Ms Mary O’Halloran teaches 1st Class. Ms O’Halloran has a busy classroom of children who are transitioning from infant level to a more formal timetable in a relaxed setting, which includes getting used to a longer day at school! There is a hum of industry about 1st Class and it is not unusual to find Busy Bee activities in progress, science experiments or quiet DEAR time (Drop Everything and Read.) Ms O’Halloran is very tuned into the personalities of the children in her class and supports them in their relationships with others. Ms O’Halloran is a native of Co Kildare and enjoys running with a local athletics club. She helps to co-ordinate Green Schools in Ballysax.
