On Tuesday Night last, 6th December, one of the schools quiz teams took part in the semi-final and final of the PhoenixFM School Duel Quiz. The team had already gotten through 2 knockout rounds and faced Scoil Olibhéir in the semi final. The team did a fantastic job to win by 27 points in the end. The final round took place in front of a live audience, but this didn’t phase the teams mighty knowledge. The two teams were very close through the first two rounds, but Scoil Ghráinne extended the lead to win by over 40 points. Congratulations to the team of Josh (Captain), Aaron, Claire and Hazel – You have done Mr. Byrne and Ms. Moloney proud. We will look forward to January when our 3 quiz teams will take part in the Credit Union quiz.
Dear Parents and families,
I am delighted to have been appointed Principal of Scoil Ghrainne CNS. I have heard many positive reports about your school, and having been Principal of another Community National School, I am familiar with this school model. I have known the outgoing Principal, Ken Scully for a number of years and he has helped me prepare for the challenges ahead. I would like to take this opportunity to wish him well in his new role as Director of Schools in KWETB.
School reopening has been successful and everyone is adhering well to the new guidelines and regulations. I want to acknowledge the cooperation that parents have shown with regard to following the guidelines. Staff are very busy following protocols and keeping all our pupils safe. As long as we continue to be vigilant we will remain safe.
Our focus for the month of November is on student and staff wellbeing. Amongst other things, we are prioritising the Daily Mile, daily energy check-ins, Stay Safe, internet safety and we are embedding the You Can Do It programme where our focus is on the foundations of getting along and building resilience. We are conscious that face-to-face Parent/Teacher meetings usually occur in November, however this year we are looking at other options in a Covid context. We will keep you informed in relation to this.
As you can see, Scoil Ghráinne is as busy as ever. I look forward to meeting you all over the coming months.
