The pupils in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th were busy in Visual Arts this month. They worked together to design a biodiversity flag for the school. This took alot of planning and much discussion. There was much debate at the editing stage. All pupils were actively involved and enjoyed working as a group on this project. Well done to all the pupils !

During this week the pupils of Dangan N.S. got the opportunity of doing a maths trail. This trail allowed the children to develop their knowledge & understanding of maths. The pupils were split into groups and given some maths questions to resolve both inside and outside of the school buildings. The pupils were actively learning while working in their groups. The dry weather ably assisted as well.

Sports Day brought great fun and enjoyment this year again. We had many gold, silver and bronze medallists. Jackie- our hurling teacher- and Rebecca -our learning support teacher- were only too happy to present the medals and receiving their medals from any of these two lovely ladies made them all the more special.

Our School TourJune 20th, 2014
This year we stayed local when it came to our school tour. The Play Area at the Inn at Dromoland provided a very child friendly experience of physical activity followed by a meal. At the School Of Falconry at Dromoland the children got the opportunity to hold harris hawks and watch them soar and swoop from an individual to the tree and back down again. They also got to see owls and peregrine falcons and they were taken for a tour of the walled gardens by the head gardener in Dromoland. Finally we had a very enjoyable trip to the new O’Regan Park in Newmarket – On – Fergus.
