Over the last few months Mr. Moloney’s pupils have been working very hard on their JEP project.  After much discussion and pitching their ideas to Dragon’s Den it was decided to produce a cookbook.  The pupils busied themselves collecting recipes from teachers, celebrities, politicians and family members.  We have recipes from Neven Maguire,   Enda Kenny,  Michael Healy-Rae, Joe Duffy, some Kerry footballers, Alan Quinlan , to name but a few.

The pupils had their showcase day on Friday, 11th March.  What was evident from their showcase presentation was the impact the programme has had on the pupils personal development, confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem. The pupils had a hands-on look at the world of business, the various challenges and pitfalls and how to overcome these problems by working together as a team.  The many strands of the primary school curriculum found expression through the various skills needed to bring a fledgling idea to final fruition.

Many thanks to , Fr. Patsy Lynch, School Chaplain, Garda Irene Riordan Community Garda, Colm Cooper,  the many people who attended and to the very many proud parents, grandparents and friends who were in attendance at the Showcase morning making it a very memorable occasion for the pupils.

Cookbooks are on sale from the school at a cost of €6 each or two for €10.

“We think we have some really interesting recipes and we would like to thank all those who contributed and all those who helped along the way”, said Mr. Moloney.

Wednesday, 18th May 2011 was National W.O.W. (Walk on Wednesday) Day.

Last November we conducted a Travel Survey within the school and were very disappointed with the following results:

 

After our W.O.W. day the survey showed a significant change in results:

This was a drop of 65% travelling by car.

A big,  thank you to all those who supported our W.O.W.  day and made it such a huge success.

Deirdre Walsh from Radio Kerry interviewed Mr. O’ Brien (Principal), Mr. Lyons and pupils from the Green Schools Committee.

She spoke to pupils who had walked to school and asked them a few questions about who they had walked to school with and where they had walked from, etc.

The pupils informed her of our Beach Clean-Up of Cockle Shell Beach, where we filled a total of 30 black refuse sacks with rubbish.  Ms. Walsh also asked  about our School Banner advertising our W.O.W. event which she had observed on her way into the school.
