Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

Well done to the class winners and Elsa and Kate the overall winners of our anti bullying poster competition. The standard was very high and Róisín and the children in the Student Council really enjoyed looking at all the enteries.  Thanks so much to everyone who entered.

Naomi & Kate’s 4th class had a great week.  Firstly, they had a visit from baby Charlotte and her mum who spoke to the class about newborn babies, their needs and their development.

They also visited The Ark and took part in a visual art and storytelling workshop about The Adventures of Pinocchio.

James from Beccy’s 5th class presenting his last four art projects.

Daniel’s junior infants having great fun learning about weight by using scales and trying to balance them!

3rd class went to Drumcondra Library Monday for some storytelling.

The hurling team are playing their first game today in Johnstown Park today.

End of Year School Tours

The following school tours have been arranged for the classes.  You may have received a payment request on Aladdin for your child’s school tour.  This can be paid in instalments if you wish from now until the day before they are due to go on their school tour.  If you paid a voluntary contribution of €250 in this academic year you will not have received a payment request as this covers the cost of the end of year school trip.  Please contact the school office if you have any queries in relation to this.
