MS Readathon… Wow!!

We have spent since the middle of October until the middle of November reading and raising funds for  the MS Readathon. It is our first year taking part and we raised a staggering €585 euro by reading over 200 books.

A huge thank you to all who sponsored us in our reading for this worthwhile cause.

We’d like to thank everyone who supported us again this year in the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox appeal. There were 20 boxes delivered last Friday and we know they’ll bring some small joy to a child this Christmas.

Bronze Art

Marie Brett from the Heritage in School scheme came to Urhan on Thursday 16th November. She showed us some artefacts from the Bronze Age and we explored how important gold was in Ireland during that time. We each made a replica of some Bronze Age jewellery using an embossing and etching technique on copper and aluminium foil.

You can see some of our work below.
