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.

On Thursday, 19th April we had our annual beach clean-up at Cockleshell Beach, Tralee. It is a local beach near the lock gates of the Blennerville Canal.  Although the weather on the day was showery we decided to go ahead with the clean-up. 

The group consisted of thirty-five 5th class pupils accompanied by Mr. Morgan,  Mr. O’ Brien and Mr. O’ Sullivan.

Kerry County Council supplied us with litter pickers, vests, gloves and plastic bags.  The bus dropped us at Cockle shell Beach at 11.00 a.m. 

We spent two hours cleaning the whole beach.  The rubbish mainly consisted of plastic bottles, cans, wrappers, glass bottles and plastic containers.

 

 

 

 

 

Some unusual items found included an old television, a battered microwave, a rusted safe, a mattress, a sliotar and a child’s buggy.   We filled 20 bags of rubbish which was collected by the Litter Warden.

Mr.  O’ Brien, Principal took lots of photographs.  It was a great day out for everyone and we all had a really good time.
