Aistear Playtown

May 8, 2024

By

In Scoil an Chroí Naofa, we place a big emphasis on learning through play, Aistear.

Recently, Playtown Tullamore came to the school and set up three quadrants for the children to explore.

Through relationships in play, children develop and demonstrate improved verbal communication, high level of social and interaction skills, creative use of play materials, imaginative thinking and problem solving capacities.

The children really enjoyed themselves.

Our school also took part in the annual Ballinasloe St.Patrick’s Day parade. Everyone enjoyed the wonderful celebrations!
