This year Scoil Ghráinne Community National School have been working together to prioritise wellbeing and to ensure that our pupils feel safe and happy in school. In relation to this, an afterschool club; Wellbeing Warriors has been set up and to date we have worked with children from 3rd, 4th and 5th class. Wellbeing Warriors focuses on helping children to develop a positive growth mindset, enhance their communication skills and empower children to express and understand their feelings. Wellbeing Warriors after-school club is a fantastic opportunity for your child to become a champion of his or her own wellbeing through a variety of strategies such as circle time activities, mindfulness and the development of social skills in a safe and nurturing environment. Below is some of the amazing work from our 3rd and 4th class group. Our Personal Shields Our Trees of life show our roots, our strengths and our aspirations.

Many students in 1st and 2nd class had fun creating wonderful pieces of art together in Art Attack Club last term. The teachers were so impressed with their fantastic ideas! We have been very busy in Art Attack Club since we came back to school! The students created their very own Monsters today using lots of different coloured paper! They really enjoyed adding different features to their monsters. For example, eyes, ears, hair, spots, teeth and even some students had fire coming out of their monsters mouth! Every monster was unique! Have a look at the all the artwork we have done in the images below! We are looking forward to creating lots more artwork together this term! ...

During October and November a number of children from 3rd to 6th class participated in MS READaTHON. The MS READaTHON is Ireland’s largest and longest-running sponsored read for young people.

Well done to the boys and girls who participated – we hope you enjoy your...
The school quiz teams recently took part in the Credit Union quiz in St. Peregrine’s GAA clubhouse. Both teams did very well and managed fantastic scores on the night. Another team then took part in the CUDA quiz in St. Brigid’s Boys School on the 12th February. This team scored a very impressive 83/100 correct answers which was just behind the teams in 3rd place.

I hope you all enjoyed the Winter break. It is unfortunate that we find ourselves in
this difficult situation but I am confident that we will survive the challenges we face

overwhelmed however. It is important that children stay connected with their learning
and we want to support them as much as we can. With that in mind , we will put up new
ideas and suggestions on the website each week in addition to what teachers will be
