Frohe Ostern!

In German class we learned about ‘Ostern’ in Germany and Austria this week. 3rd to 6th class pupils learned a Easter song and did a quiz about German Easter traditions. Pre-schooler, as well as Junior and Senior Infants learned all about the ‘Osterhase’, ‘Ostereier’ and ‘Osternest’. Frau Clarke and the pupils from German class would like to wish you all ‘Frohe Ostern’!

Art Exhibition: Interviews.

Three 3rd Class pupils interviewed parents at our art exhibition.

One parent said it was “absolutely brilliant” and that there were “lovely colours.” He would “highly recommend” coming to the exhibition.

Another parent thought the exhibition was “very good.” She also thought that there was “lots of colour” and she would recommend visiting the exhibition.

One parent said there was “a real variety of work” from Junior Infants to 6th class. She really liked the Modigliani portraits that 6th class made.

Some parents were asked what their favourite paintings were. One parent said he likes the ‘Mona Lisa’ because it’s “very graphic looking.” Another parent said that she doesn’t have one favourite piece of art, she said “I like all art.”

The interviewers all enjoyed going to the exhibition. They enjoyed looking at paintings by Leonardo Da Vinci and ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch. One interviewer really liked 5th Class’s Pop Art pictures and 6th Class’s Picasso paintings.
