Final assembly of the year

The final assembly of the school year took place with all the classes gathered in the school yard. 4th class told us some good news from their class, while 6th performed a song and a poem at what was their last assembly in North Pres. Ms. Egan presented the "Spirit of North Pres" award to a child in each class. This award is for a person who shows, caring for others and has a positive attitude in school every day.

End of Year Assembly

It was fantastic to meet as a whole school for the End of Year Assembly today. We all gathered in the Convent Garden and got to celebrate so many of our wonderful students. Junior Infants, Senior Infants and the Romani Crew all performed songs for us. Children with full attendance were presented with their attendance certificates while 2 students received Kindness Awards. To culminate, our 6th class girls performed a poem for us about their time in North Presentation and we wished them all the best for the future. It has been a difficult year for our pupils, their families and our staff but we look forward to better times ahead. Wishing everyone a lovely summer, we look forward to seeing you back in school on Tuesday August 31st.

To celebrate all the good work that they have done in Senior Infants the classes got to enjoy a fun day. It started off with a walk down to Shandon park where they got to play in the shadow of Shandon Bells. After that it was fun time in the yard with lots of games, egg and spoons races and sack races. Before finishing the day off with a teddy bears picnic complete with ice cream in the sun in the Convent Garden. It was a great day and every one enjoyed it.

This week is Wellbeing Week in North Pres. There are lots of fun activities to get the children moving and some lovely mindfulness activities too, which the children really love. There was also a very special delivery of fruit boxes for every class and the children enjoyed tasting lots of different fruits. The wellbeing of the staff and the children is so important and we hope that this week will offer everyone a chance to relax and enjoy some new experiences!

One Book Under Every Tree

This Christmas we were delighted to facilitate the One Book Under Every Tree initiative. Ms. Coleman, with the help of her many assistants, gathered and wrapped a book for every child in the school. Last Friday every child left with the gift of a beautifully wrapped book and with a tasty treat from Ms. Egan. We hope that all of the children enjoyed their gifts!

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.
