Mr. Frank O’Donoghue and Mr. Andy Kelly, co-authors of a recent book on Tramore, visited the Third and Fourth classes on Wednesday 17 January. They showed the children a slideshow of over twenty old photographs of Tramore. Many of the photographs were taken around 1900. Andy brought in a camera from the 1890s, and explained how it works (it still works!). Andy and Frank pointed out details in the photographs and mentioned interesting facts about Tramore. They also kindly gave two copies of their book to the school.

We encourage the children from Third and Fourth classes to recreate an old photograph. They can use any of the photos included in the gallery below (image credits included on each photo). Otherwise the boys and girls are welcome to choose another old photo – that they have permission to use – in a recognisable part of Tramore. We hope to create an exhibition of all of these photos – old alongside present day photos. Get snapping!

Great credit must go to 5th class and Senior Infants for their wonderful performances for all the pupils and families of those involved. A huge amount of dedication and practice went into the preparation for the show. During the summer term, members of 5th class ‘buddied up’ with Senior Infants and taught them drumming skills, techniques and rhythms.
All the musicians and performers did themselves very proud and they served up a lively and entertaining show in St.Joseph’s Hall. Apart from various types of drums and other percussion instruments there was fabulous dancing and singing on display by the very talented children.
It was a great way to end what was a productive and fun school year. Well done to all the Glór na Mara musicians!

On the 11th of March, St. Joseph’s Hall came alive with colour and energy as 5th class held their “Caring for Our World Open Day”.
Over the last number of weeks, 5th class has been bringing the world to their classroom through their participation in the Our World Irish Aid Awards. They studied about the 9 partner countries that Irish Aid are helping. They focused in particular on Millennium Development Goal 7, Ensure Environmental Sustainability. They looked at this from both a global and a local perspective…how our actions affect people in developing countries.
MDG group
There were 15 stands which were run by the students and which outlined all of the campaigns they had organised and what they had learned throughout their project. All of the other classes had the opportunity to visit each stall and learn more about what Irish Aid are doing and also what they could do to protect the environment for future generations.
No Waste Day Group
5th Class ran a No Waste Day campaign (which is still ongoing) for staff and pupils which has seen a marked reduction in the amount of waste in lunches.
Grow it Yourself
They learned about Food miles and began growing their own tomatoes in class, as well as helping in the school garden.
In conjunction with the other 5th class, they organised a Walk to School Wednesday competition throughout the school.
Anti-Litter Animations
Junior Classes enjoy Litter Animations
They created clay movie animations with an artist from Waterford County Council to highlight the anti-litter message in a fun and interesting way. They invited classes from Junior Infants to First Class to view all the animations on the Interactive Whiteboard.
Parents visit Open Day
It was such an fantastic experience sharing the knowledge with the other children throughout the school, members of the community including the Mayor and their parents.
