Lios Cúram Christmas Wonderland

posted 21 Dec 2016, 05:42 by Eimear Guiney


Wednesday 21st December was a very special day as Lios Cúram was transformed into a magical Christmas Wonderland. The students and their families had a very special day with lots of activities from baking with Mrs Claus, making crafts in The Elves workshop, playing pin the tail on Rudolph and other exciting games, face-painting and a cinema. The Elderberry class a
lso got the chance to demonstrate their Science experiment which they are taking to the Primary Science Fair in Mary Immaculate College, Limerick in January.
 However the highlight of the day was a special visit from none other than SANTA himself!!! It was fantastic!
We would like to say a word of thanks to our volunteers for making this day so special. Thanks also to Dano's Supervalu who kindly donated selection boxes and to all those who donated decorations to help create the festive environment.
From all in Lios Cúram we wish you a happy Christmas and we look forward to many more exciting events in 2017.

Budding young gardeners in Lios Cúram

posted 3 Oct 2016, 10:26 by Eimear Guiney   [ updated 4 Oct 2016, 00:38 ]


Last Spring the students in The Sunshine Space decided to create their own garden and planted seeds to grow their own vegetables. They took very special care of the seeds and when they had germinated they transferred them to a bigger garden bed outside. They had great fun watering them and watching them grow week by week.
  (See below how our seeds grew)




                     

Bumper harvest
Since returning in September The Sunshine Space are very proud of their wonderful produce of courgettes, lettuce and carrots and took them home to have for dinner! Who knows next year they might even be off to the farmers market after this years success!!
