January Assembly

The first whole school assembly of the new year was held last week. Third class gave a very interesting presentation of Andrea Bocelli as their Influential Person in History. The Kindness award was presented to a student from Senior Infants. Junior Infants gave a great performance of a song about a little snowman and a lovely Irish poem. The whole school finished off the assembly by singing "The Banks of my own Lovely Lee".

One child from each of the infant and first classes won a selection box through the 'In to Win' challenge. Forty children from 2nd to 6th Class enjoyed a pizza party for having full attendance for the last three weeks of school.

Wake up and shake up

Wake up and shake up has started again for the summer term. Over 45 pupils are coming in early before school to get some exercise and skipping. This happens 3 mornings a week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday) and the children absolutely love it.

April Assembly

The school held its monthly assembly recently. 5th class provided the quote of the month which reminds us that sometimes it takes hard work to achieve something. Mr. Donovan's class did a wonderful song about the story of the Little Red Hen and an irish poem for the school. It was wonderful to see them do lovely actions to both of them. There was a special generosity  award to a girl in 3rd class who donated her own money to the school's recent Dancer for Cancer appeal. Ms Coleman had special awards for gardeners from Junior, Senior and 1st classes.

Summer Gardening.

Ms Coleman was very busy recently helping the children plant some healthy vegetables in our school garden. They also planted some flowers in front of the school, next to the railings. Sometime soon we hope to see some bright coloured flowers as we walk to school in the morning.

In To Win Raffle

Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class participated in the IN-TO-WIN attendance drive for the three weeks leading up to the Easter Holidays. Each child got a raffle ticket for every week that they had full attendance. On the day of the holidays we picked out the winning names and those children received a voucher for Smyths. All the prizes were donated to the school by the Cathedral Credit Union on Shandon Street.

STEM in the School

The school has borrowed Bee-Bots from the Cork Education Support Centre for the last couple of weeks. There are small robots that can be easily programmed by the children. The children are having great fun with them learning how to code.
