We know how disappointing it is that you will not be having a formal graduation in the school this year and that you won’t be able to do a lot of the things that other 6th class year groups have done. However, we hope to put together some of your best memories in St. Louis Girls’ National School as a tribute to your time in the school.
This week, we would like you to get thinking about your favourite memories in St. Louis GNS. Take out a sheet of paper and start brainstorming your fondest memories. Some ideas to trigger your memory:
Other 6th class groups mentioned
- The Peace Proms in the RDS
- The trip to the Bragan Bog
- Making pancakes for the Cake Sale
Each of you will have your own special memories with your friends so try and think about the ones that meant the most to you. It could be something funny that happened between you and your friends while in school or on a school tour. Please remember that whatever memory you decide to share, it is important that it won’t cause offence, or upset anyone.
When you have decided on your best memories we would like you to create a short video clip (no more than 30 seconds). If you don’t feel comfortable creating a video, you can include a photo and text or be creative and write a poem.
You can send me your videoclip/email/poem whenever you have it finished to our email addresses.
I look forward to hearing all your best memories!

Read the Irish comprehension aloud and if possible have an adult or sibling ask you the questions in English/Irish and answer in Irish.
For the summer term we want you to complete a project on the country Australia. You will have plenty of time to complete the project and will have a choice on how you want to present the project.
Options on how to present the project:
– Create a PowerPoint Presentation
– Create a poster (previous 6th classes presented their projects on a palm tree, outline of a suitcase, outline of the shape of Australia, outline of a kangaroo – be creative!)
– Create a scrapbook
Topics to be covered in the project:
- Australian Food e.g. Vegemite, Tim Tams, Pavlova, etc.
- Australian Animals e.g. koala, kangaroo, wombat, wallaby, platypus etc.
- Australian slang words e.g. ‘G’day mate!’
- Australian pastimes e.g. surfing, Aussie rules football etc.
- Early History – The Aboriginal People
- Geographical Facts e.g The Great Barrier Reef, Uluru
- Natural Disasters e.g. The bushfires
- Famous People
- Landmarks e.g. Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House
- Choose a topic a week to research and gather resources like you did for the WW2 project.
- Decide how you want to present your project and start to lay out the different photos, drawings, magazine cut-outs, maps and photos each week.
- At the end of each week we will want you to email us a photo of the topic that you have covered for the week.
