We wish Sixth Class all the best in Secondary School


We’re nearly finished national.
We don’t have long to go.
Although we say we won’t miss this place,
deep down inside we know.

We’ll miss the lovely art-work.
We’ll miss the fun and friends.
We’ll miss the jr. infants.
We’ll miss the jelly pens.

Well soon enough it will be
time for us to say goodbye.
I really can’t believe how fast
the years have went by.

I can’t wait for secondary
But down inside I know,
I’m really going to miss this place
And I’m really sad to go.

My school poem
Looking back on the last 8 years,
Overcoming our first day fears
When I’m older and I’m looking back,
I’ll remember I had great craic.

In school, friends were made,
Things were said.
Work was done and
We had great fun.

Now that I’m at the end,
A goodbye to this school I will send.
The last 8 years have gone so fast,
Now I’m going to secondary at last

With secondary school near,
Back to the first day fear
I hope I keep in touch with my friends,
Even when primary school ends.

Basketball Ireland

In March, sixth class travelled to NUIG to take part in a basketball tournament.  What a fun day!
We met NUIG basketball players and Mr. Gerry Kelly, the president of Basketball Ireland!


With the help of Brendan Smith, the children in fifth and sixth class have started programming using Scratch.  Scratch is a visual programming language that makes it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music and art and share these creations on the web.
Stay posted for some fabulous creations by the children in Woodford NS!
