Well the big news of the month was definitely our Whole School Evaluation (WSE)! Ms. Eileen O’Sullivan spent the week of 23rd February with us. We await the report at this stage and hope that our school receives a positive and encouraging evaluation.
Our school uniform was introduced in September 1996. We have decided that it needs to be brought in to the 21st century and we are changing the colour of the polo-shirt to a rather fetching yellow. It looks lovely and the majority of the school community are happy with it. We are also using a new supplier and the parents will be able to buy the uniform directly from the shop rather than the school having to order for them. This will be a great help to our wonderful secretary, Ms. Karen Mooney. Karen is normally tripping over uniforms for June and September!
The children in Junior and Senior Infants with Mrs. Edel Beckett and Ms. Geraldine Healy, Special Needs Assistant (SNA) and Edel’s Mum, Mrs. Yvonne McGlynn went to the Tallaght Library on Monday 9th March for a bi-lingual Drama of “The Three Little Pigs,” it was enjoyed by all.
5th and 6th class are going to the Zoo on Friday 20th March. They are doing a project on Nature/Wildlife.

The children in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class have been busy planting the various fruit and vegetables that were sent to all the schools this year from Agri Aware. It’s a really good project and the children love watching everything growing and of course finally eating them!
Once again we will be involved in the Skipathon this year. The money raised is for the Irish Heart Foundation.
