WISHING OUR FABULOUS STAFF AND PUPILS & THEIR FAMILIES A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A HEALTHY AND SAFE 2021. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR ADAPTING SO SMOOTHLY TO ALL THE CHANGES AND CHALLENGES WE WERE MET WITH THIS TERM.
Congratulations to all the children who received awards for December:
Santa was in contact with Ms. Moran by email on Monday December 14th and he asked her to award certificates to children for healthy eating, good behaviour and for being a star pupil. Ms. Moran had a very busy week giving out the certificates as so many children received them. Well done to all the children who received a certificate on behalf of Santa. He is so impressed! And Rudolf was delighted to hear about all the children who had carrots in their lunch boxes!
THE RAFFLE FOR THE FOUR HAMPERS TOOK PLACE ON DECEMBER 18TH. €650 WAS RAISED TO PURCHASE MATHS & SCIENCE EQUIPMENT FOR THE SCHOOL. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED THIS FUNDRAISER AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS:
ON DECEMBER 21ST WE HAD A SURPRISE VISIT FROM SANTA! WE WERE THRILLED TO SEE HIM AND HIS ELVES. SANTA COULDN’T COME INTO THE SCHOOL BECAUSE HE HAS TO SOCIAL DISTANCE BEFORE HIS BIG TRIP ON CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD TO DELIVER TOYS TO ALL THE CHILDREN. HOWEVER, HE GOT SOME OF HIS ELVES TO DROP OFF A SELECTION BOX FOR EVERY PUPIL AND THERE WERE DELIVERED TO THE CLASSES BY MS. MORAN.
DECEMBER 18TH WAS OUR CHRISTMAS JUMPER/COLOURS DAY. HERE ARE PHOTOS FROM THE CLASSES IN THE SCHOOL. LOOK AT ALL THE JUMPERS, CHRISTMAS HATS & COLOURS!
4TH & 5TH Class composed some lovely Christmas poems:
A Christmas Wish by 5th Class
I walk in the snow,
I hear a crunch.
There’s gum on my shoe,
the sound of plastic scrunch.
When Santa comes around,
He won’t be glad.
All of this rubbish
makes him sad.
So let’s all play our part.
Tell your friends to make a start.
This is our world!
Remember that to make a change,
To fulfil our hearts.
A Greener Christmas by 4th class
So what is green Christmas all about
Well this poem will tell you throughout.
Excess and food waste is a disgrace
That’s a truth we all should face.
All sorts of toys for girls and boys
Really bring a lot of joy
But the cost of this is environmental
Carbon footprint is detrimental.
Santa flying in the sky
All this waste makes him cry
Now’s the time to make amends
Stop this waste, it should end.
HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF DECEMBER ACTIVITIES AND DISPLAYS. YOU’LL FIND THESE AND LOTS MORE IN THE POSTS FROM DIFFERENT CLASSES ON OUR WEBSITES.
