Christmas 2015

What a fantastic few months the Junior boys have had in Ábalta! The boys settled easily back into their routines here in school, and it has been amazing to watch them flourish across so many areas! The boys have been working so hard, and have learned loads of new skills already this term!

However, we have still managed to have some fun in between all of our lessons! With trips to the café, exciting science lessons, trick or treating around the business park, Halloween parties, bowling and our recent trip to the Christmas market it’s hard to choose just one highlight from this term!

And how could we forget the fantastic visit we had from the one and only Keith Duffy? The boys were delighted to see him and it was great to show him around and show him some of the amazing things the boys have done this term! Christmas play practice has been in full swing over the last few weeks and the boys have been absolutely AMAZING!! And I know they will be amazing on the day!

Overall it has been a fantastic term, and all the hard work of the Junior team, Olivia and Maura has allowed for the boys to really reach their potential! I am really looking forward to seeing how much more they can achieve next term! 
Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!


July 2016

What a fantastic July 2016 the Junior class has had!! The boys have worked very hard but it hasn’t been all work and no play! We have had lots of fun on our many outings. Ben loved chilling out in Renville Park and playing in the sand in Loughwell pet farm, Ryan really enjoyed our trip to the Eye Cinema and our long walks to the shop. Conor loved going up and down the slides in Busy Bees and Danny loved the swings in Doughiska playground. Darragh loved watching the salmon fish go by in the aquarium and running around Monkey Business, Jacob enjoyed making wonderful puppets during art while Matthew really enjoyed walking on the rocks at Salthill Prom and all of the boys (and staff) LOVED our trip to the fabulous Jumplanes. We’ve also been busy celebrating birthday parties in the Junior Room. Jacob turned 6 and Ryan turned 8 and the whole school joined them to celebrate.
