February Assembly

The school held our February assembly recently. 1st class started the assembly with a wonderful presentation on their inspirational person, Tom Crean. The kindness award for the month went to a boy in Senior Infants. Ms. Egan announced the first " Stars of the Yard". These are children who were kind and helpful towards other children out in the yard. Senior Infants finished our assembly with a wonderful performance of a song about Spring and a lovely Irish poem.

He also assisted Ms Murray in presenting the prizes for three attendance drives. We had seven winners from 1st to 6th Class for our 'Every School Day Counts' art competition. 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.

March Assembly

Our March assembly was held last week. 4th class choir treated us to a performance of two of their songs which they performed earlier in the week with The Cork National Children's Choir. Everyone was so proud of the work that the children and their teachers put into learning and performing the songs. The kindness award for the month went to two girls from 4th class, while Ms Coleman had some special awards for some girls who made a big effort while helping planting some flowers that we will see sprouting up around the school in the next few weeks. The children from 1st class had a very important quote of the month. Ms. Murray told the younger classes about the "in it to win it" initiative, where children from infants will have to the chance to enter a draw for an Easter Egg by coming into school for the next two weeks. 2nd class ended the assembly with a beautiful performance of a "Million Dreams" which was enjoyed by the whole school.

Brunch Club

The Health Promoting school committee has organised for each class to participate in Brunch Club. This gives each class a chance to sit together and enjoy pastries, fruit and other treats while chatting with class mates and getting to know them better. The classes really enjoy the experience.
