We have been learning about Thoor Balylee and have made models, designed pictures and painted our sketches of the castle. We are going to visit Thoor Ballylee on the 21st of September 2017. A big thank you to the parents and older siblings who helped with the models and any pictures done at home. The work done was fantastic and the children really enjoyed the experience.
Since we came back to school we have been focusing on friendship and inclusion. To this end we have been assigned buddies in the junior room, we have a buddy bench in the yard to ensure everybody is included and we have designed posters and slogans to encourage friendship.
A big welcome back to our First, Second and Third class children. We are very excited to be back and are looking forward to a great year in St. Thomas N.S. We have had a very exciting start to our school year with our Senior and Minor hurlers winning the All Ireland finals. We were very lucky that the Galway captain, David Burke and Mr. Cooney brought the Liam Mc Carthy Cup to our school. We all thoroughly enjoyed the occasion.
