We won a camcorder and 3 laptops!

Posted by Amy On May - 30 - 2013

We were all excited when Pádraig Fitzsimons came from the Primary Planet magazine to present our award for winning their TPP video advert competition.  The Primary Planet is Ireland’s first magazine for children and we get it at school. We won 3 laptops and a camcorder for our school. GreenIT were the sponsors of the competition and our teacher won a weekend away. In second place came Windgap N.S from Kilkenny followed by Scoil Chóca Naofa, Kilcock, Co. Kildare.

Then we had a raffle for a laptop for one of the pupils. Everyone in the Senior room who helped make the video had their name in a hat. I couldn’t believe it when Pádraig Fitzsimons pulled my name out!!

I was very happy. Then Rebecca’s name was pulled out for a TPP hoodie. A photographer took photos and everyone had a great day. 🙂 View our winning video advert here. By Amy, 6th class.

As we look back on the past week we remember what a great adventure we had. We travelled by car, plane, bus, metro, RER train, TGV, coach, tram, boat and taxi. And, of course, we walked a lot!

We had a brilliant week in Paris and Strasbourg. My favourite trip was to the Eiffel Tower. 🙂 Justin.

We had a really good week in France.  It was nice to meet all the French pupils and visit their school. 🙂  Rebecca.

We had such a fun week in France. We saw so much, and we all got to do some shopping in Gap :-p Amy.

I really enjoyed France this week. We saw lots of different things and they all were really good! There were lots of great opportunities. Really enjoyed visiting the school in Strasbourg. Thanks Mr. Ó Beirn!  Rachel 🙂

It was great to visit France!! It was such a good opportunity to visit all the wonderful things. We saw things from markets to the Eiffel Tower. Marie 😀

It was great fun. Ice-cream in France is great. We were really lucky and got to see famous buildings such as the Palace of Versailles and the Eiffel Tower. All in all a great trip.  ENDA 😛

Had a wonderful time in France. Have great memories to cherish. You’re a fantastic group to be with. Thanks for bringing me. Sandie 🙂

GAA football match in Strasbourg

Posted by Rebecca On March - 28 - 2013

This morning we visited our host school and played a football match.  They had looked up the rules and videos on Youtube. They even watched last year’s All-Ireland final – Donegal v. Mayo! The game finished in a draw: 3-3 to 3-3. Gerald, our Comenius director from Austria, spoke to us on some future activities planned for next year. Then we had a party! The Mayor of Strasbourg was there. We were given gifts and everyone was so lovely. We presented the children with two board games that were made in Ireland – Discover Ireland & Discover Europe. We also had presents for the teachers. One of the teachers, Mathieu, asked Marie what was the best and worst part of the trip. She said the worst part was leaving France. 🙂

We got the TGV back to Paris and travelled back to our hotel on the metro. We did some shopping in GAP and Monoprix. Then we went to a restaurant for dinner. Afterwards we visited the Eiffel Tower one last time to see it lit up at night. It was beautiful. On our way back to the hotel we went to McDonalds for McFlurrys. We have an early start tomorrow and a coach will collect us at the hotel to take us to the airport.  We hope to arrive in Knock Airport at 12 o’clock.

The two teams line out at 9am for our GAA football game in Hoenheim.
