Tomorrow you will receive your induction date, time and starting date for your child. We are looking forward to meeting you all next week. Any problems with the date please contact me via email as provided or phone the school.
The Nursery and Primary one teachers are looking forward to meeting you and your child in August. We intend to launch a new and exciting induction program the week beginning August 24th. At present there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding how our education provision will be in September however what we are certain about is that safety, good health and well-being of your child will be our priority. The guidelines from the Education Authorities are constantly being updated and thankfully moving in a positive direction. You will shortly receive correspondence from the school which will contain further information. Enjoy the Summer holidays and stay safe.
This year’s Nursery Graduation was extra special, one by one each child was congratulated and their Nursery journey was celebrated. It was just so lovely to see them all again and their smiles in the following video says it all. Thanks to all the Parents for joining in and understanding the bizarre rules that in this current climate we had to impose to ensure the good health of our school community. Thanks also to Noelle from Shanroe Photography who captured these precious moments. A wonderful day was had by all – a day we will all treasure 🌈
What a brave and very worthy fundraiser Mrs Lisa McKeown is embarking on. Lisa is a school parent and a member of the school’s Board of Governors. On behalf of your fellow Governors and the entire school community we wish you success with your efforts and we would encourage everyone to support Lisa in anyway possible. I’m sure Sè and Eimear are very proud of you. Check out Lisa’s story on her Just-giving page.
Last weekend the Nursery class enjoyed an imagination story or as we call it in class, “a Story from your head”! It is a real favourite during our school week as we spin a wheel to see which children will feature in our story. The fact there is no book to focus on really develops their listening skills and imagination skills. Below I have included the link for our Imagination story. The children’s follow-on task was to draw a picture of what our new pet dragon would look like. It was great to see their finished work which they shared through Seesaw. This project was particularly special because our partner eTwinning school in Norway shared the story with their Kindergarten Class. I was delighted when their teacher Mr Daniel forwarded some of the artwork his group produced. We are currently engaging in eTwinning Meetings discussing the return to Nursery after the Pandemic, the Norwegian approach is extremely interesting and we will definitely be exploring some of their suggestions.

This week the Nursery were looking at the first letter of their own name. They focused on the initial sound and formation of this very important letter. They look very happy in their photographs and have produced some very creative work. Well done 👋
