The following is an outline of some of the additional programmes and initiatives that we undertake in Fifth Class:
This is an annual competition between the three Fifth classes with a wide variety of categories which include sports, singing, composing and reciting poetry, handwriting, tidy copy checks, uniform checks, art, draughts, accelerated reader and quizzes to name but a few.
This is a bring and buy sale where the children of Fifth class organise the collection of toys/books/buns etc, present them in stalls in their classrooms and are responsible for the sale of the items.
This takes place each December and all the proceeds collected are donated to the charity Bóthar.
A number of guest speakers visit our classrooms each year to speak to the children about topics including the Burren and the history of Ennis town.
It is expected that Fifth class pupils would read for pleasure at home for a minimum of 15 minutes daily.

Independent and group research on different topics for display, PowerPoint and oral presentation purposes.
