Ms Colette O’Sullivan teaches 2nd Class. Ms O’Sullivan has a very busy classroom and encourages full engagement in the variety of activities in progress each day. 2nd Class are becoming much more independent in their learning and work in small and larger groups collaboratively in different subject areas. It is not unusual to find the class experimenting with science, with colour, with sounds – and they love to be quiet and enjoy DEAR time too (Drop Everything And Read.)
Ms O’Sullivan is just in her second year in Ballysax, but brings a wealth of experience with her, having been Acting Principal in a Gaeltacht school in Kerry and having taught also in London. It’s no surprise that she has an interest in football and she helps Ms Houlihan to train the girls’ Gaelic football teams in school.
