SCHOOL NEWS, April 2008

Ms. Edel McGlynn got a very positive response to our Green Schools application in the form of a letter from An Taisce. There were just a couple of suggestions made and there have now been sent on to the committee.

The Bí Gnóthach project “Baking Blasters” went really well this term and a total of €351.51 was raised by the children in 5th and 6th class. This will be sent to the Peoples Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). 5th and 6th class went to the secondary school finals and award ceremony on Friday 7th March. It was very interesting to see the work produced by the secondary schools.

We are delighted to welcome back three past pupils currently in Transition Year in St. Mark’s, to teach volleyball to the senior children. It’s lovely to have Stephanie Graham, Rebekah Connolly and Ailish Berkeley with us again for 6 weeks.

The children in Junior and Senior Infants with Edel and Ms. Geraldine Healy, Special Needs Assistant (SNA), went to the playground at Jobstown Enterprise Centre on Friday 7th March. Started out as a beautiful morning but…!

We returned to school after the Easter vacation on Monday 31st March and we have a very busy term ahead of us.

On Wednesday 2nd April the children from 5th and 6th class are going to the Arts Centre for a Drama Workshop.

Edel is taking the Infants to Newgrange Farm on 10th April. The Infants with Edel, Ms. Caroline Rountree’s 1st and 2nd class and Ms. Annette Boles’ 3rd and 4th class are participating in the Skipathon, for the Irish Heart Foundation on Friday 11th April.

1st and 2nd class with Caroline and Ms. Bernie Dixon, (SNA) and 3rd and 4th class with Annette are going to Glenroe Farm on Friday 18th April.

The staff is attending an Active Playground Workshop on Wednesday 23rd April. We feel that the new games are badly needed for the play-times.

The school photographer will be coming on Thursday 24th April and we will be involved in the National Spring Clean on Friday 25th April. The children will be dressing up in “Fancy Head-Gear” for the event!

On Tuesday 29th April, our DEIS (Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools) cuiditheoir, Ms. Erica Mulholland will be speaking to the staff about the programme, Ready Set Go Maths.

Finally children from 5th and 6th class are participating in a Basketball Tournament, organised by the Gardaí on Wednesday 30th April, in the National Basketball Arena. Ms. Karen Mooney, our multi-talented secretary, coaches the Basketball Team.
