The Student Council will be working with Aileen to develop class names for the school. Each class will feedback their ideas of categories that they would like the classes to be called e.g colours, flowers etc. We are looking forward to hearing the children’s ideas.

Massive thank you to all those who supported the Enterprise Winter Market on Wednesday. It was a big success for the Enterprise children! From the Halloween Market and the Winter Market combined, the children raised €229.55. They have chosen to donate this money to Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Thank you to everyone who helped the children achieve this. Gemma

IT Update

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Over the past 6 weeks Aiveen, Fionnuala & Aileen’s classes have been working with an IT specialist (for a 1 hour slot per week) to use the iPads in a cross curricular way. Next term, there will be a further 3 classes working with the IT specialist. For information about digital learning in school, please look here where you can find information about the Department of Education document Digital Learning Framework for Primary Schools. This supports the Digital Strategy for Schools 2015-2020 which you can find here. Many thanks. Gemma

Thank you to the parents and grandparents who came to visit Ciara’s 3rd Class on Friday morning, as part of our learning about schools around the world and education through the years.  The children really enjoyed interviewing our visitors, and listening to all of their funny stories and interesting school memories.
