On Tuesday night 6th class had their graduation ceremony. We had a great night where the children received certificates for completing primary school, a lovely BNS pen, new hoodies and a framed photo of 6th class! We had a pizza party with all the families outside the school. The 6th class will be missed! Check out the picture of the new hoodies with all of 6th class's signatures below.
It was all about ice cream in the 5th and 6th classroom this week as the children created their own clay ice creams. Then, on Tuesday last, they were lucky enough to be visited by the ice cream van, where they each got a lovely 99.
Today we said goodbye to Karyn, our football coach for the pas 7 years here in Burnfort National School. We really enjoyed our last session with Karyn, having a penalty shoot out and playing a game of Gaeilc football to end our session.
We had so much fun on our school tour last Tuesday with the Ballyhass Adventure Group in Coachford. Everyone in 5th and 6th class agreed that it was the best event of the year! The favourite activity amongst the class was the Aquapark where the children enjoyed jumping of the inflatable structures, into the lake. Another highlight of the school tour was the high ropes which was a giant obstacle course with trampoline rope, slides and big bouncy balls. We finished off the day with some team building exercises and archery. All the children agreed they would love to go back again soon!
