For JEP this year every group created a power point on their products. We had to persuade the dragons to choose our own product.
The dragons were Ms McDonagh , Ms McHugh and Ms McNeive . After they arrived we all presented our power points and prototypes to them. When everyone had finished their presentation the dragons had a private meeting to discuss which product was the most suitable to sell to people.
The dragons gave all of the products positive feedback. Bring Along Bags was the product that the dragons chose. This product had the widest marketing out of all of the products. They can be designed as club or county colours.
We can’t wait to start designing and selling these bags to everyone!

We studied World War 1 in History. We learned all about the war and completed individual projects on this. We also wrote letters from the trenches. Why don't you read our work?
Ballintubber Abbey is located in County Mayo. It is a picturesque abbey surrounded by luscious green fields. It is the parish church for the locals of Ballintubber .
We arrived at school at 8:20 and hopped straight on the bus. We arrived in Ballintubber and were greeted by Fr. Fahey and the workers there .He told us the history about Ballintubber Abbey and brought us upstairs .They generously gave us hot chocolate and biscuits .The workers introduced themselves to us and told us all the fun facts about the Abbey.
We did some activities helping us see how we could use the gifts of the Holy Spirit .After a while they split us into groups and we all went outside to look at the beautiful sights .The workers told us some history about the outside of the Abbey. Mary, our teacher for the day, told us about Sean an Sagart’s Tree.
After a while we went back upstairs and did an activity and lit our candles .As a little gift they gave us a stone with a candle painted on it to take home with us .We said Thank you and went back on the bus .We arrived back at school and just made it on time before the school day had ended .We had a great day and really enjoyed it .

Internet safety was on Tuesday the 5th of February. The internet is very popular these days. Social media is in nearly everyones’, lives from people who are five to people who are sixteen. People spend an average of six and a half hours a day in front of screens.
But the internet isn’t always bad. People use it for research, homework & communication. Sometimes there are numerous people who pose as young children and make friends with vulnerable children.
If you are under thirteen you are legally not allowed to use social media platforms. Therefore it is crucial that teenagers understand the dangers of social media and never share any personal information about you or your peers online as you can never take it down. Also keep all your social media platforms on private so only your real friends can see your posts!!
Then there is also online bullies called cyber bullies that try to put people down by saying mean comments & sharing bad photos. If you ever get cyber bullied then Stop ,Block &Tell. Let us explain what this means Stop texting the sender, block them & Tell a trusted adult and screenshot the evidence in case this keeps going on.
Always remember to follow ‘The Granny Rule’. The Granny Rule is if you are about to post something online and you don’t know whether to send it or not use the Granny Rule. The Granny Rule is a simple system to use, all you have to do is think “would granny like to see this?” If granny wouldn’t mind seeing it then go ahead and post it. However if granny would mind seeing it then don’t even think twice about it- simply don’t send it!!
Some of the news you read can be fake news so don’t believe everything you read or hear.
