Well done to 5th class on their outer space studies! They researched and presented to the class an area of space that interested them.
Our Daily Mile
The sun came out this morning
As we completed our daily mile
14 laps we did together
It only took us a while
The morning dew was still about
Filling the air with its lovely scent
The summer air was blowing
As we started our event
We could hear the birds chirping
And the chatting of the people
While glistening in the distance
Was Durrow church’s steeple
We could feel the soil beneath our feet
While we walked around the track
As we were nearly finished
We had to pick up the slack
Before we went inside
tiredness hit the class
but when we went to do our work
Our senses were in full blast

Hello! Oisín from 5th Class I.C.T. Committee here. I would like to introduce you all to the booklet
that we will be giving to next years Junior Infants. It is our hope that it will help make their transition
to primary school easier.
We have compiled a quiz about the book (The 1000 Year Old Boy) that we are doing in the school book club, and want to share it with you! Good luck!
Hi, Philip from 5th class here.
We made an interactive quiz the other day and would like to share it with you! Play below, and best of luck!
The staff and children in Durrow NS really embraced Friendship Week. Apart from raising an amazing 376euro fro Amnesty International the children also shared some beautiful and very meaningful messages on our school friendship tree. Some of these messages were:
"Love is for everyone."
"Be honest with your friends."
"Treat your friends nicely, listen to their opinions and respect their choices."
"Be kind to everyone."
The children also created some beautiful art work for our school display boards. We also gave the children some time to just play games with some friends.....it's the simple things in life that can sometimes mean the most. Well done Durrow NS, your kindness knows no end!
Darragh did himself and Durrow school very proud at the Student Enterprise Awards in the Tullamore Court Hotel on April 2nd. He received a framed Certificate of Achievement, a €50 voucher and a gift pack. Darragh proudly spoke about his thriving business to anyone who stopped to chat. He was also given plenty of compliments on his stand and his eye catching displays. Darragh showed real entrepreneurial spirit on the day and sold 60 eggs and a huge batch of homemade buns. What better way for people to sample the produce! Well done Darragh, we're all very proud.
