Cleaner Communities Awards

We are delighted to announce that our school has been awarded a Cleaner Communities Award from Fingal County Council.

We were presented with the prize for "Best Presented School Grounds" on Friday at a special award ceremony in Donabate/Portrane Community Centre.

Our Green Schools Committee went along to the awards and were very proud collecting our prize.

Well done to everyone - we have all worked so hard to keep our grounds looking clean and tidy. Let's keep up the good work!


Our Assembly this morning began with Room 19 and 20 singing "Dipido" and saying the poem "Aon, dó, muc is bó".

The tidiest classrooms this week were Rooms 2, 6, 13 and 17. Well done!

Our golden rule for this week is "We listen, we don't interrupt". A group of noisy children distracted some other children trying to play a memory game. There was so much noise, the children playing the game couldn't concentrate. We saw that listening is very important. We have to listen to everyone around us so that we can concentrate properly on our work.

We had four Star Students this week and we finished with our School Song.

Our First School Assembly of the Year

We had our first Assembly this morning. The Senior Infants, First Class and Second Class children all came together in the Hall.

Following our Morning Prayer, Room 10 and 12 performed "It's a Small World" for us and said the poem "Gugalaí Gug". Everyone gave them a big clap.

Our four tidiest classrooms this week were announced as Room 1, Room 7, Room 13 and Room 20. Well done! 

Everyone was welcomed back to school and we talked about how we were all connected together, just like a spider's web. Some special helpers, one from each class, made a spider's web with wool for everyone to see. We are all connected by kindness, and we talked about the kind things we do for others in our school. Our Golden Rule for this week is "We are kind and helpful".

We finished our assembly with the announcement of five Star Students, who have worked really hard and behaved excellently in their classes. Finally, we all sang the school song.
