Trip to Tallaght Library

Trip to Tallaght Library

      Last Wednesday 14/11/18, we went to Tallaght library. We walked from Sacred Heart to the library. First, we took a seat and met two ladies who would show us around. After we looked at some picture books and we talked about library cards. We got a tour of the library and we learned that the last name of the author is where the book has to go. There were sections from A-Z. For example a book by David Walliams would go in the ‘W’ section. The ladies showed us all of the different types of books that you can get. We found some books that we can use...

Making Potions for Halloween

Making Potions for Halloween

Bake Sale Day 2018

Bake Sale Day 2018

At the end of the 2018 school year, 6th class held a bake sale to raise money for two special causes. The children managed to raise just over €1,000.

A set of yoga mats were bought for our new yoga classes. Some of this money will also be spent on the school toilets. Peter McVerry Trust is a charity set up by Fr Peter McVerry to reduce homelessness and the harm caused by drug misuse and...

Autumn in third class

Autumn in third class

We are learning all about autumn at the moment in third class. Here is a recount that we wrote in Ms. Greene’s class about our recent autumn walk! On Monday, our class went on an autumn walk to look for the signs of autumn around the school. First, we were all put into pairs. We all got a checklist and a clipboard. Next, we walked out to the field and school gardens and we looked around for some autumn signs. We saw lots of different coloured leaves, some berries, conkers, conker husks, acorns, pine cones and some seeds. Then we collected some leaves so that...

Trick Or Treat for Temple Street!

On the 27th of October Sacred Heart raised €360 for Temple Street, children’s hospital.It was a scary day in here! We dressed up as witches, ghouls and more. It was an amazing day. The children got to bring in some treats and in the afternoon our teachers let us play party games and watch a movie. It was a great start to our Mid Term break and also a very important cause. Thank you to everybody who supported us and brought in their €2. We look forward to supporting their annual campaign again next year:)
