called ‘Reaching the Heights’. It’s set in Co. Cork and is about three teenagers and the challenges they face in their lives. It is a demanding read, with lots of social problems explored in it. We’re really enjoying it so far. Have a listen to our first podcast on the book, all about Chapters 1-5.

Yesterday, 22 students from 5th and 6th class travelled to the Aviva to watch UCD Waves play in the final of the FAI Women’s Cup.

Thanks to UCD Waves for our tickets and to Dublin Bus for supplying our transport. Thanks also to Paddy, Ms Flanagan, Mr Kinsella, Ms Kane, Ms Keating, Ms Sexton and Mr Foley for organising the trip and coming along to look after the students – and to Alan for the photo above!
