We will be continuing to administer tests this week so please try to avoid absences or morning appointments if possible.
We will be visiting Rossnowlagh on Wednesday 29th May. The older children will be taking part in a workshop on the beach. This is part of our science work and we will be investigating the plants and animals which live in a beach environment. The younger children will have their own activities. Some of you may remember our last attempt to visit the beach. Hopefully the weather will be much kinder this time!
Next Thursday will be our last day of swimming. The children have had their swimming tests and have all done well. We thank Alan and Ezra for giving up their time and voluntarily accompanying us to the pool and also Cathrena for staying late on Thursdays to come with us too.
The Sponsored Walk will be held on Thursday 30th May at 5.30 p.m. Mr Barnett has kindly agreed to help with the cycle again this year and we thank him for that. Children will need a helmet if they are planning to go on the cycle. Donations of crisps/biscuits can be sent in to school any day before Thursday.
Internet Safety Talk
Garda Paddy Battle will be coming into school on Wednesday 29th May at 8 p.m.to give a talk to parents on Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying. Please try to attend if you can.
Get Well Soon
I am aware of two parents who are unwell and have recently spent time in hospital. We send our best wishes to Mark, Abbie and Ben's dad and to Nuala, Louise and Nathan's mum and we hope they are both feeling better soon.
New Junior Infants
Our second session for our new Junior Infants will be on Wednesday 19th June from 9.30 a.m. until 11.00 a.m. This time the children will remain in school without Mums and Dads and they will need to bring along a snack for break time.
Thank you for the fantastic efforts made this week with the children's lunchboxes! It is wonderful to see the children munching happily on carrots, lettuce. cucumber, sweetcorn etc.
There are still plenty of prizes to be won and the children are enjoying finding out what is in the Food Dude's box.
I think this one is a rocket...
