5th and 6th are in full swing since returning after Christmas.

We were straight into The RDS Young Scientist and preparation for Confirmation was underway immediately. Congratulations to all the candidates.

We said goodbye to Mr Lynam last Thursday the 16th of March and thanked him for his 5 week placement with us.

We discovered lots about WW1 and 2 and created some beautiful ‘Blitz Art’. We also completed the ‘Boy in the stripped pyjamas’. What a story. Poor Shmuel and Bruno.

As always, sport has been to the fore in 5th and 6th and the highlight has to have been the Girls’ soccer team winning the Westmeath Sports Star of the Year on March 3rd at a gala event in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. This was a super achievement and a great night was had by all 5 tables of Ardnagrath pupils and supporters.

Check back later for more updates on schoolwork and activities in the near future.
