Good Luck Sixth Class

Children in 6th Class have been getting very excited recently as our first experience of Secondary school life draws near.

The class have been showing great maturity, trying their best and also doing a small bit of worrying as the Entrance Exams get closer.

Some children will be sitting these exams this coming weekend while others have another few weeks to wait!

We are very proud of the class for the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm they have shown.

We wish them the very best of luck from everyone here in Skerries Educate Together N.S.

Important Information Talks

17th January 2013.

Dear Parents,

I am writing to let you know about two public talks that are taking place in the near future that I think will be of interest to you. The talks are being supported by all the schools in Skerries, with each school making a financial contribution to subsidise the cost of the second talk. These talks we feel would be particularly relevant for parents of children from second class to sixth class.

Free:- Internet Safety Talk for Parents on Wednesday January 23rd in Skerries Community Centre from 8-9.30pm.

This talk will be given by Darren Dunwoody from Microsoft Ireland and will focus on internet safety advice for parents. A community Garda will speak about the legal aspects of cyber-bullying offences and there will hands-on demonstration for parents on how to adjust settings in devices (PCs, Laptops, Smartphones…) to make them safer for children.

David Coleman, Clinical Psychologist, ‘Bullying and How to Stop it’
Thursday Feb 7th in Skerries Community Centre from 8-9.45pm,
€5 per ticket for talk.
Tickets will be on sale in Skerries Bookshop from Saturday 19th January.

This talk will discuss the signs of Bullying, explore the causes of it and present ways to address it within the context of family, school and community. Research on cyber-bullying and ways to deal with it will be included.

Both talks start at 8pm sharp. We strongly encourage parents to attend these talks if at all possible.

Yours sincerely,
Tomás

Recycled Super Heroes by 3rd class

We designed our very own super heroes, super powers and all! Then, we created their costumes using only old newspaper and tape. We really enjoyed being so creative! Next time we will create our very own ‘Super Teacher’…. or at least her costume   🙂

Merry Christmas from everyone in 3rd class and wishing you all a very happy new year!

Go raibh míle maith agaibh!

The Student Council would like to thank all of the children, parents and staff of the school for contributing very generously towards our recent collection for the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind. We raised 179 euros exactly, all of which will be going towards the training of guide dogs for people with visual impairments. The children donated their pocket money that they had earned from carrying out a household task at home. We are also grateful to our guest speaker, Eva West, who spoke to the children at our assemblies about her guide dog, Parker. Eva answered many of the questions the children asked about her guide dog. Eva told us not to be afraid of guide dogs and to always seek permission from the person with a guide dog if you would like to pet the dog.
