Michael Kirk from LIIDC presented a plaque to us recently to acknowledge the ongoing partnership between local industries and businesses and our school. LIIDC have been very generous and helpful to us over the years and we look forward to continuing this positive relationship. Our refurbishment of our classrooms last summer would not have been possible without the help of the LIIDC. Michael is pictured here with some of our students and our Principal, Micheál Rea.
Today the Junior and Senior Infant children experienced a puppet show in school. The children thoroughly enjoyed it.
The show was based on the story of Hansel and Gretel, with a modern twist. Here a some photos of the puppet show…
Junior Infants have been very busy decorating the classroom. We are very excited about the arrival of Daidi na Nollag, Santa Clause. He is visiting the school on Thursday this week.
Also this week the children will enjoy a puppet school, Hansel and Gretel.
Recently 6th Class were revising the topics of Sa Bhaile in Gaeilge and Money in maths. In art we thought it might be nice to design our very own House Money Boxes. Take a look at our village below.
We were delighted this week to welcome Minister for State, Dara Murphy to our school. He was welcomed by our Students Council and they told him about all the things they like about our school. They also asked him to help make our school a better place by providing funding to modernise some of the older parts of the building.
Minister Murphy also spoke to our Board of Management, teachers and Parents Association. He visited Junior Infants and 2nd Class. He was very impressed by our school and acknowledged the great work being done by our school community. He promised to help us in anyway he could to get more resources for our school. We very much hope this happens sooner rather than later!

Below is a picture of our new Green-Schools committee! Last May we achieved our fourth green flag for travel. The theme for the fifth green flag is biodiversity. The new committee will meet on a regular basis to discuss biodiversity ideas and initiatives which will be implemented into our school. It is also the committee’s job to ensure that work carried out in previous themes is still ongoing. Keep a watch on the website to find out more about the theme of biodiversity and what activities we will be doing as a school to enhance the biodiversity in our local area.
Play is a very important part of the Junior Infant day. The children have the opportunity to form friendships, chat about things, share ideas and thoughts with others, solve problems together, learn from each other and the children have fun while doing so.
Last week the new Junior Infants took a tour of the school. They were met with a warm welcome in all the classes and some of the Junior Infants met their brothers and sisters! They also visited Jacinta and Mr. Rea!
