An Nuacht – 27th November 2014

School is closed tomorrow, Friday 28th November, Multi-Denominational Day.

Unfortunately, we have to ask parents not to park in the school yard at any time.

The yard can only accommodate staff and after school coaches.

Any increase in traffic poses a safety risk to all our children.

Parent-Teacher Meetings

Many thanks to the teachers for their hard work and late nights to facilitate parent-teacher meetings, and sincere thanks to all the parents for your attendance and patience in the event of delays. If you were unable to have a parent/teacher meeting yet, please contact your child’s teacher to make an appointment.

Learn Together Assembly

Today we20141127_120715 had a Learn Together Assembly. Learn Together is the name of the Ethical Curriculum taught in the school. Each class shared something with the school about one of the four strands of the curriculum: Belief Systems, Equality and Justice, Moral and Spiritual Development and Ethics and the Environment.

We shared songs, poems, photos, artwork and powerpoint presentations. The school choir sang two new songs ‘Friends’ and ‘Just One Candle’ under their new director, Mary Hayden, and the whole school sang together at the beginning and at the end of the assembly. They sang a song we used to sing in the Red Cross many years ago called ‘It’s the Springs Up in the Mountains’ as well as our school song ‘Together in Harmony’ composed by Eamonn Hehir when his children were in the school.

We celebrated our Junior Infants’ first term at school by looking at photos of them dancing, laughing, working, playing in the park and generally having a great time in school.

A big thank you everyone who helped make this a very special assembly.

This could be the perfect Christmas present for Grannies, Grandads, aunts and uncles or anyone you know would like to see your child perform on stage.

 “I was in a play called ‘On the Wire’. It was about a soldier who came back from World War 1 and was shell shocked. I played his son, who was upset by how much he had changed. It was a great experience. I had to do two full shows every night for a week. It was in the Old Sailors’ Home, which was really nice but freezing when I had to wait back stage. The cast and crew were so much fun and on the last night we had an after party and they all presented me with cards, presents and photos from the show.”

Jasper 5th class

Tomás Birdthistle recently took part in the Lord Killanin Trophy at the Pembroke Fencing Club in Dalkey, County Dublin. This was his first competition and he really enjoyed himself. As a left-hander, Tomás has a unique advantage in fencing and his club, Blades of Limerick, is very proud of how he did in the competition. Tomás trains every Monday night at 1830 in the Crescent Comprehensive College and he would welcome any new members to the club.

Is there any parent who is involved in the printing business? If so can you please leave your name and contact number with Louise.
