In To Win Raffle

Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class participated in the IN-TO-WIN attendance drive for the three weeks leading up to the Easter Holidays. Each child got a raffle ticket for every week that they had full attendance. On the day of the holidays we picked out the winning names and those children received a voucher for Smyths. All the prizes were donated to the school by the Cathedral Credit Union on Shandon Street.

March Assembly

Our March assembly was held last week. 4th class choir treated us to a performance of two of their songs which they performed earlier in the week with The Cork National Children's Choir. Everyone was so proud of the work that the children and their teachers put into learning and performing the songs. The kindness award for the month went to two girls from 4th class, while Ms Coleman had some special awards for some girls who made a big effort while helping planting some flowers that we will see sprouting up around the school in the next few weeks. The children from 1st class had a very important quote of the month. Ms. Murray told the younger classes about the "in it to win it" initiative, where children from infants will have to the chance to enter a draw for an Easter Egg by coming into school for the next two weeks. 2nd class ended the assembly with a beautiful performance of a "Million Dreams" which was enjoyed by the whole school.

World Book Day 2019

North Pres celebrated World Book Day 2019 in style. Many of our children and teachers dressed up as characters from their favourite books. Thirty senior infant and first class parents participated in C.A.P.E.R. (Children and Parents Enjoying Reading) in the morning. Afterwards the first and fourth classes walked to Waterstones to buy a book using their World Book Day vouchers. In the afternoon the older children visited the classes of the younger children and they all sat down and read together.

February Assembly

The monthly assembly for February was held this week. There was a special award for a 6th class girl for the superb job that she did when she was a Lunchtime Pal before Christmas. Senior Infants performed a song about the animals in the jungle. Ms. Murray told the school about the upcoming Dress up day for World Book day. The Health Promoting School committee had some very exciting news for the classes about the upcoming Brunch Club where each class in the school will get a day to go to the Parent's room and enjoy some nice treats. It also will give them a chance to chat with the classmates in a relaxed setting. Ms. Whelton's 2nd class had our quote for the month reminding us to just be ourselves. The Kindness awards for the month went to children in the Junior Infant classes. Their teachers picked these children as they showed kind gestures to their classmates. Ms. Murray also called up the 20 children who missed no school during the 1st 100 days of the school year. These children will enjoy a trip bowling in the coming weeks.
