The whole school took part in our Green Schools Action Day on Friday the 10th of November.  We dressed in Green and all classes took part in lessons and activities around the theme of litter and waste.  We also focused on our school garden and we looked at improving this area.

Junior Infants created a town called Juniorville using recyclable materials they gathered from home.

Senior Infants gathered recyclable materials, sorted and classified them before creating their own junk art inventions.

1st class planted some seeds for our school garden.  These included peas, brocolli and rocket which were the only seeds we could find which are in season during the winter.

2nd class planted some seeds for herbs which will be moved to our school garden in the spring.  These included chives, parsley and coriander.

3rd class visited the allotments in Fassaroe to get some ideas for us to use in our school garden.  They took notes on the variety of allotments included and they also chatted to some local gardeners who were tending to their produce.

4th class visited Bray recycling centre where they were given a guided tour.

5th class visited the seafront to pick litter.

6th class worked on improving our composting by making a wormery.  After a week we will add this to the compost bin to help with the breakdown of our waste.

This action day was such a huge success.  Thanks so much to everyone for getting involved.  Staying true to our Green Code “Working together as a team we can make Peter’s Green!”

We celebrated Maths Week with some active learning in the yard!

We’ve been learning about the Celts in History.

We had a great day doing the ‘Dragons’ Den’ with Salesforce.

We have been coding lots!

We had a brilliant day out in Bray Emmets too.

We are doing work on sustainability and care for the environment.

On Wednesday, the senior boys set off for what was to be a fantastic day of football in the Emmets blitz.  They encountered some tough competition in their three matches.

First up they took on Kilcoole and were unlucky to fall short by 2 points.  Following this, the boys dug deep to show superb character in coming back and winning their final two games.  The defence were super solid with great communication and team work on show.  Some fantastic scores by Des, Dylan F, Dean T and Nathan greatly helped the boys on their way.  Well done Peters!!!

We would like to say a huge thanks to everybody in all classes who volunteer to pick litter on the yard during break and lunch time.  Thanks to these efforts, there is seldom a scrap of litter floating about.  It is getting more and more difficult to find litter to pick:)

This September we began keeping a school garden.  With help from Stephen we prepared our raised beds.  He helped us sow some strawberries.

Our potatoes and strawberries in the raised beds.

We throw our weeds into the compost bin. We were told to keep some green mixed in with our fruit.

We look forward to adding more fruit, vegetables and maybe even herbs to the garden over the coming months.


Well done to our poster and slogan competition winners Tadhg, Jerrry and Aaron.

Well done also to Elif, Chloe Fitzpatrick and AJ.  Well done to everybody for getting involved, it was so hard to choose the winners!

Finally, we are in the process of planning our Green Schools Action day which will take place on the 10th of November.  We have lots of fun activities planned for all classes.

Welcome back to the first All Star Attenders blog post of the new school year. For those new to the school, as you probably know, we work really hard on improving attendance here in the school every year, aiming to have children in school as much as possible. Every month classes compete against each other for best attendance, with the winning class receiving an awesome prize. We also acknowledge the great efforts of individual pupils who have perfect attendance each month in our All Star Attenders post. Teachers also reward students individually for attendance throughout the year and we run individual prizes on different months throughout the year – such as our cinema month, pencil case week and Easter egg award. Stay tuned for news of our next exciting competition…

So here are the winners for this month. The overall class winners for September with best attendance were……Ms. Wemyss 1st Class. Ms. Wemyss class chose to have a “Pizza Party” which took place on Friday. The class enjoyed Four Star Pizza and treats as well as a mini disco. If you’re in Ms. Wemyss class you can check this out on her Class Dojo. Well done to 1st Class. Great to see them win it this year after coming so close so many times last year!

Check back every month for class winners, attendance competitions and a list of our All Star Attenders. Well done to all of our attendance heroes this month whose names can be found below:
