Halloween fun

On Friday we had a fun dress up day for Halloween, this was used as a fundraiser for Team Hope and Make A Wish Foundation. We have been doing the shoe box appeal for Team Hope and focusing on the various countries the boxes are sent to as part of our Global Citizenship for our next Green flag. This project will run until Wed 8th November in our school when Ms. Casserly will bring the boxes we have put together to the delivery point. 

During the day we had assembly where Ms. Fallon presented the three children that had full attendance during the 2016/2017 school year with a pencil and certificate. Well done on a fantastic achievement!

Mrs. Dervin’s class sang songs and said their poems to entertain everyone.  We were all very impressed with all they have learned during the first term of Junior & Senior infants.  1st & 2nd class children sang ‘Gobillino the witches cat’ to finish off the assembly.

Have a happy & safe Halloween everyone!

On Friday we had our first assembly of the school year.  The junior and senior infants sang songs to begin.  Then Ms. Fallon spoke about a few important items like homework, punctuality, attendance and being a good friend and a good student.  The children in 1st and 2nd sang ‘Circle of Friends’ and 3rd and 4th sang an Irish action song they have been learning.  The children in 5th & 6th class will perform at our next assembly. It was lovely to be able to use our large g.p room for the assembly.
