Attendance Assembly

The final assembly for the year was held recently. Ms. O Neill presented certificates to the girls on the Health Promoting school committee. The girls from 6th class then told the children how important it is to pick up litter from the beach when they visit during the summer. Ms. Murray then presented certificates to the girls and boys who have made a big improvement in their attendance this school year. The children who missed no school day this year were also presented with certificates. These children get an extra special treat of a picnic. Ms. Byran's class then ended the assembly by singing the song "A Million Dreams"

Sponsored Walk

The children went on a sponsored walk last Friday. The girls from 2nd to 6th walked to Fitzgerald's Park. The children got a chance to play in the playground and have a well deserved break before walking back. The children from Junior Infants to 1st class went on a walk of the Shandon area before having a break in St. Anne's park for some fun and games.

2nd class enjoyed a trip to Shandon Sweet shop today. They met Danny who makes the sweets. He told them how the sweets are made and the machines to cut and shape the machines. 2nd class then continued onto St. Anne's church Shandon. There they got to ring the bells before going up a lot of steps and looking over the balcony to see the city. The children all had a great time.

Busy in the garden

Ms. Coleman and Ms. Conway have been very busy in the school garden recently. They have had lots of help from all of the classes. Some of the older girls helped painting tyres. We now have some very colourful minnions full of flowers welcoming us into our school everyday as well as some bright colourful flowerbeds in the garden. There is also a new insect hotel for any insects who feel like having a little holiday in North Pres. The younger class helped with all the planting that was done. All the children are looking forward to see what will grow over the next few months.
