Author Emma Cahill was with us before Christmas to read her book, ‘Under the Mask’, for our children. It was a huge hit with the students. Emma has written a free downloadable story that is available at the following link and also deals with managing positive mental health. http://www.emmacahill.ie/inside-feelings/

Over the next while, I will upload greetings from our staff. They miss our students very much and look forward to seeing you all again soon!
Today’s greeting is from Ms. Byrne. Enjoy!
Hello from Fiona! 🏃♀️
A greeting from Ms. Hearne!
Hello from Ms. Morris 💜
A greeting from Carmel 🌼
Hello from Finola!❤️
A message from Ms. D’Arcy!
I am thrilled to announce that we have been successful in renewing our Green Flag award! Heartiest congratulations to Ms. McDevitt, Carmel and our hard working Green School Committee on this great achievement.
With Covid19 keeping us inside a lot, we thought that this might be a great time for or whole school to learn a new skill together! Ms. Whittle has put together some videos on LAMH. LAMH is a communications system based on Irish Sign Language. Click the links below for short tutorials. We look forward to using it in September in our school!

I hope that you are enjoying the family time and getting some fresh air. I think it’s really important that we make the most of this time by spending meaningful time with family. I understand that distance learning is very much dependent on the dynamic of your family and the circumstances you find yourselves in due to Covid19. I hope that you are all well, above all.
I think, where possible, that structure is still important. Likewise, I would be passionate about recommending daily reading blocks. If possible, please limit screen time to late afternoon/evening time.
Our teachers will resume uploading work daily at 9 from Monday, 20th April. I stress that this is a menu of suggested work and is at the discretion of each household.
For other projects and curricular interests, I have compiled a padlet for your perusal. It includes curricular areas and health/wellbeing. There should be something in there for everyone.
