Welcome Back.
I hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday.
Have you managed to collect many stamps over
the 6 weeks? A big congratulations to all those
that did use their passports this summer and I hope that
you keep up the good work.
A new year in school brings lots of new opportunities to
get involved with new activities to keep those brains

New to DCU
Hi all! My name is Claire and I will be taking over at DCU. I cant wait to be
involved in this amazing project! I have just finished studying Marine
Biology at University. This is where you learn about what goes on in the
oceans. Did you know that oceans cover around 71% of the Earths surface? So any fishy questions please feel free to ask.
