Mark Making

The children in the Koala preschool class have been exploring their writing skills recently so we decided to make a salt tray for a new mark making experience.

First, we coloured the salt with chalk:


This gave us some lovely spring coloured salt to begin exploring


This was a really fun activity that we could share with our friends and with just a shake of the tray can start all over again!


Mens Group Trip

Mens Group Visit to Leinster House

 Last Thursday, some of the group visited Leinster House and, thanks to Minister Paschal Donohue TD, were given a guided tour of the Dail and Seanad. After the tour the group were invited to the bar and given complimentary refreshments which were very much appreciated.

Following the visit to Leinster House, the group did a tour of the Rock & Roll Museum in Temple Bar with some of the guys managing to get a jamming session in which was great fun.

We would like to thank Dublin Bus for kindly providing the transport for us to our venues.

Easter Egg-xcitment

The youth groups searched high and low counting every chick, Easter egg, Bunny and carrot that the Easter bunny had hidden in all the different rooms here in Ozanam house .
It was no easy task but we all worked together as a team to solve egg-tremley tricky riddles all the while busting out a few dance moves!!

We put the finishing touches on our Easter baskets and having successfully completed the mission filled the baskets with lots of Easter treats!

Everyone has an egg-cellent time!!
