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.

The girls from 2nd, 3rd and 4th had a lovely treat after mid term when theĀ  West Midlands theatre company came to the school. They enjoyed the show that they put on and some girls even got to take part in it.

Dress up Day

Before the children went on their mid term, the school had a dress up day where the children could dress up in costumes. The children really enjoyed dressing up in all their costumes.

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"
