Well done to all of the children that created a Christmas Shoe Box this year. They will be lovely Christmas gifts for different children across the world. We collected over forty in our school this year. Fifth and Sixth Class had the job of dropping them down to Tullow Pharmacy, which is our local collection centre.
Today, the children and staff dressed up for school to celebrate Halloween. We had lots of different costumes and the children looked terrific. The children had a fun day doing lots of different Halloween themed activities.
Today, we had our End of Year Service in the school hall. Children were presented with their certificates for swimming, attendance and gratuation from their class. Some children only missed 3 days of school this year, despite a Global Pandemic. Congratulations to these children. Thank you to Canon Brian for joining us today and presenting the children with their certificates. Thank you to all the parents that joined us for our celebration.
6th Class presented Ms Brownrigg with a hoodie to remember them by and some gifts from them and their families. We are sad to say goodbye to these children but know they are ready for the next chapter of their lives! Best of luck to the ten Sixth Class children, as they head off to Kilkenny College and Tullow Community School.
Today, 2nd Class – 6th Class went on their school tour to Kilkenny Activity Centre. They did Bubble Soccer, Splatball and an Assault Course. The children had a brilliant day and the water slide at the end was a big hit. To finish the day off, the school treated the children to a SuperMacs. I’m sure the children slept very well after a busy day!
Today, Junior Infants to First Class went on their School Tour to Kia Ora Mini Farm in Co. Wexford.
For many children, this was their first School Tour, so there was great excitement on the bus. The children loved feeding all of the animals and playing on the bikes. Thank you to all at Kia Ora Mini Farm for being so kind and helpful!
Today, we had our annual Sport’s Day. The children were split into four groups and worked through our four activity stations.
2- Basketball and Dodgeball
Thankfully the rain didn’t break through until we were finished! Well done to all of the children for participating in all of the activities. It was great fun! It was lovely to have parents back in the school yard, supporting the children!
Tullow Friends of Ukraine have been selling sunflower seeds in order to raise money for people in Ukraine. They donated some to the school for us to plant. We look forward to watching them grow in our school garden.
