Fifth Class

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Fifth class learned about the tradition of making St Patrick’s Day badges from the National Museum of Ireland. We learned what symbols were used and what they mean. We used this information to help us design our own badges using recycled materials. We then wore them to our whole school Cruinniú and Parade and they looked amazing!

Fifth Class Entry to Different Families Same Love Competition 2022

As part of our SPHE Curriculum we entered the INTO Different Families Same Love Competition. We learned that families in Ireland today are diverse, consisting of mother- and father-headed families, single parent families, families headed by members of the extended family, step-parent families, adoptive and foster families, families headed by cohabiting couples, bereaved families, adult-only families, families from different cultures, and lesbian- and gay-headed families. However, LGBT young people and children from families with same-sex parents often experience homophobic and transphobic bullying and prejudice in their schools and communities. In order to combat this in our community we explored the topics of Human Rights and legislation in relation to this, bullying, responding to bullying and finally how we can apply all of this to our own lives. Our artwork represents all the diverse family types we come from and the unity we have as a class community.
