Maths Day 2018

February 12th, 2018

We had a very exciting Maths Day of celebrations today in the school! Every class came up with a couple of different games and presented them to every other class in the halla throughout the day. We had great fun sharing our games with older and younger children. We hope we can have more days like this in the school!!


Grandparents Day 2018

February 1st, 2018

 

 

We were delighted to welcome so many grandparents and other family members and friends to our Grandparents Day service earlier today. We had such a large crowd that we had people in every empty space in the hall. Every class told a short story, a poem or sang a song for their grandparents. It was such a lovely morning. We were delighted to get the chance to tell our grannies and grandads how special they are to us in our lives. They are famous now that their photo is up on the internet!! Check out our gallery to see more photos from the day in our Grandparents Day Gallery

 


Top Attenders

November 22nd, 2017

As part of our attendance strategy, it is an important aim of the school to have children attend as frequently as possible. Every two months, any child who has full attendance for the previous two months will receive a small reward to recognise being fantastic attenders!! As you can see, we had many children who missed no day in September and October. We’re hoping more children can join them for November/December.


Aliens!!

November 5th, 2017

First and Second Class were invited to our local library on Wednesday 25th October for a Halloween- themed craft session.  The children created their own aliens using various materials. We really enjoyed making slimy zombies using borax, water and glue! A Big Thankyou to the local library in Shannon for this invitation.

 


Halloween Quiz 2018

October 26th, 2017

We had a fantastic turnout last night for our Halloween Quiz. 32 teams in total battled it out for what was a very enjoyable night. Many thanks to all our sponsors who donated so many raffle prizes on the night. Thanks to all the children in the school who did art over the last couple of weeks which made our hall SPOOKTACULAR looking.  Special thanks to all our staff who helped prepare for and organise the night. They were a particularly colourful bunch this year!! Congratulations to the McKey family who won the best dressed team and to the Marren-O’Callaghan family who won the table quiz.
