On Monday 6th October Dublin Fire Brigade visited the school to speak to the children in 3rd and 4th class about Fire Safety. Then on Thursday 9th October 3rd and 4th class, with their teacher Ms. Annette Boles, went on a field-trip to Glendalough, they were very lucky with the weather thankfully. So they had a busy week.
The whole school will be participating in a music day with Mr. Peter Kearney on Tuesday 25th October. There will be a Concert in the School Hall at the end of the day. We had Peter here before and it was a fantastic day so everyone is very enthusiastic about the performance.
Mrs. Edel Beckett is taking the children in Junior and Senior Infants to the Playbarn in Blessington, on Thursday 23rd October. At least that is indoors in case it’s raining!
Ms. Amanda Lawlor only stayed with us doing the cleaning and caretaking for the month of September. One of her children became ill and she found it difficult to juggle everything. We are delighted that one of our Parents recommended Ms. Teresa Mulvaney to us and it is working out well.
The children in 6th class are organising a Halloween Party for the school on Friday 24th October.
Once again this year we will be involved with two charities at this time of the year. The Samaritan’s Purse, Christmas Child Appeal where the children bring in shoe-boxes with gifts in them will be done over the mid-term break and The ReadaThon, raising funds for Multiple Sclerosis, started on 16th October and continues for a month.
Joanne from Dublin Bus will be paying a visit to the school on Tuesday 4th November to give a chat on safety etc. Our Home /School /Community Liaison Co-ordinator (HSCL) has organised a Cookery course for the parents, starting on Tuesday 4th November. Ms. Ann Barrett will be giving the course, well done Ann!
