So, for the past week, 1st class pupils have organised their own rota and used a separate yard area to play with skipping ropes for one break each day. They will report to Caitriona next week and tell her how its going and how it can be improved. Once we (again, 1st class pupils and teachers!) consider that we've ironed out any teething difficulties, we expect to invite Senior Infant pupils to take a turn too! We might even eventually progress to inviting Junior Infant pupils!
So far, the teachers are very impressed at how responsible the 1st class pupils have been. We are also proud of the other children in the school, who haven't been too distracted by the extra goings-on!
