Senior Infant's Hot Chocolate

Senior Infants had another great treat this week when they went making hot chocolate with their teacher. They loved the smell of the chocolate and the warm taste it had. Some of the children especially loved the marshmallows that they had with it.

World Book Day

The students and teachers had a great day celebrating World book Day this year. The children from 1st and 4th classes walked down to Waterstones. They used their world book day vouchers to buy books. There was also a story teller there who read them a story. They had a great time. 5th class and Junior Infants went reading together. They really enjoyed reading Mr. Men books. All the classes and some of the teachers enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters from books.

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.

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.

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.
