Last Sunday Cairdeas organised a very successful Coffee Morning in aid of The Irish Cancer Society and €755 was raised on the morning. We would like to thank all who made the cakes and those who supported the Coffee Morning and enjoyed the chat!!!
We would like to thank all the children and parents for being so kind and generous in giving so many boxes for the Shoebox Appeal.
There was 113 boxes sent in and they have just left the school and on there way to children who will be so excited when they get them at Christmas!!!!!
Please note the venue for the Girls Final has been changed to Pairc Ui Chaoimh for the BIG DAY !!!!!!!
For our School Self-Evaluation we have decided to focus on Spelling. Teachers will be focusing on specific spelling rules from the ‘single word spelling test’ and pupils will be given spelling lists appropriate to their level.
This year we have decided to focus on STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Maths) at each class level. We will continue with the Scratch Computer Programming. Mr. O’Brien’s class will be taking part in the VEX Robotics, Ms. Mangan/Ms. O’Brien’s class will be doing the Engineering in a Box Initiative in conjunction with the Tyndall Institute and kindly sponsored by Jacobs Engineering.
We will also be focusing on promoting our Irish culture. Pupils will learn a number of Irish songs at each class level and perform them to parents during Seachtain na Gaeilge.
