2nd Class


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.

Health Promoting School Committee

A big thank you to the children who made up the Health Promoting School Committee this year. They did an excellent job reminding their classes about Mindfulness Monday, Wake up and Shake up and Music in the Yard.

Attendance Assembly

The final assembly for the year was held recently. Ms. O Neill presented certificates to the girls on the Health Promoting school committee. The girls from 6th class then told the children how important it is to pick up litter from the beach when they visit during the summer. Ms. Murray then presented certificates to the girls and boys who have made a big improvement in their attendance this school year. The children who missed no school day this year were also presented with certificates. These children get an extra special treat of a picnic. Ms. Byran's class then ended the assembly by singing the song "A Million Dreams"

Baking Fun

2nd class had a very busy morning as they went baking. They had great fun making some soda bread. The girls had to use their maths skills to measure out the correct amounts of ingredients for the bread. Afterwards they all got to taste some of the baking.

Sponsored Walk

The children went on a sponsored walk last Friday. The girls from 2nd to 6th walked to Fitzgerald's Park. The children got a chance to play in the playground and have a well deserved break before walking back. The children from Junior Infants to 1st class went on a walk of the Shandon area before having a break in St. Anne's park for some fun and games.

Trip to Shandon

2nd class enjoyed a trip to Shandon Sweet shop today. They met Danny who makes the sweets. He told them how the sweets are made and the machines to cut and shape the machines. 2nd class then continued onto St. Anne's church Shandon. There they got to ring the bells before going up a lot of steps and looking over the balcony to see the city. The children all had a great time.
