School News - Oct-Nov '07

We are delighted to be able to tell you that we have appointed our new part-time Learning Support Teacher, Ms. Maree MacGuinness.

The Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme is going down very well, the majority of the children are actually eating both the fruit and vegetables. The rewards are really “cool!”

We had our Harvest Assembly on Thursday 27th September. The children brought in lots of provisions which Rev. William Deverell brought to the Simon Community.

The children from 5th and 6th class went to the European Commission on Friday 28th September. It was a very interesting field-trip and they got lots of information for their projects. We went by LUAS which is a great asset to our school, we take it as much as possible when getting out-and-about.

The Start of Year Service, in Christ Church Cathedral, was very popular this year, most of the senior class attended.

Ms. Edel McGlynn and Ms. Geraldine Healy, Special Needs Assistant (SNA), will take the children from Junior and Senior Infants to Seán Walsh Park on Thursday 18th October for a Nature Walk. Let’s hope the good weather continues.

Once again the children from 3rd to 6th class have been invited to participate in the GAA Cross-country inter-schools event in Valleymount, Blessington on Thursday 25th October. Last year we were washed-out, surely it couldn’t happen again this year!

On Friday 9th November, 5th and 6th class will be going to the Planetarium in Armagh, this is always a great field-trip and the show helps them to really appreciate the skies above them.
