Blaz­ing a fairy trail at Firies NS

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

THERE was no lit­tle ex­cite­ment in Firies Na­tional School last Fri­day as pupils dressed up as elves, fairies, knights and wiz­ards, all to match the mag­i­cal na­ture of the school’s fairy trail, the cul­mi­na­tion of hard work by the pupils them­selves.

Prin­ci­pal Claire Doyle ex­plained the school plans to add to the trail in times ahead hav­ing al­ready made in­door and out­door fairy doors, origami but­ter­flies, clay toad­stools, fairy clothes, sto­ries and po­ems match­ing the theme, and much more be­sides.

“It also pro­vided op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­te­grate sub­jects across the cur­ricu­lum, such as lit­er­acy, nu­mer­acy and all classes were able to par­tic­i­pate,” Ms Doyle said. “This project sparkled with cre­ativ­ity and imag­i­na­tion and the chil­dren thor­oughly en­joyed it.”
