The 3rd – 6th class summer performances took place this week and a big crowd showed up to the school to see the wonderful talents of the children. 3rd and 4th classes did songs and poems based on the theme of weather. This is very fitting as we have had a lot of crazy weather this year between storms, snow and blistering heat. The children really enjoyed the performances and they did their teachers proud. 5th and 6th class had a great time preparing songs on the theme of ‘Dreams’. They chose songs from the musical ‘The Greatest Showman’ as well as other classics. The confidence shown by all of the children was fantastic. A special mention should go to all of the teachers who put so much effort into the show also: Ms Kavanagh, Ms. O’ Rourke, Ms. McGuire, Ms. Woods, Ms. Moloney, Ms. Winters, Mr. Mulroy, Ms. Carry, Ms. Lynch, Mr. McCarthy, Ms. Greene, Ms. McPartlan – Well done!
I hope you are all keeping well. We fully appreciate that the past few months have been incredibly challenging and we are looking forward to getting back to some sense of normality as the school sets to reopen on Thursday 27th of August. We are currently putting plans in place for the safe reopening of our school and we will be sharing all the relevant information with you over the coming weeks. We will be using this Aladdin platform to communicate this important information. There will need to be significant changes to the way we usually operate in terms of movement around the school building and in terms of the delivery of the curriculum but we plan to take all the necessary steps to ensure the safe and successful reintegration of every child in our school.
In other news, after almost 8 years as Principal of Scoil Ghráinne CNS the time has come for me to move on. I have really enjoyed my time as the Principal of Scoil Ghráinne and I am very proud of our collective achievements over the years. Scoil Ghráinne is a great school and I wish my successor the very best of luck in their new role.
