Nano Nagle and Presentation Day

To prepare for Presentation Day (November 21st) and to celebrate the life and work of Nano Nagle, all children have been learning about the life and work of Nano Nagle this week. Nano Nagle established the Presentation Order of nuns and her ethos is central to the running of our school, almost 300 years after she began teaching the children of the area. The senior classes completed projects and art work based on Nano's life. They also took part in a wonderful initiative run by Nano Nagle place. Kids from Presentation schools all over Ireleand watched an online Fairytale of Nano Nagle video. There were even Q+A sessions with the Lady of the Lantern afterwards! We wish all Presentation sisters around the world a very Happy Presentation Day.

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.

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.
