On 29th March one of our parents, Robert Hogan, will swim a mile in Graigcullen swimming pool as part of the Swim For A Mile challenge. He will donate any money he raises to our school Play Area Development fund. We would like to say a huge thank you to Robert and wish him the very best of luck with this challenge! Please follow the link below if you would like to donate and please feel free to share and spread the word!
We aim to re-open as normal on Monday 5th March. Surfaces around the school may still be icy so please exercise extreme caution and please use the main gate only. As always, safety must come first, so please only travel if and when you feel it is safe to do so. Thank you
As part of Operation Storm we were very excited to welcome An Garda Síochána to our school. We learned a lot about Road Safety and how to use the Internet and mobile phones safely. Poor Ms Purcell was arrested and was only set free when she promised not to give her class any homework! The highlight of the visit was getting to meet Donagh the horse and the Garda Mounted Unit. Thanks so much for visiting our school!
We celebrated Friendship Week in school from the 5th to the 14th of February. It was a busy week, with classes doing activites such as ‘Secret Friend,’ compliments sheets, friendship art, poetry and writing, anti-bullying lessons, class charters and lots more. We were reminded to ‘THINK’ before we say something – think; is it True, is it Helpful, is it Inspiring, is it Necessary and finally is it Kind? We finished the week with a Friendship Assembly where people were rewarded for their random acts of kindness and we announced the winners of our poetry, colouring and writing competitions. Check out some of the photos below!
