“Let’s get the books out”

Heavy schoolbags are a pain in the back literally, and can lead to back problems later on in life such as arthritis of the spine which is on the increase.
Is it right to let our children bear such a load? Let’s get the books out.
Information Technology is the better way forward, and it is overdue, interactive learning is better and will be cheaper. Irish school children ...are still being made to carry bags that exceed government recommendations, it has been revealed.
Writing for the Irish Independent, Michael Lynch, who carried out a study on the issue in 2006, noted that a government working group report in 2008 recommended that 12-year-old pupils carry books weighing no more than 3.7 kg. (approximately 10% of the child's Weight)
However, he pointed out that average student of this age has a school bag weighing 11.8 kg. Over three times the recommended weight.

Cinderella Rockerfella their very first pantomime

A very well-deserved congratulations to the children of Donoughmore N. S. on a job well done and that goes for the School Principal Alison Bourke all the staff plus parents as well.


“Wednesday 26th February, Donoughmore N. S. took to the stage in the CPI Centre, Castlefinn, with Cinderella Rockerfella their very first pantomime. The young performers warmed up the audience with their songs, dance, hilarious lines and many jokes. With booing and hissing the hall came alive and the very responsive audience cheered the young people along through Act1 and Act 2. Cinderella, who rescues poorly pets , included lambs and crocodiles in her sanctuary and a very cute frog called Fredo. Scenery was painted by the children and the many colourful costumes brought great zing and spectacle to the night. Unrecognisable in their makeup and dress two senior boys played the part of the ugly sisters and gave everyone a laugh. Makeup by two parents added sparkle and authenticity to the show. The CPI centre proved a great venue for the event which was performed as a fundraiser for the school.”
