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!
