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.

March Assembly

Our March assembly was held last week. 4th class choir treated us to a performance of two of their songs which they performed earlier in the week with The Cork National Children's Choir. Everyone was so proud of the work that the children and their teachers put into learning and performing the songs. The kindness award for the month went to two girls from 4th class, while Ms Coleman had some special awards for some girls who made a big effort while helping planting some flowers that we will see sprouting up around the school in the next few weeks. The children from 1st class had a very important quote of the month. Ms. Murray told the younger classes about the "in it to win it" initiative, where children from infants will have to the chance to enter a draw for an Easter Egg by coming into school for the next two weeks. 2nd class ended the assembly with a beautiful performance of a "Million Dreams" which was enjoyed by the whole school.

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.
