Naíonán Shóisearacha; Junior Infants
We have enrolled 24 junior infants for the next school year and fifteen new families. They are all very welcome to our school and we were delighted to meet them last Friday in the school.
- The attendance for the school year so far has been 91% .
- 3rd Class are taking part in the BLAST art programme and are working alongside environmental artist Annie Holland. Annie has been teaching the children about the importance of looking after the environment through art. So far they have made clay tiles with pictures of native Irish plants, prints of natural items found in the school yard, monoprints of their self portraits which they are making into environmental superheroes as well as Planet Protector badges! The children are thoroughly enjoying the project.
