We are busy here in Clontuskert, getting ready for Halloween. The children in both the Junior & Senior rooms have created some very Spooky decorations in art class, the school is looking extremely creepy.
The senior room helped Miss Stokes to design & carve a pumpkin for the school. We weren’t too keen on the texture or smell from the inside of the pumpkin but the end result was worth the mess!
Today as part of Maths Week, the 5th & 6th Class took part in a Maths Trail around the school.
We worked in teams to discover maths in our environment & to figure out the answers to all the questions. We worked hard and had good fun too!
Today, some of our students were invited to Garbally College for the launch of the Galway, Science & Technology Festival 2016. We got to see how important Science & Technology are in the world today and to see how science & technology in the classroom can lead to great things in the future. We watched the Science show which was great fun and we learned lots, we can’t wait to try out some of the experiments on our friends. The 2nd, 3rd and 6th class represented our school brilliantly by exhibiting their Junior First Lego League projects.
Thank you to all involved!

On Friday we held a Jersey Day for Action Aid to help raise much needed funds for the people in Haiti who have been devastated by Hurricane Matthew. All the children and parents made such a fantastic effort to donate. Thank you to everyone, it was a great success and lovely to see both club and county colours too!
Well done to Clontuskert Parents Association for a very successful and enjoyable Card Game. Thank you to all the people who supported and donated prizes for the School Fund Raiser.
Today 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th class went to Ballinasloe Library where we met author Dave Rudden.
Dave’s first novel ‘Knights of the Borrowed Dark’ was announced as the selection for One Book One Dublin and is currently being adapted for film. He read excerpts from his novel, which the children loved. He gave us lots of tips and tricks to improve our writing skills and he took questions from the children. He is truly a talented storyteller and we look forward to reading his books in the future. Thanks to Ballinasloe Library and Dave Rudden for a very enjoyable morning!
