To all our wonderful Presentation families,

We hope you are keeping safe at this difficult time. We know that our children miss the structure of school life and the company of their friends.

It is difficult to provide younger children with work which is meaningful and educational. However we would like to support families at home by suggesting a number of websites which provide enjoyable,educational activities for children.

We  also suggest a number of other activities.

This post will be updated regularly while we are out of school.

We also recommend reading, cooking and baking, construction toys , drawing and colouring , jigsaws , board games, painting, junk art, playing outdoors, daily walk/run, cycling etc. Please ensure that all members of your family adhere to social distancing guidelines as issued by the HSE.

World Book Day-March 5th

Lots of boys and girls dressed up as their favourite characters on March 5th. Ms Simpson and her class made a beautiful collage.

Great collage

Challenge to Change Room 13

Third Class girls in Room 13 are currently taking part in Challenge to Change . Their project is entitled ” Is There a Climate For Change?” They have done lots of work on this project. They created informative posters in groups. They want to raise awareness of global warming throughout the school and wider community. There is a challenge to change noticeboard and a committee to steer the project.

The girls have made a list of small practical things we can all do to save our beautiful planet. These changes can make a big impact globally, and can help preserve our planet for future generations.
