World Book Day 2019

North Pres celebrated World Book Day 2019 in style. Many of our children and teachers dressed up as characters from their favourite books. Thirty senior infant and first class parents participated in C.A.P.E.R. (Children and Parents Enjoying Reading) in the morning. Afterwards the first and fourth classes walked to Waterstones to buy a book using their World Book Day vouchers. In the afternoon the older children visited the classes of the younger children and they all sat down and read together.

February Assembly

The monthly assembly for February was held this week. There was a special award for a 6th class girl for the superb job that she did when she was a Lunchtime Pal before Christmas. Senior Infants performed a song about the animals in the jungle. Ms. Murray told the school about the upcoming Dress up day for World Book day. The Health Promoting School committee had some very exciting news for the classes about the upcoming Brunch Club where each class in the school will get a day to go to the Parent's room and enjoy some nice treats. It also will give them a chance to chat with the classmates in a relaxed setting. Ms. Whelton's 2nd class had our quote for the month reminding us to just be ourselves. The Kindness awards for the month went to children in the Junior Infant classes. Their teachers picked these children as they showed kind gestures to their classmates. Ms. Murray also called up the 20 children who missed no school during the 1st 100 days of the school year. These children will enjoy a trip bowling in the coming weeks.

Sciath na Scol Final

The school football team took part in the Sciath na Scol football final recently against the girls from Padre Pio school. The whole school got involved in the build up with some of the older classes busy making plaits to show their support for the team. On the day the whole school was out to give the team a guard of honour on their way to the match. The girls from 2nd class up went to the match to support the team and cheer them along. The team played their hearts out and left everything out on the pitch but unfortunately it wasn't their day with Padre Pio winning the match. The whole school are incredibly proud of the team and the effort that they put in on the day and with all the training coming up to the match.

Buddy Week

Buddy week was held in North Pres last week. Every child from Junior Infants up to 6th class was paired with a buddy in a different class.The staff in the school also buddied up and carried out random acts of kindness to their buddies throughout the week. On Monday the children got to meet their new buddy and while colouring they got to know each other. On Wednesday the buddies enjoyed a walk together in the convent garden. The older girls were very good at pointing out some of the signs of Autumn to their younger buddies. On Friday we had a whole school assembly where there was a few special awards to children who really embraced the spirit of buddy week. The 4th class entertained the school with some upbeat dancing. Later in the day the buddies met up again to do some reading together before releasing some of their energy with dancing.
