08 Jun

At our assembly today we remembered all our past pupils who are completing their Junior and Leaving Certificates at the moment. We really hope all their hard work is paying off and the remaining exams go well.

While this week was a short week it was again very busy as we prepared for our class and end of year graduations. We also continued with our GAA Coaching and prepared for Sports Day. The highlight for many this week was of course our swimming lessons. It really was magical to see all the boys and girls walking from our school to their local pool.

Three recurring adjectives were used to describe the children who were awarded students of the week. These were consistent, conscientious and kind. These are wonderful descriptions of children examples of all that we strive to achieve with our students. Each week our children are role models for the rest of our school and we as teachers are always thrilled to hear the reasons for their success. At times it can be a challenge, especially as we head towards the end of term, but our children are always doing their best. It really is great to see this progress and that development can occur at all times throughout the year. These students progress only highlights the belief that your teachers have in you! Well done to you all. Maith sibh go léir.
