Pancake Tuesday Thank you so much to the mums who came into school and cooked pancakes for everyone! There was lots of fun eating them and lots of fun outside running our pancake tossing race.
World Book Day and Book Fair
Thursday 7th March was World Book Day but we decided that one day wasn’t enough to celebrate the gift of reading so we had a week of reading activities.
Thank you to Adele for hosting our Parents’ Reading Workshop and we also thank all the mums and dads who came along. We hope you enjoyed the session.
We had great fun running the annual World Book Day Quiz….it was very close at the end but thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
There was also lots of storytelling and writing going on.
Thank you for your support of this year’s Book Fair. A total of €537 worth of free books was raised for our library. Thank you to Mrs Geraghty for organising the Book Fair. Children get so much enjoyment and learn so much from stories and books…please encourage them to read.
Blue Star Programme
On Friday 8th March we had a very special visit from Mairead Mc Guinness, MEP and Vice-President of the European Parliament. The children in the middle room wrote a letter to her as part of the Blue Star programme and were delighted to have their questions answered and meet her in person. We thank Miss Mc Ginley for her work on this project.
A Beetle Drive in aid of school will be held on Monday 8th April at 7.00 p.m. We are looking for the following donations that can be used for Raffle Prizes: children’s toys, boxes of chocolates/sweets, bath sets etc. Raffle prizes can be dropped into school on or before Monday 8th April.
‘Decorate an Egg for Easter’ Competition
There were some very imaginative entries last time and we are very much looking forward to this year’s entries. All eggs must be blown or hard boiled and need to be in school by Monday 8th April for judging. Good luck and have fun!
Please make sure that the children have pencils, white board markers, glue etc. in their pencil cases. Please replace any missing items.
School will close on Friday 12th April and will reopen on Monday 29th April.
