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 3rd April or Tuesday 4th April for judging. Good luck and have fun!
Break the rules at school day
Next Wednesday 5th April, we are going to break our school rules all for a really good cause. As well as teaching our young pupils to read, write and count, we hope that they will develop into young people who care for others. You will be aware that last August, Mrs Patterson’s brother in law, Alan suffered a terrible injury in a trampolining accident. We would like to support the work of the Alan Patterson Trust as they help Alan on his way to recovery. Obviously our pupils are really struggling with the concept of being less angelic for the day but we hope with a little financial support, they will be able to break a few of the rules. More details will be sent home at the beginning of the week.
On Friday 24th March we had Dale from RTEjr and Naturally Wild visit our school. Our theme was ‘At home in the trees’. We planted some new trees in the school grounds and learned about lots of different creatures which make their homes in trees.
