Autism Awareness

This Friday we are having an autism awareness day, so that the children learn a little about what autism is and have a better understanding of those with autism that they will interact with throughout their lives.

The children are invited to wear blue for the day & bring in a small donation for the Autism Charity ‘As I Am’.

StarCamp Summer Camps

If anyone is interested in making a booking for one of these Summer Camps, we have a few money off vouchers that can be given out on a first come basis. Please let your child’s teacher know if you would like a voucher.

 

6th Class Graduation Day

We are currently planning to have our 6th Class Graduation Day on Tuesday 29th June.

We are hoping to have this event outdoors & to be able to invite 6th Class parents to attend like last year. This of course will all depend on the Covid guidelines at this time, as to how many people can gather at an outdoor gathering.

If number restrictions won’t permit parents to attend, our school staff will still hold that day for 6th Class Graduation, so that they can have a special last day in Primary School.

All other pupils will finish school for their Summer Holidays on Monday 28th June.

 

School Payments

Reminder that this annual payment of €60 per child for the school year is now long overdue. Amounts still owing were sent out by text to all families still in arrears. Prompt payment would be much appreciated.

Please can payments be sent into school in a sealed named envelope ASAP.

This helps with some of the costs for extra art, cookery & gardening supplies, photocopying, computer lessons, 24 hour personal accident insurance for the full 12 months of the year, as well as extra activities like cycling workshop, extra sport coaching, etc.

Thank you to all who have already contributed in full.

Ukulele painting

As part of schools ‘Creative Clusters Programme’ our school now has 20 Ukulele’s for the children to learn to play.

The Senior classroom (5th & 6th Class) have been busily painting designs onto them & they now look amazing.

Well done to all involved.

Due to Covid restrictions our planned music teacher series of lessons won’t be going ahead until the next school year. 

We are currently sorting an outdoor Ukulele Workshop for 6th Class, later this term, so they don’t miss out on the musical fun, after all their hard work and creativity with their art designs.
