School Year 2021/2022

We are all delighted to be back in school again. I want to assure you that the whole team, teachers, SNA's, secretary, caretaker and the Board of Management will do our utmost to keep the school open by following the guidelines. The children have all settled back well and have adjusted to the changes very well. We welcome the 14 junior infants who  are adapting to school life, greatly helped by the senior infants in the room, one advantage of multi-grade classes in rural schools. We also have a new pupil in 3rd class. Our total enrolment this year is 108. We welcome Ms. Joanne Maher SNA who took over from Ms. Geraldine O'Flaherty who retired last August.  

 We've been lucky to have had fine weather since our return so the classes have plenty of space at break times, especially now with the all-weather pitch. All toys used in the yard at playtime are sanitised before the next usage. We have increased yard supervision so that two teachers and two SNA's cover 1pm - 1:30pm break. There are three adults on morning supervision also from 9:10am - 9:20am. Parents have been very vigilant since we returned and wisely are keeping sick children at home - thank you for your co-operation. 

Teaching and learning priorities

As pupils settle back, teachers will devote greater time and attention to certain curricular areas. SPHE and wellbeing will be a core element of teaching and learning for the opening weeks to meet the needs of pupils mindful of wider physical, mental, emotional and relatonship implications of social distancing, lockdown and possibly bereavement which may be significant for some children. Following on from this, Ms. Lauren undertook the Active School Flag and the Amber Flag. These are directly related to physical and mental health and wellbeing. Please visit our school activities page to browse through photographs of the mant activities undertaken since September 2021. Yoga, meditation, mindfulness activities, danceathon, random acts of kindness, launch of active walkway etc... Míle buíochas to Múinteoir Lauren for all her hard work and to all the staff for supporting this very important project. 

Learning approaches

Teachers will, as always strive to cultivate a positive environment where children feel safe and secure. Continuing to provide a broad range of activie learning experiences for all pupils is essential, including play-based learning, inquiry-based learning, use of digital technologies, and use of the environment. 

Pupil voice

Language underpins everything a child does, and as such talk and discussion, will be key elements in supporting learning across all curriculum areas. Pupils will be afforded opportunities to share their thoughts and articulate their experiences of recent months (positive and negative) for example, in SPHE lessons, through visual arts, drama, creative writing, through imaginative play in infant classes and/or through conversations.  

Taking the positives from the last 18 months, I suppose we've learned to appreciate time together as family, enjoy the simple things in our own locality, getting closer to nature and enjoying the outdoors more.

Gold Incredible Edibles School Award

We have been awarded the Gold Incredible Edibles School Award for completing Agri Aware's 2021 Incredible Edibles programme. Last years 1st class and 2nd class took part in this programme. They thoroughly enjoyed completing this project as it was something they are all really interested in. The whole family was involved from the earlier task of learning the foods orgin. Going into the supermarkets and exploring the aisles to see which produce was Irish grown, as well as going through the fridge and cupboards at home. It definitely educated the children as to what was available on our own county and country. 
We visited the local Butcher's Daughter Factory and it was so beneficial and enjoyable to all the children. Planting our vegetables and watching them grow was exciting for the children. Because of the pandemic the children really had to take responsibility for their vegetables and they did this with great enthusiasm. It was nice to see even our SNA's getting involved plus Ms. Tina.

Biodiversity Flag

We are delighted to be celebrating the arrival of our Biodiversity flag. Two years work went into this flag and pictured above are the members of the committee over the two years.

A huge thank you to the committee of both years. The slogan we chose for 2018/2019 was Life is Nature and Nature is Life. The slogan for year 2, 2019 - 2020, was Biodiversity is key for Nature, You and Me. 

Over the two years the school created a garden with wild flowers, planted a variety of vegetables and trees. We created a bug hotel, put up bird feeders all over the school and created a booklet on the results of our bird observation. 

We had a specific project done on bees, which involved a class visit by Elaine O'Dwyer, parent and on a previous occasion a visit from a bee keeper. Strangely during this very time two bee hives had to be removed from a tree truck opposite the school.

A special thank you to Paddy Cullen from the village who helped us greatly when we had to relocate our school garden due to the development of the all weather pitch.

This is our 5th Green Flag.

Our 1st was for Recycling (slogan - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle).

The 2nd was saving Energy (slogan - Switch and Save).

The 3rd was reducing our water usage (slogan - Stop the Drop).

Our 4th was for Travel (slogan - It's cool to carpool or walk to school). 

Congratulations and a big thank you to all involved. Please god our younger generation will carry all they have learned from doing this projects into their homes and lives going forward.

Our Proclamation

Irish citizens and those new to our shores: We gather by our flag, in this year of 2016,    enjoying the freedom, hard won by our forefathers.

We remember with thanks the sacrifices of those who gave their lives for our right to self- determination. We now declare the right of all the people of Ireland, to enjoy, care for and respect our beautiful island, its trees, rivers,land,air, animals and as yet unknown natural resources.

We hereby state that all of us have an obligation to guard this right for future generations.

Irish citizens must continue to be allowed equal rights and opportunities. All children of the state must always be cherished equally at home, at school, in hospital and beyond.     Generations to come must be sheltered from the modern threats of technology, drugscrime and celebrity culture.

Irishmen and Irishwomen should be afforded equal opportunity and access to all areas of life: business, political, secular, religious and educational.

We state that every person has the right to work for a living and it is the duty of our government to ensure that this happens.

May we continue to foster a love of our traditions of music, dance, games, literature and language.
