After School Activities Term 3- 2022-23



Walk on Wednesday  17th May 

Our monthly Walk on Wednesday is taking place this coming Wednesday morning 17th May. We had a great turn out last month and we would really like to keep up the momentum.
We find that the children come in to class feeling really energized and more focused after the walk.
As always we will meet in the car park in Super Valu meeting at 8.10am and leave there at 8.20am.  
Thank you for supporting this health initiative.

World Book Day 2023

We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday March 2nd. The children got to dress up as a book character of their choice, each junior class was teamed with a senior class to take part in a ‘buddy reading’ session, the children completed a ‘Guess the Staff Member’ challenge. A huge word of thanks to everyone for getting involved and for making the day such a success.

Many thanks also to those who took part in the ‘Extreme Reading Challenge’. We hope you all enjoyed. Please see the video below:


Safer Internet Day 2023

On the 7th February the pupils took part in activities to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2023 an EU wide initiative to promote a safer internet for all users, especially young people. The children spent time learning about internet safety through participating in a variety of online activities and class discussions. There was also a poster competition for the children to participate in and an online internet safety talk arranged for the pupils.

If you would like to learn more about this initiative or about safer internet use in general, take a look at Webwise.ie where you can find more information and advice specifically for parents

Student Council 22-23

Our Student Council members are drawn from second to sixth class, following a democratic process. The Student Council is one of the ways the voice of the student body is heard and listened to in our school. Many suggestions proposed are discussed, debated and voted in at council level leading to their implementation throughout the year.
