The Daily Mile

The Daily Mile
Our school has fully embraced the Daily Mile movement over the past few weeks! Many thanks to Ms. Kelly for bringing the initiative to the attention of staff. The children walk, jog or run with their classmates each day. Everyone has fun taking part- it is not P.E and it is not competitive- while building relationships, confidence and resilience. This can be summed up in the Five F’s of the movement-
· Fitness- children become more aware of a healthy lifestyle
· Fresh Air- children thrive on the sights, sounds and seasons
· Friends- children use the language of friendship to support each other
· Fun- children enjoy taking part- this is what makes The Daily Mile so successful
· Focus- daily physical activity helps children concentrate in the classroom and is proven to raise attainment.

Junior Infant Induction Day

We welcomed our incoming Junior Infants for September on Thursday, 25th at 9.30am for their Induction morning. It was lovely to see all their happy excited faces seeing their new classes for the first time. Unfortunately the new class teachers for rooms 11 and 13 have not yet been allocated but we hope they still enjoyed their day. We will see you all back here on the first day of September. 

Enjoy your summer!!

First Holy Communion

First Holy Communion
We would like to wish our four 2nd classes a wonderful day of celebration on Saturday
 as the pupils receive their First Holy Communion. We hope they enjoy the morning and their special day with their family and friends. Saturday will be the culmination of months of preparation by pupils, teachers and their parents. A huge amount of effort goes into the two Communion masses. Special thanks in advance go to the four class teachers- Ms. Ní Mhaonaigh, Ms. Feeney, Mrs. O’ Neill and Mrs. Cummins for all their hard work with their classes.
10am mass- Mrs. Cummins and Ms. Feeney

12pm mass- Mrs. O’Neill and Ms. Ní Mhaonaigh

Thanks also go to Ms. O’Brien, Mr. Donovan and Ms. Feeney and the school choir for all their efforts and practice so far this year. Our choir and music from Mr. Donovan, Ms. Ní Mhaonigh and Ms. Feeney add so much to the masses on the day and make them even more special.
