Our creative schools’ coordinator Blaithin has been in to visit each class about the initiative. The children voted on their favourite topics of interest. We will look at these results to guide us to our next step.

We are focusing on well-being for the rest of the month of March and April. The children will have a calendar in their homework folder and we hope parents will join their child in completing as many well-being activities as possible throughout this time.

Hot Chocolate Day

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

To raise money for the Educate Together national organisation, our Student Council will hold a Hot Chocolate Day on 19 February, the last day before the half-term break. Children are invited to bring €1 to support the fundraiser.

Massive thanks to the Student Council and PTA for a very successful Hot Chocolate & Board Game Day. The children had a fantastic day and it ran really smoothly.
