Hallowe’en Fun in 3rd Class

3rd Class really got into the Hallowe’en mood this year.

We started the day reading spooky stories and researching Hallowe’en customs.

After break, we changed into our spooky and homemade costumes. We then got to see all the other classes who also got dressed up, in assembly. It was great fun.

After lunch we played some traditional Hallowe’en games like bobbing for apples, pass the apple and apples on a string. We also had some barm brack where Kamil got the ring.

We finished the day off by making chocolate covered apples.

Happy Hallowe’en everybody from 3rd Class and Mr. Maye

Saving with Sligo Credit Union in St. Edward’s

Each month children from 3rd-6th class have an opportunity to save with the Credit Union in our school. Angela from the Credit Union comes to the school on the 1st Wednesday each month and collects money from the children, which she lodges to their account. Here are some of our young savers with Angela.

Rugby Blitz


On Wednesday 24th of October at 9.45 ST. Edwards Braves and ST. Edwards Lions rugby teams went over to the IT. The teams were made up of pupils from 5th and 6th. We were taking part in a rugby blitz with lots of other schools from Sligo to learn the rules of rugby.

When we arrived we had to register our teams and we were shown the pitches that we would be playing on. ST. Edwards Braves were playing on pitch 6 and St. Edwards Lions played on pitch 7. We played teams from Rosses Point, Curry and Culfadda.

During the games we learned the rules of tag rugby. We were shown how to defend our try line and how to score tries. We were also shown how to line up for a throw in at the side. It was a great day. We learned a lot and had good fun.

There is rugby training on Saturday mornings at 10am until 11.30 over in the IT. Anyone is welcome to join.

Senior Infants Autumn Trail

Senior Infants went on an autumn trail on Tuesday 9th October. We walked from our school through St. John’s Hospital and then into the Children’s Graveyard. We had great fun admiring the reds, browns and yellows of autumn. We collected many different leaves and fruits for our autumn display table, including sycamore, beech and oak leaves, acorns and helicopters.
