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.

Busy in the garden

Ms. Coleman and Ms. Conway have been very busy in the school garden recently. They have had lots of help from all of the classes. Some of the older girls helped painting tyres. We now have some very colourful minnions full of flowers welcoming us into our school everyday as well as some bright colourful flowerbeds in the garden. There is also a new insect hotel for any insects who feel like having a little holiday in North Pres. The younger class helped with all the planting that was done. All the children are looking forward to see what will grow over the next few months.
