Summer Fun

Dear Parents, Guardians, Pupils and Friends of the school,
Since I last reached out to you, there has been a lot going on in our school. Firstly, a big congratulations
to the 6th class girls who celebrated their Confirmation last night with the boys from St. Marys B.N.S.
Many thanks to Mrs. Burke for all of her hard work in preparing the girls and to Fr. O’ Shea for his help in
the preparations and for a lovely ceremony. The girls were exemplary on the night and we hope that
everyone enjoyed the occasion.

On Tuesday May 16th, 24 of the girls represented the school at the Primary School Athletics in the RSC.
The girls had a great day and got to both meet and compete against other schools. We even had a
medal winner! Thank you to Mrs. Burke and Miss. Kelly for bringing the girls…Well done everyone!

Rhythm and Shakes

1st, 5th and 6th class are currently receiving Rhythm and Shakes lessons every Monday for 6 weeks with Cathy. I know the girls really enjoy it and I was lucky enough to be treated for an excellent performancefrom 6th class last Monday. Keep up the good work!
Visit from Sr. Maria
Last Thursday we had a visit from Sr. Maria from the Ossary Diocesan Office who came to talk to the
girls about how they are getting on in school and what they are learning. As ever, she was very
impressed with all of the girls who were all on their best behaviour. Sr. Maria is always very welcome in
our school and we look forward to welcoming her back in the future.

Yard time
With the weather getting better, the girls in Juniors – 2nd class have had the opportunity to get to play onthe grass area at the back of the school during break time. They are having great fun and are enjoying

child’s tour.
I will be in touch again in the next few weeks.

Our u11 and u13 teams were in action last Monday in Kill. We played against two very strong Kill sides. The girls played exceptionally well and they never gave up. We are so proud of the girls who represent our school so well.They are also excellent role models for the younger girls and they have helped generate interest among our younger girls. A huge thank you to parents who helped us to fund the buses. Your generosity makes commuting to these matches possible. 

Amber Flag

We had a jam packed wellbeing week and we hope everyone enjoyed themselves. It was fantastic to try out activities like Zumba dancing (thank you Board of Management for funding), food tasting and cooperative games. A big thank you to the girls who led our cooperative games. They took their roles very seriously and it was a lovely morning. Another highlight of the week was Wear your Bright Colors Day. It always puts everyone in a good mood to see such bright colours around the school. We raised €304 as a result of your kindness. All money raised will go towards end of year activities. 

On a separate note, the application for Amber Flag was completed and sent off last week. We are waiting to hear back from Pieta House if we were successful so fingers crossed 🤞

Incredible Edibles
Fifth class have been working on the Agri Aware Incredibles Programme since the start of
this year. They have been learning about Irish food produce and following it from farm to
plate. They have learned about the role fresh produce plays in a healthy balanced diet. Over
the last few months they have also participated in Zoom calls with Agri Aware on topics of
food origin and healthy eating. They have been busy growing their own vegetables in the
school garden – planting potatoes, carrots, turnips, lettuce, chieves and strawberries. In the
coming weeks, we look forward to cooking and tasting the potatoes and hopefully the
strawberries will ripen soon. This week they submitted their logbook of learning to Agri
Aware in Dublin to showcase their amazing work. Well done to all our future growers and

Africa Day
Africa Day is celebrated on the 25 th of May. It is an annual worldwide celebration of the
people, cultures, food, music and dance from the African Continent. Our school and pupils
share many links with different countries on the continent of Africa. To mark this day in
school, we shared stories through beautiful picture books on different aspects of African
culture with all the classes. We have a very colourful flag display, created by fourth class,
showcasing all flags of the countries in Africa. There were two displays showing artifacts,
pottery, wooden animals, African patterns, famous African people and some beautiful books.
We would like to say a big thank you to our past pupil, who visited the classes in native dress
and spoke about different aspects of living in Africa. We had a wonderful day. we would like to wish all families and friends celebrating today and at the weekend a Happy Africa Day.

Dear Mams, Dads and families.

Our Christmas Carol Service takes place in the Parish Church on MONDAY AFTERNOON, 19TH of December and you are all very welcome to attend. The Carol Service will begin at 1.30pm.

The Carol Service will take about 35 minutes and after that the girls will return to school with their teachers, where they can be collected as usual.

Junior and Seniors Infants are to be collected at approximately 2.15pm from the school and the rest of the classes at their usual home times.

We would ask you not to interrupt the girls and their teachers while they are preforming by taking photos or videos. If you do take photos afterwards, we rely on your good sense not to publish photos of anyones child on social media without their parents’ consent.

We apologise for the inconvenience of the later pick-up time from school for the Infants on Monday 19th but hopefully the enjoyment of the Carol Service will make up for that.

We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 19th of December.

Yours sincerely,


Miss M. Kelly  – Acting Principal

ഡിസംബർ 19, തിങ്കളാഴ്ച ഉച്ചതിരിഞ്ഞ് ഇടവക ദേവാലയത്തിൽ ഞങ്ങളുടെ ക്രിസ്മസ് കരോൾ സേവനം നടക്കുന്നു, പങ്കെടുക്കാൻ നിങ്ങളെ ഏവരെയും സ്വാഗതം ചെയ്യുന്നു. ഉച്ചയ്ക്ക് 1.30ന് കരോൾ സർവീസ് ആരംഭിക്കും.
കരോൾ സർവീസ് ഏകദേശം 35 മിനിറ്റ് എടുക്കും, അതിനുശേഷം പെൺകുട്ടികൾ അധ്യാപകരോടൊപ്പം സ്കൂളിലേക്ക് മടങ്ങും, അവിടെ അവർക്ക് പതിവുപോലെ ശേഖരിക്കാം.
ജൂനിയർ, സീനിയർ ശിശുക്കളെ ഏകദേശം ഉച്ചയ്ക്ക് 2.15 നും ബാക്കി ക്ലാസുകൾ അവരുടെ സാധാരണ വീട്ടിലെ സമയത്തും ശേഖരിക്കണം.
ഫോട്ടോകളോ വീഡിയോകളോ എടുത്ത് പെൺകുട്ടികളും അവരുടെ അധ്യാപകരും പ്രീഫോം ചെയ്യുമ്പോൾ അവരെ തടസ്സപ്പെടുത്തരുതെന്ന് ഞങ്ങൾ നിങ്ങളോട് ആവശ്യപ്പെടുന്നു. അതിനുശേഷം നിങ്ങൾ ഫോട്ടോകൾ എടുക്കുകയാണെങ്കിൽ, മാതാപിതാക്കളുടെ സമ്മതമില്ലാതെ ആരുടേയും കുട്ടിയുടെ ഫോട്ടോകൾ സോഷ്യൽ മീഡിയയിൽ പ്രസിദ്ധീകരിക്കരുതെന്ന നിങ്ങളുടെ നല്ല ബോധത്തെ ഞങ്ങൾ ആശ്രയിക്കുന്നു.
