The Jes Social Outreach programme is starting this month. We went swimming for the first time last Friday and pupils got to meet their partners for this year. TY students who are involved in art activities and in playground activities are due to visit on Thursday to meet the pupils they will be working and playing with throughout the year. We look forward to another year of cooperation with Coláiste Iognáid and getting to know the TY students. Click here for more information on the Social Outreach programme.
Below are some photos of cookery classes with senior classes during September. We explored the many ways we can use fruit and vegetables in cooking and learned to identify a range of fruits and vegetables and discussed how they are grown.
We made potato salad from potatoes grown in our school garden. We used berries to make smoothies and fruit jelly and apples from Mary Loughman's garden to make apple crumble and baked apples. The pupils enjoyed the end result and had lots of practice peeling, slicing, stirring ingredients and using kitchen equipment.
