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.


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.


Fun Walk 2017

June 8th, 2017

On Friday, May 26th our entire school went for a mega walk all around Shannon. We had lovely weather for it and had great fun, even trekking up Tullyglass hill!! We were greeted with a welcome surprise when we saw members of the school’s Parents Association greeting us back with a cool refreshing drink each. Thanks to all parents who helped out on the day and to all our fantastic families who helped to raise over €4,000 for the school. Special thanks to all our Junior and Senior Infants who looked after the children in 5th and 6th classes…they wouldn’t have gotten up that hill without the help of our youngest pupils!!


Easter Bonnets 2017

April 25th, 2017

Pupils from all classes were very busy before the Easter holidays making their Easter bonnets and Easter ties from recycled material. There was some very impressive bonnets and ties on display in the hall on the day of our holidays.


Dentist Visit

March 27th, 2017

 

We had a very exciting week last week in junior infants.  Anca Stamate a local dentist visited with us.   She spoke with the children about how to brush their teeth in order to avoid cavities.  The children played a guessing game where they guessed how many spoons of sugar are to be found in sweet drinks, treats and breakfast cereals.  Many of the children won prizes during this game.

Anca told the children that they must brush their teeth for 2 whole minutes twice a day.  We had great fun practicing this.  At the end of her visit, Anca shared a present with each of the children and invited the children to see her dental surgery in Drumgeely.

In the afternoon, the children walked to the dental surgery where they each had a chance to sit in the dentist’s chair as it was moved up and down…not at all scary!!  It was a very enjoyable trip and I’m sure the children are looking forward to their next trip to the dentist.
