Welcome back to School

Three weeks into the new school year and all is well. It’s great to be back as we learn to keep safe, rekindle relationships and have some fun in the classroom and outside.

The children are engaging with the Weaving Wellbeing programme, an Irish-designed SPHE programme which teaches children evidence-based skills and strategies to develop positive mental health and well-being.
It is based on Positive Psychology, which is the science of well-being.
The aim of the programme is to empower children to become active participants in creating, maintaining and boosting positive mental health throughout their lives.

We are endeavouring to create a sense of belonging, a sense of safety, a sense of calm and connectedness and a sense of hope.

We are learning that while everyday may not be good, there’s something good in everyday.

These positive parts of our day we call our ‘Rainbow Moments.’

We are also learning about our Character Strengths and how and when we can use these to help ourselves and others.

Look at some of our lovely displays.

Horticultural Show 2019

Beautiful vivid displays and wonderful imaginative and creative works were to be enjoyed yesterday at our show. We are hugely indebted to Eddie, to Swantje and to GearĂ³id who ran the show and helped to make it a wonderful success again. Thanks to all who took part!

End of year concert

We had a lovely evening last Wednesday as our musicians took to the stage and did the school and parents proud. Well done and particular thanks to Ms. Lawler and Bjarke for all their hard work.

Sports Day

We had a great Sports Day last Friday and we were so lucky with the weather!

Huge thanks to Mr. Lynch and all his helpers for organising the activities!
