Thank you to the Tullow Marathon Runners

Ms Carpenter was delighted to attend a presentation in the Parish Centre on Monday 31st October, organised by Brendan Dowling and the Tullow Marathon Runners. The group very generously donated €300 to the school as part of their community fundraising and sponsorship for the marathon. They raised over €11,000 for the Tullow community. 

Thank you very much from all at St. Columba’s N.S. 

Damhsa Gaelach

Four of our girls participated in the South East of Ireland Feis at the weekend. They enjoyed their experience and brought home lots of medals including Highly Commended in the Cup Competition, 3rd place in the Reel and Highly Commended in the Slip Jig! Comhghairdeas cailíní!

Lava lamps

Ms. O’Neill’s class made lava lamps in Science today using oil, food colouring and effervescent tablets. The children enjoyed learning how oil and water don’t mix as their density differs. Oil sits on top of water as it has a lower density. The effervescent tablet releases small bubbles of Carbon Dioxide gas which rise to the top and take the coloured water along with them. They look really cool!
