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.

Tug of War Blitz

3rd and 4th class took part in a Tug of War blitz in Neptune Stadium. A few weeks ago they had training in the school yard and since then they have been out practicing with their teachers. At the blitz  it was all about participating. There were loads of teams from different schools. The girls were outstanding showing great strength when pulling against other teams. They had great fun and showed lots of promise. At the end of the blitz the school got a Certificate of participation. All the pupils had a great day and hope to take part again in the future.

Launch: The Yard At The End Of The Rainbow

The North Presentation Primary School community launched their fundraising drive to raise €35,000, to provide the children with the yard of their dreams. The children created an aerial shot of leprechauns filling the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Funds raised will be used to cover the existing tarmac yard with a surface of synthetic coloured grass. This covering will incorporate a pitch with a running track around the perimeter. It will provide a soft, safe play surface for the children - shock absorbing & non-slip. It will also result in a safe athletics track and pitch for all team sports. You can see a sample of the yard surface while standing on Gerald Griffin St. and looking into our yard. Today alone we raised €850 from the generous donations of parents and community groups. The staff, pupils and Parents’ Association are hopeful that over the course of the next 12 months they can, together, raise this money. Now we need your help to spread the word of our commitment to getting the Yard At The End Of The Rainbow. Please help us to tell the people of Cork about our quest.

Attendance Reward - Bowling

We set our boys and girls a challenge last August, to try and maintain full attendance for the first 100 days of school. We held an assembly on the 100th day and the children were informed that the challenge winners would be rewarded with a trip bowling. The following day a group of boys and girls from Junior Infants to 6th Class walked to the Leisureplex to go bowling. The children had a wonderful time.

Maths Eyes - 3rd Class

We had a fantastic turn out of parents for our Maths Eyes Project. The parents and children went out into the community with cameras and photographed different examples of maths.When they returned to the school they created posters with their photos. They then wrote maths problems to accompany their photos. The children loved working with the parents.
