Seachtain na Gaeilge

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 Seachtain na Gaeilge has arrived !! 

We have lots of fun activites planned next week for everybody in our school. 

Across the week, some classes will be inviting parents in to play games with the children. This however will not be possible in each class due to a variety of reasons. Teachers will contact you directly should they need volunteers. 

Every child will be receiving their very own customised Skerries Educate Together sticker to show that we are taking part in Seachtain na Gaeilge as a school.  

On Thursday, each  class will perform an Irish poem or Song for our Ceolchoirm. We will also be joined by musicians to play some traditional Irish music. We invite all children to dress in green for this day for the occasion. Unfortunately due to the whole school taking part in our Ceolchoirm, we will not have enough space for parents/guardians. 

Between now and after the Easter holidays, each class will be working on an exciting Gaeilge drama competition which will be judged by a director from RTE. 

If you are in the school over the next few weeks, keep an eye for our fantastic collaborate display which will involve each child creating their own Celtic Print to hang on the walls. 

We encourage everyone to try and use their cúpla focail over the course of the week in any way and most importantly,  to have fun! 

Go raibh míle maith agaibh,

Eleanor, Sylvia agus Laoíse.

Revised Language Curriculum Training Day for staff on Wednesday 7th February

Dear Parents,

I am writing to remind all parents of some staff training taking place resulting in a one-day closure on Wednesday 7th February 2018.

All teachers will be attending the second in-service training in connection with the Revised Language Curriculum at school on that day. This covers new methodology and planning in the way that both English and Irish is taught in school. It includes approaches to developing Oral language, Reading and Writing in both languages. This is happening in all primary schools in the country as directed by the Department for Education and Skills and is part of a three year roll-out of this new programme. Dates for further training over the next three years will be confirmed nearer the times. For any parents who wish to know more about this the following link will provide more comprehensive information:

https://www.education.ie/en/Circulars-and-Forms/Active-Circulars/cl0061_2015.pdf

The Board has decided on the above date for this training and has asked us to communicate it to you with as much notice as possible. We thank you for your continued cooperation.

Best regards,

Tomás Hickey, Principal.

After School Clubs Spring 2018

We are pleased to inform you that our After School Clubs will be commencing on Monday 12th February. This term will run for a period of 10 weeks.  However, due to the mid term break the Thursday clubs will not start until the 22nd February.  Please note that parents can not enrol their child(ren) in more than two clubs.  This is to ensure that all children get a chance to participate in the afterschool clubs.  If there are still places available on clubs after registration day we will notify all parents and you may then book further clubs.  In the interest of fairness we would ask that parents only enrol their own children.

Registration Day

When?  Saturday 27th January at 10am        

Where?  At the school

What do I need to bring?

  • A completed registration form (one form to be completed for each child).
  • Fee – please bring exact change (cheques are welcome but don’t write the amount until places are secured).
