Attendance Reward

Our boys and girls were so proud of themselves for having full attendance during the last school year. They were rewarded by going on a trip to a local cafe for hot chocolate. We are sure these children can meet the 100 Days of Attendance Challenge and enjoy another reward in February.

Attendance Assembly September 2017

We held our first attendance assembly of the year on Friday 8th September. Entertainment was provided by Ms O' Brien's class. The girls made up their own anti-bullying raps and performed them for the school. Ms Murray challenged the children to an attendance challenge. Every child with full attendance for the first 100 days (7th February) will get a reward. The children who had full attendance last year were presented with certificates and were informed that they will be taken out for hot chocolate. Our assembly came to an end with some Zumba dancing.

Yellow Flag Intercultural Day

On Friday 23rd June North Pres. held its biennial Intercultural Day. This year's event was extra special because North Pres. raised its Yellow Flag. The event was attended by the newly elected Lord Mayor Tony Fitzgerald, Lady Mayoress Georgina and other community representatives from U.C.C., the Traveller Visibility Group, local primary schools and our Board of Management. The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress joined our previous principal Kathleen Haverty in raising the Yellow Flag. The school choir opened the ceremony, followed by entertainment from every class, project displays and concluded with a céilí. The parental support on the day was incredible. Over twenty countries were represented at our food stalls. It was a fantastic community event. Well done to all involved.

The Sports Shop

Ms.Whelton's class had great fun this week in Aistear. The theme was 'the sports shop'. The three stations were: role play, water play and playdough. They opened their own sports shop where they set up the shop and bought and sold sports clothes and equipment. The water play area was a real hit! They had fun while learning there. Finally, they got to show their creative sides by using playdough to make trophies, wheels and balls on playdough mats. Thanks to all of the parents who sent in things for the sports shop, we appreciate your help!

Clay nest art in Senior Infants

Senior Infants have been busy beavers! They made clay nests which they painted in lovely bright colours. They will take home their nests in beautiful baskets. They are looking forward to eating the chocolate eggs in the nest for Easter!

Senior Infants' Plants

The children in Senior Infants planted seeds a few weeks ago. They planted cress, runner beans and baby carrots. They took their plants home recently. They had grown so much over the few weeks.

Farmer Jimmy

There was great excitement when Jimmy the Farmer visited our school and brought some animals with him. He brought a calf and we named her Molly. He also brought his sheep dog Miley. He was very friendly. Then Jimmy surprised us with a hen and she had laid some fresh eggs. Jimmy let us name her Rosie. We were very gentle with the animals. We investigated all the different vegetables he grows on the farm. We saw carrots, leeks, onions, poatoes, beetroot, parsnips and parsley. Patrick brought home some potatoes. It was a day we will never forget!
