At 9am sharp, the bus left Gowran to bring 5th and 6th class to Tramore. We were all very excited. When we arrived at the Surf School, we all got a safety talk about what to do and then we got our wetsuits on, picked up our surfboards and headed down to the beach.
I would say nearly all of us fell off the boards at some point but then we got used to it and it was great craic!!!
After that, we went with Glen to the rock pools to look for crabs, fish and other rock pool residents and we all found something.
Later on that afternoon, we went to the amusements. A few of the favourite rides were the Waltzers, Future Dance and the Frisbee.
It was a great day out!

6th Class visited Gowran Abbey Nursing Home again this week and this time entertained the residents with a variety of talents in the glorious sunshine of the courtyard. The children brought their talents in abundance including: singing, violin playing, Irish dancing, joke telling, a tune on the tin whistle, a poem recital, a solo guitarist and our very own class choir to name but a few! Well done 6th Class! A very talented bunch we have!
To mark the end of violin lessons with Victoria this year, all classes were invited to the hall to listen to their classmates playing their various tunes on the violin. They were just fantastic!
On Saturday 12th May 2018 James Brennan, Matthew McAviney, Yonas Kenny, Jake Byrne and Ruairí Phelan represented our school in the Pangea Maths Olympics Competition in Trinity College in Dublin.
The first round took place in 5th Class in school and the above mentioned were selected to represent Gowran NS in the finals in Trinity College, Dublin. There were 120 students at the final in total from 5th Class, 6th Class, 1st and 2nd year. This was an incredible achievement in itself for our young boys.
We would like to congratulate James, Matthew, Yonas, Jake and Ruairí for representing our school and doing us all proud!
On Friday 18th, 6th class went up to Gowran Abbey Nursing Home.
Over the next few weeks we will be visiting the Nursing Home once a week. We will take part in a variety of activities with the residents such as planting flowers, arts and crafts, board games, charades and story telling to name a few, in an organised and supervised setting.
This is a great way for us to become actively involved in our local community.
