North Pres. Health and Wellbeing Week

June 15th – 19th 2020

The boys and girls of North Pres. have worked so hard at home since our school closed that we decided they deserved a real treat.

So for this week, we are all working from the same Wellbeing Week Padlet (link below). There are lots of activities to choose from, such as:

  • Art and craft
  • Gardening
  • Healthy Eating
  • Physical Exercise and Outdoor Games
  • Relaxation & Emotional Wellbeing Activities
  • Parents Corner (we have to look after the grown-ups too!)

We’d love if you would tell us about your two favourite activities of the week. You could draw, write or send a photo telling us about them and send them to the class teacher. You could also write a little note on the Padlet.

Have fun everyone, we hope you have a great Health and Wellbeing Week!

End Of Year Attendance Celebrations

Some lucky boys and girls who have had great attendance this year enjoyed ice creams in the outside classroom today.  We hope that you all enjoyed your well deserved treat!

Final assembly of the year

The final assembly of the school year took place with all the classes gathered in the school yard. 4th class told us some good news from their class, while 6th performed a song and a poem at what was their last assembly in North Pres. Ms. Egan presented the "Spirit of North Pres" award to a child in each class. This award is for a person who shows, caring for others and has a positive attitude in school every day.

First Holy Communion 2022

Saturday May 14th was a very special day for the boys and girls of North Presentation as they made their First Holy Communion in the Cathedral Of St. Mary & St. Anne. It was the first time in over 20 years that there were North Pres. boys making their First Holy  Communion and it was so lovely to see! Thank you to Fr. Sean who celebrated the mass with us, to the class teachers, Ms. O'Callaghan and Ms. Ahern and to Ms. Buckley, Ms. O'Connell and Ms. O'Neill who played the music during the mass. A huge thanks to Ms. Coleman and the Parent's Association who decorated the school so beautifully and provided gorgeous food for the celebrations after the ceremony. We hope that all of the boys and girls had a wonderful day!

World Book Day 2022

There were lots of fun events in the school this week to celebrate World Book Day 2022. The children in Senior Infants made their own books, including text and illustrations! The 2nd and 6th class children went on a trip to Waterstones to spend their World Book Day vouchers. To finish the week off on a high, we had a dress up day on Friday, where children could dress as their favourite fictional character. It was a fantastic finish to the week and we were amazed by all of the wonderful costumes! Well done to all of the parents and guardians who helped out with the costumes. Well done to the all of the teachers who dressed up too! We are looking forward to next year's event already!!
