The boys and girls really enjoyed their puppet workshop. Fantastic creative talents on display by all. Well done boys and girls.
The three generations of Feigherys proudly displaying their fresh farm produce at Offaly Enterprise Day today. Well done to Billy Junior for all his hard work in putting his project together. For a young man he is showing great business acumen already. The Feighery business of producing the freshest of farm produce lies in safe hands. Good man Billy!
All of us in Broughall NS were delighted to welcome our baby chicks into the world as they hatched out last week. The boys and girls are showing great care and respect for our new arrivals as they look after them in the early stages of their lives. Well done boys and girls.
The children were delighted to welcome our K/K minor contingent who were part of the victorious Offaly minor hurling team. What great role models these young men are.
Another active day in Broughall NS. Today we also had the opening of our active walkway in the school. Well done boys and girls.
Today all children took part in a Biodiversity Workshop. The boys and girls really enjoyed learning all about the different types of trees and habitats within our school grounds. Thanks to Judith from Biodiversity for Schools for conducting the workshop.
Our school garden is almost complete. Many thanks to all those who helped out with filling the planting beds and pathways - fantastic community spirit displayed by all in giving of their time so generously. The boys and girls of Broughall NS will without doubt make great use of this facility in the future.
In school we are learning all about the lifecycle of a chicken. We are using our incubator to give the children the experience of seeing chick hatch out. The boys and girls are great at keeping an eye on the temperature of the incubator and making sure that the water is topped up regulary. Thanks a million Kevin for supplying us with the eggs and answering lots of questions from the boys and girls.
The boys and girls began their 6 week programme of athletics coaching today. With hurling coaching taking place every Wednesday also - the month of May will be a very active month for all at Broughall NS. Many thanks to our coaches Kevin and Emmett for all their hard work.
