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.

On Friday last, our entire school took part in the 10 at 10 initiative promoted by the TV programme Operation Transformation. Every child and teacher in the school met in the front yard and were put through an intensive warm-up workout, before we went on a lovely long walk around Shannon. We had great fun and enjoyed the exercise. Huge thanks to our Infant classes who looked after 6th and 5th classes during the walk by holding their hand.


Grandparents Day 2017

February 3rd, 2017

As part of Catholic School’s Week, we celebrated Grandparents Day in the school on Thursday February 2nd.  We were blown away by the amount of grandparents and parents who came to visit us. Each class did a little performance ranging from poems to songs to messages for our grandparents. It was a lovely event and loads of the children got to have their photo taken with their grandparents. You can see a selection of photos in the slideshow above but you’ll find our full gallery of photos from the day by clicking the following link to our Gallery:  http://tolasns.com/blog/gallery-2016-2017/nggallery/galleries/Grandparents-Day-2017/page/1
