Prizes for Parents

Unfortunately our annual Christmas fair was cancelled again this year but instead members of our fabulous PTA are running a festive Christmas raffle this Friday. There is one mega adult prize for each class along with several smaller children’s prizes. Any pupil who brings in a donation of €5 or more will be entered into the class draw.  With only 30 pupils in each class, the odds of winning are pretty high!

 

Santry Cross Country

Mr Lowery and Mr. Mac Cann took 50 pupils to Santry on Tuesday to take part in the finals of Fingal Cross Country League. It was a dreadful day but the weather did not dampen the enthusiasm and the steely determination of all the athletes . All the hard work and training certainly paid off and they all ran the best possible race. They returned to school with two titles, Best School and  Best Girls’ Team . Nora was on hand to take some great shots.

Turkey has hatched!

We hoped they wouldn’t hatch before Wednesday but with the hot weather the turkey chick decided he wanted out! Sheila sent this clip so we can see his efforts.

Early Maths

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We have introduced Maths support in the Junior Classes using the Ready Steady Maths , Numicon and Mata sa Ranga Programs whilst the support in the Senior Classes is mainly in problem solving.

 

The videos on this page were taken in Senior Infants and show the children playing Ready Steady Go Maths Games. These games have been devised for children to play as part of their number activities to help them develop and consolidate important ideas in number in a fun way. This program is being taught in Senior Infants with the help of the Learning Support Team. It is part of our Numeracy School Improvement Plan.
