Mission Possible School Achievement Awards 2019

Huge congratulations to Ms.Munnelly and to all our students who this afternoon were presented with an award at the ‘Mission Possible School Achievement Awards’ at St.Patrick’s University Hospital in Dublin.

This award saw our school community shortlisted and recognised as having successfully promoted Positive Mental Health Initiatives, focusing on wellbeing, resilience and empowering our students with a tool kit for life. Weaving wellbeing, our garden of positivity, walk in my shoes, wellness boards are important and welcome additions to our school curriculum and initiatives.

Throughout the past number of years Ms.Munnelly has lead a number of transformational projects that have had a huge impact not alone on our students but on our staff members alike. Today was a fitting recognition for this great work. We sincerely appreciate her hard work and passion in ensuring that all our students are given the best chance to succeed in life.

Finally well done to the students who represented their school and colleagues back at base so well earlier.

We are very proud of all our students and their engagement in ensuring Positive Mental Health is at the forefront of all our minds. Maith sibh go léir!

Ádh mór a chailíní!

Best of luck to all our ladies involved with the Charlestown U-10’s Girls who this morning travel to Croke Park as part of the Littlewoods Ireland GAA GoGames.

We hope all the girls, mentors, parents and supporters enjoy this very special day. Ádh mór a chailíní.

Students of the Week Friday April 5th

We had a lovely assembly earlier presenting of our latest students of the week. We spoke as we enter the summer months of the importance of being active, having a health lifestyle and learning to enjoy different activities and sports. Most importantly, we focused on enjoyable participation and learning to work and play with others.

Our teachers this week praised students for their hard work and effort. Some expressed their delight at the maturity and level of common sense on display this week. It is always a pleasure to hear of children achieving with a task that they found difficult or succeeding in something new. It shows that their hard work will pay off, if they persevere. Children learn by example and the praise we heard today was a great example for all of our students. 

Congratulations to those awarded Student of the Week. Keep up this great work!

To conclude a huge congratulations to Second Class who made their First Confession last evening. It was a lovely ceremony. A special thank you to Mr.Clarke who prepared the children so well, Mrs McCafferty for all her help in preparation/decorating the church and finally as always to Fr Doherty and Fr Johnston for their continued interest and support.

This month is Autism awareness month and Ms Ruane has coordinated a lovely display which certainly rings true in our school. 

A busy week awaits and we conclude our second term. Reminder we close   for our Easter break on Friday April 12th and re-open on Monday 29th at the usual time. Have a lovely weekend.
