We certainly enjoy our sweet treats on a Friday and this Friday had sweet treats like no other! 5th and 6th class have been working hard to reach their next reading challenge reward which was to hold a class Bake-Off challenge. To achieve their reward they have read 220 books as a class, that’s a lot of books and we couldn’t have reached it on a more appropriate week as we celebrate World Book Day!
The children all baked some really impressive treats, The Great Irish Bake Off better watch out!
It was a very difficult job for the teachers to choose a winner but after careful consideration to the work the children put in, their creativity, their presentation and of course, how well they claim they tidied up at home (whether this is true or not we don’t know), a 5th class and 6th class winner were unanimously chosen!
In the afternoon we turned our Bake Off into a school bake sale and together with our own baking and some lovely baking contributions from parents, we managed to raise €510.06 which is going to our Green School Committee. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed and supported the bake sale! The money will be invested into our school garden and all the children, as well as our environment, will benefit from it!
