Cheerios Childline Breakfast Morning
Although we are trying hard to raise funds for ourselves this year, we also believe that it is important to support other causes. We will be holding a 'Cheerios Breakfast Together' morning on Tuesday 8th October. Cereal and milk will be provided for the children in return for a donation of €2 (or whatever you would like to donate) . The children will need to bring their own bowls and spoons!
All proceeds will go directly to Childline. For more information, you can visit their website here.
Famine Interactive Workshop
We will be taking part in an interactive workshop on Wednesday 9th October. The workshop will explore the events of the Irish Famine and will involve the children in performing a play.
This year's Tree Day is Thursday 10th October. We hope to add to the trees we planted last year.
We hope that many of you will contribute to this year's Shoebox Appeal. Last year, school donated 38 shoeboxes to the Team Hope Appeal. It would be great to beat this total this year. For more information about what to put in the boxes and where they go, please visit the Team Hope website.
We are looking forward to this year's Unihoc which will be held in the Community Centre on Thursday 17th October at 5 p.m.
The photographer will be in school on Thursday 24th October. Little brothers and sisters (or even Mammy and Daddy) are most welcome to come in and have their photograph taken too....just let me know in advance so that I can organise times for this.
On Wednesday 2nd October, the children in the Senior Room took part in a rehearsal for the Peace Proms Concert. They deserve much credit for the effort they put into singing and for how well they knew the songs after only four weeks of practice. We are now very excited about the concert and would love as many parents and friends to come along and support us. It promises to be a wonderful occasion and one which I think the children will always remember being part of.
Thank you to Mr Barnett for his onging work in the school garden and harvesting this year's crop. Thank you also to Mrs Gourley for arranging the crops in church for the Harvest Thanksgiving service.
We are always keen to encourage singing and dancing in school. There are definitely some little stars of the future in here!
