Thank goodness we have managed to keep the “Swine Flu” at bay. The new sanitizers which we installed during the summer are obviously helping. The children are particularly vigilant in their use.
The various field-trips which we went on during September went very well.
Ms. Caroline Rountree has taken over the Green Schools project while Mrs. Edel Beckett is on Maternity Leave. A new committee has been formed and has met for the first time this year already.
1st and 2nd class with Caroline went to Knocksink Woods on Friday 9th October.
Ms. Annette Boles is doing Early Irish Settlements at the moment and she took her 3rd and 4th class to the National Heritage Centre in Ferrycarrig, Co. Wexford on Friday 9th October. It’s a long trip but well worth it.
Ms. Mary Conroy, our National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS) psychologist will be working with us on Thursday 15th October on the Continuum Support to Staff Workshop.
The children in Junior and Senior Infants with their teacher Ms. Linda Morrow and Special Needs Assistant (SNA), Ms. Geraldine Healy are going to Tallaght Adventure Centre on Friday 16th October.
5th and 6th class will be going to Armagh Planetarium on Friday 13th November in conjunction with their project on Astronomy.
We have a little surprise organised for the children on Thursday 22nd so obviously we can’t let “the cat out of the bag” at this stage. Watch this space!
The children are involved in both, the MS ReadaThon and the Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child, again this year.
A big thank you to Ms. Miriam Gibney who put the school forward for an Impact Award from GlaxoSmithKline, Miriam came to the school on Monday 12th October and presented us with a cheque for €300.00.
School will close for the mid-term break on Friday 23rd October at 12.00pm, re-opening on Monday 2nd November.
