100% Attendance! Well done to those students who had 100% attendance this year.
Active Schools Week We had a very busy week from the 11th to the 15th of June. The children were all very active all week and everyone had a great time.
Every morning we all met in the hall for some warm up exercises and dancing with Gráinne and Katie.
On Monday each class completed the 1,000 exercise challenge! They all received a certificate at the end of the week.
On Tuesday we had our Teddy Bears' Picnic and some orienteering.
Our Wednesday walk was a walk with a difference this week. Our Junior and Senior Infants all completed a 1 km run. Our First Class completed a 3 km run. Our 2nd Class out did themselves and completed a 5 km run. Well done to all the children.
After the walk we had a special presentation for 2nd Class in the hall.
1st and 2nd place for the boys.
1st and 2nd place for the girls.
Most improved since September.
On Thursday we held our annual sports day.
To finish off the week we had a disco in the hall. The children really enjoyed showing off their dance moves!

On the 30th of May 'Turtle' from OWLS came to visit the school. She brought the children on a mini beast hunt around the school garden.
We were delighted to receive our first Green Flag for recycling. The Green Schools Committee proudly showed it off to the rest of the school during assembly.
Walk a mile with a smile
A huge thank you to all our families who supported our sponsored ‘walk a mile with a smile’ initiative. This was a fantastic event for the school and the children enjoyed the fun stations throughout the walk. We are delighted to say that over €1800.00 was collected. We were blown away by the generosity shown to this worthwhile cause. A defibrillator was purchased along with a cabinet and two first aid kits for the school. Money has also been set aside by our BOM for whole staff First Aid training over the summer.
