Learning in 1st Class

1st class have been extremely busy since returning to school after the Christmas Holidays. They learned some very important information and skills about Fire safety thanks to Fire Safety Packs from Cork City Fire Brigade. They are keeping their bodies and brains alert during the day by taking part in the 10 @ 10. They also put their engineering skills to work by using lego to enjoy some STEM activities. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) all the children to explore, design and construct in a fun way.

CAPER- Children and Parents Enjoying Reading.

Our Senior Infant and 1st Classes enjoyed CAPER over the last four weeks. The children really enjoy listening to their parents reading and talking about the stories. The children and teachers were delighted that 40 mums and dads came in to show their children how important and enjoyable reading is.

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.

look at how our garden grows!

Summer is definitely here! Our garden is blooming thanks to Ms.Coleman and Ms.Conway and all the children who have helped them with planting, weeding and decorating the garden. Not only is the garden a lovely place to be, we grow our own herbs, some fruit and vegetables.
