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.
Camp Sonas will be running in Scoil Ghráinne from Monday 17th February to Thursday 20th February (mid-term), for children from Junior Infants to 4th class.

Scoil Ghráinne is engaging with the Food Dudes programme since Wednesday 22nd of January.
What is Food Dudes?
Food Dudes is an award winning curriculum-linked evidence-based healthy eating programme, developed to encourage children to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables. It is based on repeating tastings of fresh fruit and vegetables, rewards and positive role models.
Over the coming weeks fresh fruit and vegetables will be delivered to the school on a daily basis. All classes will be participating and all families will receive additional information later this week.
Scoil Ghráinne is delighted to announce the launch of Aladdin Connect. This platform will improve the communication between the school and all families.
Access codes were sent out by text message to all parent(s)/Guardian(s) this morning. If you did not receive a text message or if you are experiencing any difficulties please contact the school office without delay.
