We have been very busy this month. We celebrated World Kindness Day on Friday November 13th.

Friday November 20th is the day we celebrated Presentation Day, which is also International Children’s Day.

November Art and Projects

All around the school from Junior Infants to Sixth classes, there is wonderful art work on display. We had a competition to celebrate the life of Nano Nagle through art and we got some great entries. We had poems for Nano and a letter to her too. Congratulations to the winners , in every class, choosing the winner was a difficult task, as the standard was very high. Some classes even had two winners! Projects on Science, History and Geography are also on display, they are amazing!

Safe Cycling

Sixth classes have completed their course with Cycle Right training. Fifth class have now just started their 6-week cycling course. They will spend five weeks on the yard learning all about safe cycling. Their last lesson is then on the road, putting into practice all they have learned. We wish them the best of luck and safe cycling in the future.
