At Sports Day, we had the pleasure of raising our new Biodiversity flag for the first time! We congratulated Ms. McDevitt and the Green School Committee on their hard work and praised how they made the initiative so interactive for all the students. Our green school committee will be rewarded with ice cream and pizza before the school year is out!
We were thrilled to welcome our incoming junior infants on Friday. They were brought to meet their new teacher, Ms. Whittle and they had a look around their new classroom. Thanks to our 6th class students who buddied up with them to make them feel at home. They had their faces painted and then participated in a fun race for which they all received a participation medal. Many thanks to Ruth and Daniel who facilitated the uniform sale and to Rochella who welcomed our new families to our school community on behalf of the Parents’ Association.
We were very lucky with the weather for our sports day. It held off long enough for everyone to have a great day of sport and community on our grassy pitch. Many thanks to our Parents’ Association and Mr. Breen for all their work in organising this great day! There was a tasty BBQ and a fresh fruit stall which provided much needed refreshment for our athletes. We had face painting and there was lots of music playing throughout the day! Each child received a medal for their participation. Thanks also to Anthony Masterson who came and entered into the spirit of the day!
Check out our gorgeous photos of our school mini field trip to Clones beach. This fulfilled the active aspect of our Biodiversity flag project. Thank you to Ms McDevitt who organised and to Julie Robertson for coming to talk to our school about coastal care. How lucky are we to have this on our doorstep! Memories are made of this……
