North Pres. Health and Wellbeing Week

June 15th – 19th 2020

The boys and girls of North Pres. have worked so hard at home since our school closed that we decided they deserved a real treat.

So for this week, we are all working from the same Wellbeing Week Padlet (link below). There are lots of activities to choose from, such as:

  • Art and craft
  • Gardening
  • Healthy Eating
  • Physical Exercise and Outdoor Games
  • Relaxation & Emotional Wellbeing Activities
  • Parents Corner (we have to look after the grown-ups too!)

We’d love if you would tell us about your two favourite activities of the week. You could draw, write or send a photo telling us about them and send them to the class teacher. You could also write a little note on the Padlet.

Have fun everyone, we hope you have a great Health and Wellbeing Week!

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.

The children built some wonderful structures and showed great imagination when building. Everyone agreed that they had a great day.

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.

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.
