Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                                         

Life in our wonderful school is certainly very busy these days. Due to the snowy weather and all the distractions, we decided to have Seachtain na Gaeilge this very week and it is proving to be a great success. Tá na buachaillí agus na cailíní ag déanamh gach iarracht an Ghaeilge a labhairt ar fud na háite. Inniu, bhí cruinniú iontach sa halla nuair a bhí gach rang ag déanamh taispeántas speisialta, ag canadh, ag damhsa, ag insint dán……bhí sé mar Seó Tallaine Éireannach!!

All the boys and girls have been making efforts to speak in Irish and earlier today there was a wonderful gathering in the hall when every class put on a special performance, singing, dancing, saying a poem……it was like ‘Ireland’s Got Talent’…..without Louis Walsh!

Next week the focus will be on handwriting and every class throughout the school will display their skills on the boards outside their classrooms. An independent adjudicator will choose the neatest handwriting and there will be prizes……so I hope everyone does their very best.

4th Class are hosting a ‘Breakfast Morning’ just for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Classes tomorrow, Thursday 19th. It is a fund-raising event for Lucy Leahy, a little girl who is seriously ill. Noah Dixon is co-ordinating this event. It will start at 9.30 am in 4th Class. A suggested donation of €5 would be most gratefully received. We would like to say a big ‘Thank-you’ to all the children and parents of 4th Class for donating all the food. It promises to be a very special occasion.

There will be events next week for the other classes of Junior Infants up to and including 2nd Class.

2nd Class are very busy learning their prayers and songs for their special day of First Holy Communion which will be taking place on May 19th.

A reminder that there will be no school on Monday 23rd April because all the teachers will be attending an obligatory curriculum workshop day. Apologies for any inconvenience.

And now for Miss Murray’s joke…….                                                         

What type of music are balloons scared of ?……….Pop music!!!


Best wishes always,


Niamh Murray  (Principal)
