We had our virtual graduation today at 11am. We hope it went without any technical hitches. We want to send our best wishes to the wonderful pupils of 6th class 2020 as they embark on the next stage of their journey and show you a tiny clip from our celebrations… featuring our past pupil Lara Mc Donnell.
As we move into June we would normally spend a lot of time outdoors doing PE and practicing for the Sports Day. Due to the school closure, we have teamed up with Healthy-Kidz.com to provide you with resources so that your children will be able to stay active at home. We hope that your children will engage in the fun sporting activities over the next 5 weeks culminating in a Virtual Sports Day on 27th June.
Attached to this email is a link to the resource pack which will give you all the information you need to do these activities at home At the end of the pack there is a roadmap which sets out which 2 activities for each week, starting this Monday the 25th May with the Sprint and the Long Jump. Each activity has guidelines for you to use and each week there will be 2 new activities to practice daily (see roadmap).
As a bonus there is also a Healthy Kidz App that you can download for your children from the App Store or the Google Playstore. Children can record their activities and results on the app and also see what their classmates are doing. Once the App is downloaded you will need login with your child’s username and password which is given below. Further instructions are given in the attached activity pack.
We want to stress again that this is a menu of activities for children to enjoy. It is completely optional for teachers, parents and children and there is no need to use the app if you prefer not to.
We hope that you get the opportunity to spend time with your children doing these fun activities and we hope you all enjoy them.
Details tomorrow….watch out for an email from us !

Conscious of how tough a time it is for children in Ireland. I was asked to send a message to 6th class students in a school – but the message applies to all our children: you have saved lives, not many kids can say that when leaving primary school & there are brighter days ahead pic.twitter.com/sXgceAsrTb

One of our 5th class pupils had a very busy and creative weekend and he shared some of his work with us today. It is wonderful to see our pupils using their free time so well. Have a look at the variety of Art he managed to complete in one weekend. Another Banksy perhaps ?
