Just a few little snaps from our very successful Wacky walk. Well done to everyone who completed the 5 km circuit, some in fancy dress! Thank you to everybody who supported the event and our wonderful enthusiastic fundraising committee who organised it all.
I hope now that you have all had a taste of the beautiful Cross lake loop, you might be inspired to join the Parkrun which takes place every Saturday morning at 9.30am.
What a busy week we have all had! Well done to every pupil who participated to the best of their ability, throughout all of the various activities, organised for Active week 2018. A massive thank you to all the parents who got involved, be it helping out or participating. We really appreciate your support and the children loved watching you take part in the games also! Thank you also to our visiting coaches throughout the week! We look forward to working with you again next year! Here are a few snaps shots of the week!
We had great fun watching our little caterpillars transform into beautiful painted lady butterflies. Alas, it was time to say goodbye to Sky, Mary, Little flower, Missy and Frederick. We released them and waved goodbye, as we know they have such an important job to do now. Butterflies play a huge role in pollination, as do bees and wasps. So we need to look after them all, as best we can!
Our little friends will live for approximately 5 more weeks(max), laying their own little eggs elsewhere, for the cycle of life to start all over again.
It has been really interesting so far, observing the changes that have occurred in our caterpillars, in one week! They started off so tiny and look at them now. They have been feeding so well and alot of waste, called frass, is evident in the jars. They have shed their exoskeleton a few times also! Some of the caterpillars are making attempts to hang in their ‘j’ shape, which means that very soon they will have to be transferred to their butterfly habitat! Exciting! Before transferring, they will form a chrysalis and while in the butterfly habitat, the last stage of metamorphosis will occur over time , resulting in,fingers crossed, our beautiful painted lady butterfly’s emerging soon after! We will keep you posted!
On Friday March 16th, everyone in Inver N.S. dressed up, either in Green for St. Patrick’s Weekend or in their favourite character’s costume. We had a busy day from the word go. In the morning, we all participated in a chéile outside. We danced Cur Brog ar an asal, An Staicín Eorna, An Damhsa Mór and Tar Chugam. The sun stayed out for us throughout so we were delighted! After the small break, we had Fred, the magician perform for the whole school. He was wonderful and a lovely treat for all.
Following lunch, we held a wholeschool Tráth na nCeist. It was a busy day but lots of fun!
