This year we are looking at all the different ways we can show respect! The whole school are going to try very hard to be respectful. The HUGE letters in the foyer all represent an important area in life that we should respect. September was 'Respect' in general, and the children all designed a section of the letter 'R'. October is 'E' so we are learning about respecting 'Each Other'. We hope you enjoy our year long project...keep an eye on it in the foyer :)
Don't forget...our doors open at 08:20 on Wednesday 31st August. We are really looking forward to seeing everyone, and welcoming our new infants!
This week will be a busy one! On Monday we are Zumba dancing, Tuesday participating in sports day, Wednesday getting busy with lacrosse and our dress up fun run, Thursday is Tug of War work and we finish on Friday with Olympic Handball! Hopefully it is a fun and active week :)
Applications are now being accepted from the pupils for our committee next year! Duties include assisting with Sports day, organising healthy activity, promoting healthy lifestyles, as well as providing break time activities for our pupils.
If you are interested, please write a letter to Miss Galbraith, explaining why you think you would be a good member of our committee, explain any ideas you have for our school, and let us know what sports you are into yourself!
We will select our new committee before the end of term :) Good luck!
In place of our annual canvas exhibition, we are taking on the playground wall instead! It's not very exciting, and doesn't match our fab playground markings at all! The children will be guided by (mum / artist) Yvonne Moore and (dad / paint expert) Brian Evans, and will create a wonderful masterpiece for our school community to enjoy for many years to come.
However, we need paint!!
Any pots of paint you have lying around will do, we need lots of colour rather than lots of paint! The PTA will buy a special paint to seal the children's work, so we are hoping their amazing art is not just white and grey! Please donate whatever you can...emulsion paint, not gloss. Repeat, not gloss!
Welcome back to term three! We have an exciting and busy term ahead, with Sports Day, Active School Week, our end-of-year show extravaganza, as well as squeezing in some tours, and welcoming some student teachers! Thank goodness we all had that long Easter break.
Many thanks to pupils, parents/guardians and teachers for the fantastic 1916 commemoration ceremony. The foyer was beautifully decorated, and we all learned so much about events in Dublin 100 years ago. Well done!
Please note that soccer, hockey, Spanish and Drama are available this term, and your indication of interest is needed by Friday 8th April. Your child has received a paper form, but there is a downloadable version available in the PTA section of the website!
5th and 6th class are publishing a professional cookbook as part of their Junior Entrepreneur Programme! Every family is being asked to include a recipe, starter, main, dessert or treat :) If your family has not included a recipe yet, make haste!! You can email it into the school, or fill in the form that your child should have in their bag!!
Forms for entry are due this Friday!! If you have lost yours, here's another...!
