Room 8 celebrated history month by learning about the GPO. We also learned about St Canice's tower and one of our students made a project on Biddy Early. A local historian also brought the senior end on a walk to show us the city walls and also taught us about Alice Kytler.

Room 8 decorated christmas cards,each student designed there own cards which make them unique. These cards will be sent to the residents of Drakelands nursing home and this gesture will make sure no one is forgotten at christmas.

Room 8s mosaic advent wreath art work.

These were made by the students cutting up pieces of coloured paper and gluing onto the page.  The colours all represent the different parts of the wreath, three purple candles and one pink candle,green for the actual wreath and orange for the flame. This process makes all the different pieces of art unique to the individual student. The art work compliments our senior end christmas tree and has got our school into the christmas spirit. 




Room 8s pumpkin design for Halloween. Each student helped in the designing, cutting and painting of the pumpkin.

Room 8 runs the school tuck shop which opens on Fridays for the whole school. 1st the students make a list, then they estimate how much the stock will all cost then we go to local shops to source and purchase our stock. Once we have bought our stock we head back to school to set up and get ready for our customers to arrive. The students take responsibility for all sales from setting prices to taking money and giving back the correct change. The tuck shop provides a great experience of shopping,budgeting and practicing our social skills.


Here is our Room 8 student Jack Campion with a fully stocked tuck shop ready to greet his customers.
