Reading for Fun

Reading for Fun

Reading for fun has been up and running for the past 5 weeks in both 3rd and 4th class. The 3rd class children have been reading Roddy Doyle’s book ‘The Giggler Treatment’ and in 4th class the children have been reading ‘The Meanwhile Adventures’. Both books have proved to be very popular with the children and parents alike. The school is very grateful to all the parents who have volunteered to help out with reading for fun over the past number of weeks. In total we have had over 25 parents helping out in the school this term. This is great to see and the...

FIDI goes to Finland

FIDI goes to Finland

FIDI is our project mascot. He gets his name from the four countries involved: Finland, Ireland, Denmark and Italy. In February 2013, FIDI had an opportunity to visit Finland, along with some of the teachers.  In the pictures you can see FIDI taking part in class with the pupils in Koskelan Koulu, in the city of Oulu. Also you will see FIDI watching a skiing lesson and an ice skating lesson in P.E., and trying his paw at husky sledding.

Gospel Choir 2012

Following the departure of Mr. Codd we are delighted that the school’s gospel choir continues thanks to the work of Ms. Brolan. Over the last few weeks our Gospel Choir has been busy preparing for Christmas. We are very excited to be performing in Killinarden Church on Christmas Eve. Our choir has been invited to sing during the children’s Mass at 5pm on December 24th. We have been working hard like Santa’s little elves to have our songs perfected and our Christmas robes ready to wear in time for the big day. Looking forward to seeing you all there.!

European Project 2012 – 14

You are probably aware that the school has become involved in an international education project. This is a two year project that involves pupils and teachers from five different schools communicating and learning together on a variety of topics. The other four schools in the project are from Pisa in Italy, Kolding in Denmark, Oulu in Finland and St. Mark’s SNS, just up the road in Springfield. Teachers from all of the other schools spent a full day in Sacred Heart in October, and saw our pupils performing Irish songs and dance; they visited their classrooms, and also...

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun went very smoothly again this year. The children loved it and gained a lot from playing maths and card games with an adult. We have a lot of excellent card players in 4th class now so adults beware! Thank you to the adults who took part. We suspect they had more fun at times than the children! Reading for Fun will be on in the New Year, in March at some stage. Please let the Home-school Teacher know if you are interested in working with the children on this.
