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!
We have had a busy few weeks since our Spring break. 3 classes were grounded due to positive COVID tests. Thank you again for adhering to our protocols because it’s really important that we don’t get complaisant at this stage. Children should say at home if they have fever, sore throat or a new cough and advice sought from GP or HSE website. Remind them to sanitise as often as possible and to keep social distancing.
We would encourage you to keep a very close eye on your children’s interaction with social media. This has caused a number of problems in the last few weeks and the dangers cannot be underestimated. Remember mobile phones are not permitted in school and they will be confiscated if found.
There are lots of coats etc. unclaimed in our lost property department if you are missing anything. School life continues as normal as possible Intercultural Day is scheduled for Friday May 28th, details to follow. School tours will be on site this year or virtual (details to follow). We are planning for 6th class graduation at the moment, so if you wish to share ideas please let us know. It is a very important milestone for our 6th classes and students in Croí who are all going on to Post Primary. We are still looking for volunteers to help with gardening and painting, if you have time to spare. Creative Week is planned for the end of the month so we can indulge in developing our ”creative brains”. Active Week is also planned for June. Our return to school date for next year will be Thursday August 26th.
