Mr Mc Gowan’s 4th class designed and constructed Norman Castles recycling amongst other things, used cardboard and toilet roll tubes in the process.  Do you like my Norman Castle?  It took me two weeks to complete. A big shout out to my fantastic parents who helped me begin and finish off this very enjoyable and interesting project.

Friendship Week 

Scoil Cholmcille  hosted the national initiative, “Friendship Week” last week. During the week, the pupils  participated in lessons about bullying, staying safe online and what to do if they feel they are being bullied. Facilitators from the Loft in Letterkenny  provided workshops(funded by Parent Association) in class to show children in the 4th, 5th and 6th classes how they can be safer when online.

Below are some entries from various classes for our Friendship Week Competition. The pupils had to design a poster showing a superhero defeating bullies or compose a poem/rap about bullying.
