Sunflowers in Junior Infants
Ms Dooley’s class were busy growing sunflowers this week. They planted them in the school garden and we hope to see giant flowers before the end of the year.
Unfortunately we have joined the growing number of schools who have opted to ban fidget spinners at school. We know the children love them but they are proving a HUGE distraction in class, for the children using them and the children watching them. They are also causing problems in the yard, with some children feeling pressured to own one. We have asked the children to leave them at home.
We had a beautiful day today for the Sponsored Walk. We all assembled in the 2nd class yard at half nine. The Junior Infant classes were the first to leave first then Mr. Mac Cann’s 5th class led the way for everyone else. We walked up Auburn Avenue and around through Deerpark. Then we headed down Peck’s Lane and Beechpark Avenue arriving back to school an hour later, tired , hungry and considerably quieter. The teachers reported that everyone’s behaviour on the walk was excellent. Thank you to all who took part.

The third term for Ms.O’ Brien’s dancers was to begin this week but has now been postponed . We are sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment but as this is due to a family bereavement we know the children and their parents will understand. We will let you know when Ms. O’ Brien is able to resume classes.
