Parents Association Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting of the Parents Association takes place on Monday 3rd of October at 8.30pm. We would like to encourage all parents to attend and offer your support to the Parents Association. The Parents association provides so much support to the school through all the events that they organise. For example they organise busses to Cumann na mBunscol matches, the 6th class graduation - hoodies and gifts, tea and coffee after the First Holy Communion, The Witches Walk every Halloween and Santa's visit at Christmas. Without their support none of these activities would be possible. The parents association are always looking for new members and they welcome your support.
Our New Sensory Room 'Cloudy Falls'
On Friday 23rd of September we opened our new sensory room. A competition was held within the school to give the sensory room it's own unique name which reflected the tranquility of the room. There were lots of amazing suggestions, however, Christian from 4th Class came up with the winning name 'Cloudy Falls'. Lots of parents, members of the Board of Management and pupils were present to celebrate in the official opening of the new sensory room. We must extend a special thank you to Moyvalley Meats for their donation towards the sensory room. Finally, thank you to Ms Djennadi and Imelda for setting up the sensory room for the students.
Open Day in Cullentra House Stables
Gordon Elliot and all the team at Cullentra House Stables hosted an open day on Saturday 17th of September. They provided refreshments, paraded Tiger Roll, General Principle and Silver Birch for all who attended. All monies raised will be donated to the Injured Jockeys Fund and to both the primary and secondary schools in Longwood. Thank you for the donation!
Junior Infants Religious Display
Junior Infants have been learning about how God loves the nature around us. There are lots of changes in the season of autumn. The children learned about the changes in colour in autumn and all the beautiful things that they can see around them. The farmers are preparing to feed their animals for the winter, while other animals are getting ready to hibernate.
