Dear Parents,

Irish Dancing continues tomorrow Friday 20th April, I look forward to starting our new term of dancing with the children. This term we will be learning new dances, this will range from a mixture of both solo and team dancing. The following classes will be learning:

P.1 – P.3: ‘The Light Jig’

P.4 – P.7: ‘The high Cauled Cap’

Can I remind parents to please ensure their child or children has a bottle of water with them.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss White

Happy Easter

The Nursery team would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Easter!

We have had a busy few days at Nursery! Yesterday we had the pleasure of P.7 helping us. The children did a clean up outside in the Nursery playground and enjoyed listening to stories being read to them by the P.7’s.

 

After that we had a special guest the Easter Bunny, and the children received lots of yummy eggs.

Stem Challenge

img_3047img_3048We had 2 P7 teams away to St Paul’s HS today taking part in the STEM Challenge. They were presented with a scenario where an airplane had crashed, passengers were injured and they had to construct a bridge to span a gorge to allow access to the crash site. Their constructions were made using paper, art straws, paper clips and light weight card, it had to span at least 30 cm and hold a weight of 250gms for 30 seconds. Teams were scored in 3 areas, team work, planning and furfilling the brief. Whilst neither team were placed on this occasion, their constructions were well made and easily withheld the force created by the weight. Well done to all 6, boys and girls!

Thank you so much

What a wonderful event our “Chapters and Chatter” Afternoon tea party turned out to be. We are delighted with the positive feedback we are receiving.  It was an afternoon enjoyed by all ages, it was great to see so many people getting into the spirit of the event and joining in the activities.

Thank you so much to our sponsors for their generous donations and support.  The raffle prizes went down a treat.

Our sincere thanks to Martina Crilly who completely transformed Ti Chulainn into a magical fairytale land.  Her vision and talent is amazing and we truly appreciate your time, enthusiasm and support.

Thanks also to Mary Toal and the committee of Ti Chulainn for their support.  Mary has worked so hard to assist our fundraising ventures, we are very grateful for all you have done for us and we look forward to working with you in the future.

We are super excited to announce that between St Patrick’s day and the tea party we have raised a total of £3,123 for the Nursery.  We intend to start work immediately on our outdoor area.  As a school we want to thank the community and beyond for your generosity and ongoing support.  We are overwhelmed and truly humbled by the response.  Our sincere thanks.  Please share any images

Every class has been assigned their own patch of the school grounds to clean up. At the end of the project we will be weighing the bags of litter to find out the total weight of all the waste classes have collectively gathered.
