First – Sixth Class pupils have been very busy this week producing some excellent poetry for the ‘Write A Poem’ project.
Below are a selection of poems produced by some of the pupils.
Well done to all children who submitted poems.
Special thanks to Ms. Lahart for coordinating this project and also for dropping our poems down to Kilkenny Education Centre for us today.

Dualla National School held a fashion show with a difference recently when the pupils were given the challenge of making their own costumes using recyclable materials, card, plastic, fabric etc. Our school is currently working on an environmental project entitled, “Fresh Air, Fresh Thinking”. We are working in collaboration with two other primary Schools in Europe, Adel Primary school in Leeds and Torslanda Idrottsvags Forskola in Gothenburg, Sweden. Our schools applied for funding through Comenius, a European Union education initiative which encourages and promotes collaboration between schools in Europe. We were granted funding which enables us to partake in this project. The three schools planned a scheme of work which aims to promote awareness of local environmental issues among pupils and enables us to share findings with the other partners. We also want to promote communication and awareness of the culture of our partner countries through letter writing, Skype, e-mails, sharing photographs, art etc. The project also enables teachers to travel to the partner schools to share good practice and awareness of other education systems. Our school hosted the first Partnership meeting where staff from the other schools came to Cashel for five days. The pupils displayed their Irish dancing, tin whistle playing, modern dance and hurling, much to the delight of our guests. We also went to see some local visitor attractions which definitely impressed.
