Some of our 5th class pupils were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) Initiative in the CBS Library. We met PJ Lynch, author and illustrator of The Boy Who Fell Off The Mayflower and he also illustrated Ryan Tubridy’s book, Patrick and the President. He spoke to us about the stories and illustrations in his books and told how he used his daughter as a model in his books. PJ used charcoal to complete some drawings of our pupils, which we will display in the school. Many thanks to the CBS and Siobhan, the librarian, for the invitation.
We are all very proud of our 2nd Class pupils who made their First Communion today. They all looked fantastic and the ceremony was beautiful. Many thanks to all the parents for their support. We have to say a special thank you to Ms O’Neill, Ms Berkery and Chrissie for all their hard work in preparing their classes for the sacrament, and also HUGE THANKS to Helen for her superb art work in the Church. Our choir preformed brilliantly, thanks to Mr Cronin and Ms Dodrill. Thank you also to Fr John and the parish team.
Using our senses in our school garden. Smelling lavender, tasting herbs, looking at cloud shapes in the sky and listening to birds in the trees.
On Friday the 10th of March volunteers from Amdocs Software Systems came in to our school to revamp our school garden.
They cleared weeds, cleaned out the pond, varnished the benches and planted lovely new flowers for us to enjoy. They did absolutely trojan work!!
This was all organised by Volunteer Ireland and we are extremely grateful for their support.
Take a look for yourself…
On Wednesday the 15th of February both staff and students took part in our first Walk on Wednesday. This was organised by the Ms. Mahon and her very hard working Green School Committee.
As you can see from the pictures we had two empty car parks and it was great to see the whole school take part on the day.
Well done to Ms. Mahon and her Green School Committee for all the work they put into organising the day.
On Friday the 3rd and Monday the 6th two teams of boys and girls from 5th and 6th Class went down to St. Catherine’s to take part in the annual soccer blitz organised by An Garda Síochána.
All teams played very well and represented the school with a fantastic attitude and showed great sportsmanship.
Well done to everyone involved!
Last Friday the whole school took part in Operation Transformation’s 10@10. We had great fun taking part in a short Zumba session in the yard.
In the run up to Christmas, we were joined once again by Maria, a very talented lady, for some flower arranging classes. The classes proved to be very popular and we have some very talented parents in our school. Well done to all the parents who attended the classes and showed such great talent. If you are interested in attending a flower arranging class, contact Yvonne in the school or Sr Rita in the Haven.
