This morning our talented Nursery children performed their Nativity play for an assembly hall full of very proud family members. I am extremely proud of each child in the class for having the confidence to get up in front of such a large group and perform their lines, songs and dances to such a high standard. Our sincere thanks to Martina Crilly – Creative designs, for her wonderful backdrop, the twinkling lights just made it all the more magical. Unfortunately we didn’t get any photographs of the group during this mornings performance so if you have any please share. Thank you very much for your generous donations, we raised almost £300, this is much appreciated. We will use this money to purchase new small world toys. Thanks again.
This morning the Nursery group made their annual trip to the local Post Office to send our letters to the North Pole. Our sincere thanks to the staff of Spar, Mullaghbawn who were super friendly and welcoming. Your generous treats for all are very much appreciated.
A huge thank you to everyone who returned sponsor cards following our sponsored walk at Hallowe’en, an amazing total of £1,800 was raised for school funds!
All the names of those who returned their sponsor cards were put into a raffle and 2 draws made, the lucky families were the Kellys and O’ Callaghans (Nursery pupil), each family received a gift voucher for Smyth’s Toys.
An additional raffle was held for all those who raised around £50 and over, the lucky winners were the Ferris Family.
One P7 pupil who overall raised the highest amount, well in excess of £100, was acknowledged for her superb effort.
A team of Health Visitors will be meeting with all Nursery Parents on Monday 18th November. This is a follow up to your completed 3year Health Review Questionnaire. Please ensure you have selected a suitable time for your visit, the available time slots are on display in the Nursery Foyer.
The Nursery have throughly enjoyed the bright Autumnal days in school, have a look at our photographs to see the adventures we have had. Our sincere thanks to our Numeracy co-ordinator, Mrs O’Hagan for organising a number treasure hunt; this was in conjunction with Maths week. It was very exciting and really gave the children the opportunity to spy numbers, shapes and colour in their immediate environment. We had lots of spooky fun in our sensory room and we finished our term with a fancy dress Halloween party. Have a safe and happy Halloween from the Nursery crew.
