  • the original gallows trapdoor from Carlow Gaol;
  • the 6m carved pulpit from Carlow Cathedral;
  • items from Carlow’s Sugar Factory, which operated for almost 80 years;
  • the smoking pipe of Captain Myles Keogh, killed at the Battle of Little Big Horn;
  • items relating to John Tyndall, the Carlow scientist who discovered the greenhouse effect;
  • a 340 million-year-old fossilized squid

and much more!!!

Second Class room 10 have been learning all about autumn! We have been learning about plants and animals in our local area. We went on a nature trail around our school grounds and used the iPads to take pictures of signs of autumn. We collected different types of leaves, acorns and other materials. When we went back to the classroom we looked closely at the materials we collected and studied the photographs that had been taken. We also did some leaf rubbings! It was a fun day! We love autumn :)

Well done to our fantastic 6th class students who raised €2300 for the Cancer Society through donating some of their Confirmation money and for organising a very successful Bake Sale.
