Easter Prayer Service
Raffle Prize Winners
The draw for the Easter hampers took place after the Prayer Service and we had a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny himself to present the prizes! Congratulations to Keelan in Room 1, Sophie in Room 17 and Mia in Room 16! We hope you enjoy your hampers.
Visit of the Easter Bunny
The Easter Bunny visited all the classrooms and everybody got a treat from our very generous Parents’ Council. There was much excitement, dancing and fun!
A big thank you to the Easter Bunny for coming to visit us and to our Parents’ Council for all the treats.
There was lots of great Easter art to be seen all around the school. We hope everybody enjoys their holidays and we will see you all back at school on Monday April 25th.
Save The Bees Campaign
We here in the Pres are looking for your help in saving our bees. One third of all the food we eat is pollinated by bees and thirty percent of Irish bees are in danger of becoming extinct. We are gathering collection cards from Supervalu. We are not asking you to change your shopping habits. Due to all your support, we now have 600 cards and we are hoping to gather another 300 by May 12th so that we are in with a chance of winning a share of €50,000. If you shop in Supervalu, or know anyone who shops there, we would be grateful for your help. Thank you to everybody who brought in cards and to Ms Moran for all her work on the project. Míle buiochas!
Everybody is learning all about our bees.
Every Child A Reader Project
We got some wonderful books from the Every Child A Reader Project. They have been delivered to our senior classes as part of their library/accelerated reading programme.
Here are fourth class in Room 17 enjoying reading their new books.
Spike Ball Blitz
On March 31st the girls from 5th and 6th participated in a Spikeball Blitz in The Watershed. The other teams taking part were from John of God, the Gaelscoil, CBS, and Del la Salle schools. Our girls had a great day and really enjoyed taking part in the blitz.
Congratulations to our sixth class girls, who celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation on April 2nd. It was a lovely ceremony. We hope you and your families had an enjoyable day celebrating the event. Thank you to Ms Collins and Ms Carrigan for all their work preparing for the sacrament.
