Dancing With The Stars

All in Scoil an Chroí Ró-Naofa, Urlingford NS wish our past pupil Aidan 'Taggy' Fogarty and his dance partner Emily Barker the very best in this year's Dancing with the Stars competition. Hopefully it is time for another All-Ireland win for Taggy, this time in sequins rather than Black and Amber! Good Luck Aidan and Emily!

Sixth Class Christmas Construction & Fifth and Sixth Classes Coding!

We created wintery Christmas villages with Ms. Tynan and Ms. Horan. We used our villages as a stimulus to create poems based on the themes of winter and Christmas. Ms. Tynan gave us templates for the buildings and we got creative!!


5th and 6th Classes Hour of Code

Ms. Langan and Ms. Dunphy taught us an “hour of code”. We really enjoyed making our own "Minecraft" codes and working through all the challenges in groups.

Third Class News!

Third Class visit Fennor Hill Care Facility!

Third Class, accompanied by their teacher Ms O'Meara, and Ms O'Toole visited the newly opened Fennor Hill Care Facility to sing Carols and play some Christmas songs for the residents of the facility. They were warmly welcomed and really enjoyed performing for everyone. The day went so well, it may become an annual event!!


They also made Gingerbread Men in the afternoon. What a fun day in school!

Red to Racism Day 2019.

Last Friday, we had our second 'Red to Racism' Day. As part of our understanding of Global Citizenship with the Green Schools, we celebrate the many nationalities that make up our school. We have 20 nations represented in our school from all parts of the world! Indeed, we have a link to each of the six inhabited continents! (no one from Antartica yet!!) The children loved dressing in red and the school was a sea of colour as we celebrated being one school from many places!
