Our new Green School Committee

Hello everyone,

We’ve had our first meeting and we’re putting together our ideas for the year and preparing our green school display.

If you’d like some pet bedding made from shredded paper, you can get some from us at our table in the lobby at 8.30 on Friday 19th October. We’ll have a regular stall once a month, so you’ll be able to stock up for your rabbit and guinea pig hutches!

Talk to you all soon,

Wiktoria, Nova, Harry, Sam,  Lucy, Jamie and Sylvia

Why Do Boats Float?

Why Do Boats Float?

Cian’s Senior Infants and First Class have been investigating why boats float. To find out the answer, we made boats from Plasticine and then checked how many passengers (chickpeas) our boats could carry.

First and Second Class have been learning some great Irish traditional dances this year. They have already learned ‘An Damhsa Mór’ and are now adding the ‘Siege of Ennis’ to their reportoire. The children picked up the steps very quickly and lots of fun was had by all!

6th Class to release their new single!

David’s 6th Class have been busy in the studio to record their new record. After the runaway success of their first release the group are hoping to do even better with the follow up. Passers by have reported hearing a lot of banging and shaking.

We will let you know a bit more about it soon.

Starting the day at our school.

Thanks to everybody for making a big effort to get to school on time. There has been a big improvement. Our school-day starts at 8.30 am. All children who arrive before this time are supervised from 8.15 am on-wards. The school doors open at 8.30 am and all children waiting at outside doors will be admitted and these doors will now be closed. It’s important that children are in school for this valuable settling -in time. It gives them a chance to chat with their friends and make a calm transition between home and school. Children arriving after 8.30 am will have to use the front door. On rainy days we allow children into the building where they wait in the downstairs corridor until the 8.30 am bell rings.
We need to let you know that all classroom doors, as well as the front door, are closed at 8.40 am. This is the time for formal teaching and learning to begin. Some children are being taught out on corridors so our school needs to be free of any visitors for this. Any children who arrive to school after this time need to press the buzzer at the front door. Sharon or some other member of staff will greet the child and bring them to their classroom. Please keep up the great

Hope we make it in time!

effort with coming to school on time every day.
