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 2022

There were lots of fun events in the school this week to celebrate World Book Day 2022. The children in Senior Infants made their own books, including text and illustrations! The 2nd and 6th class children went on a trip to Waterstones to spend their World Book Day vouchers. To finish the week off on a high, we had a dress up day on Friday, where children could dress as their favourite fictional character. It was a fantastic finish to the week and we were amazed by all of the wonderful costumes! Well done to all of the parents and guardians who helped out with the costumes. Well done to the all of the teachers who dressed up too! We are looking forward to next year's event already!!

6th Class Graduation 2020

The Class of 2020 had a graduation ceremony that will never be forgotten. Due to social distancing the photographs don't do justice to the wonderful atmosphere at this unique graduation. The teachers, SNAs, secretaries, caretaker and Sr Angela lined the school car park as 6th Class gathered with their families. We sang songs and every girl was presented with a certificate and gift. Ms Egan and Ms Ahern spoke about the strength, kindness and creativity of all the girls in 6th Class. Two of our girls bravely made a speech and read a self-written poem. Every family was clapped and cheered as they left North Pres. Best wishes to all our girls and their families for the future.

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.
