Suir Art Project

We have been lucky to have been part of the artist in residence scheme.  A very big thank you to Magueritte Kent who has been fantastic and spent many long hours sharing her skills and techniques with the children. The past few months there has been trojan work in every room to produce a tapestry and posters which will be displayed in the County Museum in Clonmel.

Go check it out!!! 

The children’s work has been themed on the wildlife and seasons on the River Suir.

We have had Magueritte Kent to the school every Friday to share her skills and techniques with the children to produce a tapestry which will be displayed in the County Museum in Clonmel.

Nature Walk

We had a lovely sunny day for our nature walk in Kilcash woods last week. Pupils from 3rd to 6th were given the task of finding native hedgerow plants and trees on our walk. Some of the favourite plants were fuschia and ferns, favourite trees were sweet chestnut and the oak tree. We gathered leaves and fruit from different trees.  Some trees were felled so we talked about what trees are used for and we looked at the rings of the cut trunks to tell their age. We enjoyed our Autumn walk in nature.
