Well done to our daltaí na seachtaine!
Thank you Ms Connolly for making these lovely sun-catchers with us.
The annual Diocesan service for schools in Dublin and Glendalough took place on Thursday 13th October. Ten children from 6th class represented the school at the service in Christchurch Cathedral.
They also took part in a drumming workshop along with pupils from Castleknock school and Athy model school. Following a 45 minute workshop, the children (and teachers!) performed to a packed cathedral.
As announced in September’s newsletter, we will be having a Grandparents’ Day on Friday 28th October at 11am. All children are welcome to invite their grandparents or an older person who’s important to them. As we had a huge turnout of grandparents last year we ask parents not to attend unless the grandparent needs help to get around. A cup of tea/coffee with homemade goodies will be followed by some short performances by all the classes. After that, grandparents will be welcome to visit their grandchildren in their classrooms. We should be finished by about 12.30pm.
The teachers would also love to hear from grandparents who would like to talk to their grandchild’s class about some aspect of life in ‘the olden days’. Memorabilia and photographs always go down well. (Contact the class teacher or Siobhan if you know someone who would be interested). We would prefer if these talks took place on another day that week (Monday 24th to Thursday 27th) as there will be a lot going on on the day itself.
The School Book Fair is running from 12th to the 14th October.
This year we ran a poster competition from 2nd to 6th class. Some classes did posters promoting reading, others did posters to promote the book fair. The winners received €8 vouchers to spend at the fair. House points were also given for the five entries judged the best in each class. Here are the winners:
Our clay hedgehogs are getting ready for their long winter sleep.
One of our mums, Jill Mulready is running the marathon and has kindly decided to raise money for the purchase of playground equipment in the school.
