We are having a very healthy start to 2016 in First Class! Everyday Ms McGeough is taking a photo of the healthiest lunches and their smiling owners and sending it off to Operation Transformation. Look out for our healthy lunches on the television!

We are also keeping fit and strong with lots of exciting sport! On Tuesday morning Mark gave us a special skipping lesson. We learned lots of new tricks. Now we just need to practice them on the yard. Last week Michael came in to show us how to play cricket. Everyone had a turn batting. In P.E. we are learning a new dance to Meghan Trainor’s song Better when I’m Dancing. It is great fun!

All classes took part in a Skip-n-Rope workshop last Tuesday. The children learned lots of new tricks and skills which they will be able to use at home and on the school yard. At the end of the day, all classes attended a showcase in the school hall, where different children demonstrated some of the skills that they had learned.

Welcome back after the  break. We hope that you all had a great Christmas, it seems like a long time ago now! We are slowly revising all the previous themes of the Green Flag and trying to reduce our waste, water and energy consumption in small but sustainable steps.

May we take this opportunity to remind all the parents to send in as much ‘Copper’ as possible which will be allocated to helping establish the outdoor classroom.

On a similar theme, we will be taking part in a ‘ bag drop’ which involves collecting clothing items , pairs of shoes etc. The money we raise from this will also go towards the outdoor classroom. So gather as much clothing as you can. The more bags, the greater the amount of money we will receive for the school. We will also be eligible to enter a grand prize for the school that collects the most clothing  – A possible €2250!
