Titanic Theme in Third!

For the last few weeks we've been learning all about the Titanic. We began by reading our class novel: Titanic - A Voyage from Drumshee and the children all agreed it was a really exciting but sad story. We researched different topics, e.g. food and clothes aboard and we even found the original menu from the ship! We finished off the week with some floating and sinking experiments and finally we made our own Titanic replicas out of clay and painted them. Below are some pictures of these activities! A special thank you to Eric who very kindly put together a Lego Titanic and brought it in for us to see! Well done to everyone for all their hard work. 😊

Cross Country Championships 2017

Today we competed in the West Mayo Cross Country Championships and had a fantastic day. The children represented their school so well and did us all proud! The sun was shining in Ballyvary and all in all it was a great day out. Well done to everyone that competed and to our subs! We're already looking forward to next year! 😊😊

Special Visitors

We were absolutely thrilled to get two special visitors to Derrywash yesterday. Benny and Marion Martin were the principal and teacher in Derrywash until 1991 and dedicated so many years to our school. Many of our parents, past pupils and even a few teachers (!) will have fond memories of their time in Derrywash. Many thanks to them for popping in for a visit and bringing us for an unexpected trip down memory lane!
