From the Principal’s Desk….

Continuing with last week’s green theme, today marks a significant milestone.  Our application for the state funded 6kw of solar panels has been submitted and I look forward to working with the winning contractor to make use of our extensive flat roof.  Whether or not we increase our coverage to 16kw of photovoltaic panels is still up for discussion.

While that is happening the regular busyness of school life continues.  We are literally going green for our céilí today.  This is a culmination of weeks of practice between the classes learning their steps and hopefully having fun along the way.

Seachtain na Gaeilge has seen lots of fun events.  I was laughing at the poses and incredible strutting up and down the catwalk of our Seo Faisean idir Rang 2 agus a 3.

Yesterday Rang 5 agus Rang 6 were incredibly busy hosting all the classes for the Margadh Císte.  There was a high standard of baking.  The children I asked assured me they had done most of the work. The brioscaí and donnóga I tasted were delicious.  It is always a highlight of the week and justifiably so.


If that wasn’t enough activity our senior infants fully embraced Seachtain na Gaeilge and told us all the story of Sicín Licín in the assembly this morning.  A shower of rain meant we had a very quick reshuffle to host it in the hall.  The last minute change didn’t phase them in the slightest.

Our Parent Body and Parents’ Association were equally involved, hosting a maidin caife ar an gCéadaoin.

And finally a few dates to remember.  We will be welcoming next year’s junior infants to see the school and classroom on the 17th May.  This means that there will be no school for our current Junior Infants on that day.

Claudia our Forest School Leader will be meeting the parents of Senior Infants next Tuesday to talk about what Forest School is and to answer any questions that you may have.

Next Friday the school will close at 12:00 as we close for the Easter break.  We will be reopening on the 8th April.  See the information about Childcare’s Easter camp in their section below.

If the pictures have you feeling like you missed out on the céilí, there is always the Céilí Mór where you can have the same energy that only a céilí can bring where people are moving and no one is entirely sure if they’re doing it right.  

Have a lovely long weekend,


From the Student Council.

The School Council are working on developing a list of books to add to the class libraries.  This is all being facilitated by the Parent’s Association. 

Go raibh maith agaibh.
