SIXTH CLASS JUMBLE AND CAKE SALE
On Friday, 17th February, our class held a jumble sale and coffee morning in aid of Crumlin Childrens Hospital and Cara Girls Rescue Centre in Kenya.  Some of us came into school early to set our stall up. We had 10 stalls altogether and the coffee morning aswell.  There was a face-painting stall, a jersey stall, a cake and fruit cups stall, bric-a-brac stall, nail and face painting studio, book stall, dvd and games stall, a virtual reality stall and a toy stall.  We had sold raffle tickets. We all had our own job at the jumble sale.  Julia and Ellen were in charge of face-painting,  Dylan and Jaden sold the jerseys; Dawn, Mrs Fleming and I were selling cakes and  buns; Adam and Ms Jenkins were selling some healthy fruit cups; Anthony and Joshua were at the bric-a-brac stall; Emily Fleming and Eoin Corcoran were selling books; Noel and Peter were at the dvds' and games stall; Séan Corcoran ran the virtual reality stall; Cian, Conor and TJ were selling the toys; Holly, Ethan and Kamil were selling the raffle tickets and Fia, Emily Frazer and Séan Costello-Kelly were working at the coffee morning.  It was a very enjoyable day and we raised €2,366 for two great charities.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who donated items for sale, raffle prizes and also cakes etc.
Special thanks to all the parents who helped out on the day and especially in our coffee dock area.
The support of everyone who attended and contributed in any way is very much appreciated  by both Sixth Class and our whole school.

DEBATING COMPETITION


T
his year some pupils from Sixth class took part in a debating competition. After many trials, the team was selected. The team was made up of Keira Reilly, Sarah Curran, Emily Fleming, Julia Sibbald, Ellen Frazer and Seán Corcoran. Our first debate was against Tullow Boys School. The motion for the debate was “Television is the greatest educational asset in the home.”  We were opposing the motion and Tullow Boys were proposing the motion. We travelled over to Tullow Boys School on the 21st of October and the debate started at 10.30am. We tried our best and on the day we came out on top. Afterwards, Mrs Gavin treated us to some ice cream. Then we went back to school and everyone congratulated us on our win. It was such an enjoyable day.

For the next round of the debate, we took on Ballon National School at home. The motion for this debate was “Primary School Children Should Be Required to Do Chores around the House.”  The debate started at 11.30am on the 20th of December. It was a very close debate but Ballon won on the day. Even though we were a little bit disappointed, we were happy with how we did. Afterwards we sang a few songs to win the remaining crisps and drinks. It was such a great experience for us.
