September proved to be very exciting month for fourth class with two particularly popular trips out of the classroom. A rare opportunity to support our international soccer team proved to be a terrific surprise for the children when announced. After the shortest of treks to Knockgriffen Park, the children of fourth class provided fantastic vocal support to spur the Irish U17 team to a memorable 3-2 win over Turkey.
The enthusiasm of the children was again obvious during a different type of trip to yet another local landmark. On this occasion the children were treated to an event celebrating 100 years of the story telling genius of Roald Dahl at Midleton Library. Here, the children were given the chance to discuss their favourite Roald Dahl character creations, and listen to excerpts taken from some of his classics.
