Dress up Day

The whole school enjoyed dress up day last Friday. The children wore their costumes into school and some of the teachers joined in the fun as well dressing up. Junior and Senior infants went trick or treating to the older classes, while 4th, 5th and 6th classes entertained the whole school by showing us the Thriller dance. Early Start loved hearing the story "Room on the Broom" and 3rd class did some Halloween art.

Friendship Week Art Competition

This morning we had another whole school assembly to celebrate the end of Friendship week in the school. Ms. Twohig's 2nd recited a poem about friendship while the girls in 4th, 5th, and 6th class led the school singing "How far I'll go" Shandon Street Credit Union kindly sponsored prizes for our Friendship Week art competition. The children had to draw a poster about friendship. Some of the older children wrote poems about friendship instead. Congratulations to the winners from each class. During the week there was a display up next to the Blue Room where examples of how the children were kind were displayed. By the end of the week, the board was full of kind things that the children from all the classes did. In the yard, also this week, was a friendship station. If children couldn't find anyone to play with they would go to the friendship station and some of the older girls would play with them or help them to find someone else to play with. All the children had a great time this week, made some new friends and learned how important it is to be nice to others.

Senior Infants' Autumn Walk

The children in Senior Infants had a lovely walk in the school garden. They were looking for signs that Autumn is here. They gathered leaves and chestnuts. They had a great time! They can't wait to go for another walk!

Friendship Week

Today the school had an assembly to launch Friendship Week. All this week we are going to be kind to everyone in the school. The older classes will be reading and playing with the younger classes. There will be a competition for all classes where the children have to design a poster based on the theme of friendship. We will also be helping Ms Manley complete the display outside the seomra gorm by writing all the kind things that we did this week. During the assembly today the whole school sang "You are my Brother" and Ms. O Brien's 4th and 5th class sang a lovely version of Ed Sheeran's song in Irish.
