Our school garden and environment in May

May 26th, 2017 by Ms. Considine

May is a beautiful time of the year and our garden is looking great. A big thank you to Jason for his wonderful painting job and well done to Ms Ward for choosing the lovely bright colour. The potatoes, peas and runner beans are thriving. Mr Molloy’s class planted carrotts and we also have some herbs growing. The flowers brighten up the school environment and again thank you to Jason for his careful watering of them. STOP, LOOK and ADMIRE.

Flag Raising Ceremony in Talbot Senior

May 25th, 2017 by Ms Wynne

On the 24th May 2017, Mr Molloy and some members of our Green team represented our school in the Helix Theatre at the An Taisce Green Flag Presentation Ceremony. This was a great achievement for our school as it was our 6th green flag. This flag was awarded to our school for our whole school work on the theme of GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP. Both staff and children have really enjoyed working on this theme which enabled us to discover how Green schools work has positively influenced people and environments worldwide while revising the previous Litter and waste theme.

We celebrated the event with music and singing led by Mr O’Donnell and our special guest Fr. Joe.

April in our school garden

April 10th, 2017 by Ms. Considine

April has been a busy time in our school garden. The daffodils are still blooming and giving a lovely show of colour to a corner of the garden. Just before the Easter holidays some classes including Mr Gilmartin’s planted potatoes. These potatoes will be ready for harvesting in September. Children from Ms Ní Dhuill’s and Ms Nallen’s classes planted herbs, margoram, fennel and parsley.

Work has started in our garden. Children in the 6th classes have planted early crop potatoes. The seed potatoes were first left to sprout in the classroom and then planted in the raised bed in the garden. They will be ready for harvesting in June. Also the plants in the butterfly patch are beginning to bloom.

June 21st, 2016 by Mr. Stuart and tagged ,

Here are some photos of today. Click on them twice for a closer look.

How lucky we are to be able to go visit the Phoenix Park, only a few minutes away.

Thank you to all these people…

  1. Mr Molloy for organising the trip,
  2. Sr Catherine for driving some of us,
  3. Ray the driver (he got us there, and back, safe and sound)
  4. the tour guides, including Bernie from Clondalkin, who taught us about life back in the old days in castles like Ashtown Castle,
  5. your parents for giving you permission,
  6. Mr Ruddy for paying for the bus and the ice-creams 🙂
  7. and of course… 
  8. you! Not only have you worked so well all year for your class. Today you showed again how wonderful you are—playing so peacefully with each other, listening so well to the guides, cleaning up so so well “for the boys in green” :), and just being your wonderful selves.

Hope you like the photos.

Grow Your Own!

April 20th, 2016 by Mr Byrne

Lately we have been growing and planting water cress, spinach, peas, lettuce, chives, rosemary and scallions in our class. We grew them from seed using pots and compost. We also recently planted (with Ms Considine’s assistance) early potato seeds which we hope to harvest and eat in June.

We learned that growing your own vegetables and herbs requires sunshine, good soil, space, warmth, water (rain) and plenty of time and effort!

Hopefully in a few week we will plant our class herbs and vegetables out in the school garden.
