The children in North Pres have added a new sport to the school's activities- Badminton. This week Tanya from Cork Sport's partnership came and taught the girls from 3rd and 5th classes some skills on how to play badminton. The girls had great fun with all the games that they played.

April Assembly

The school held its monthly assembly recently. 5th class provided the quote of the month which reminds us that sometimes it takes hard work to achieve something. Mr. Donovan's class did a wonderful song about the story of the Little Red Hen and an irish poem for the school. It was wonderful to see them do lovely actions to both of them. There was a special generosity  award to a girl in 3rd class who donated her own money to the school's recent Dancer for Cancer appeal. Ms Coleman had special awards for gardeners from Junior, Senior and 1st classes.

Summer Gardening.

Ms Coleman was very busy recently helping the children plant some healthy vegetables in our school garden. They also planted some flowers in front of the school, next to the railings. Sometime soon we hope to see some bright coloured flowers as we walk to school in the morning.

3rd class adventures

3rd class have been very busy recently. First they got to go on a trip to Blackrock Castle, where they got a tour of the observatory. Afterwards they worked with engineers from PM to make roller coasters. Later on in the week they walked down to the post office in North Main Street where they posted postcards which they wrote to pupils in another school.

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.
