On Friday June 3rd we will have a sponsored GAMEATHON (a day of games) here in the school to raise much needed funds for the school. This year we plan to spend the money on computer, science and maths equipment for the school.

What will happen on the day?
On the day the children will come to school as normal, however all learning activities on that day will be through structured games. Classes will rotate around the school in order to play activity based games, playground games, traditional board games, as well as subject orientated games such as maths games, Irish games, quizzes etc. We also hope to have a teachers versus pupils match. In the afternoon the children will gather in the hall for a monster raffle, where a large number of prizes will be raffled among the children.

How to be included in the Monster Raffle
As the fundraising day will take place on Friday 3rd June, all sponsorship cards must be returned by Thursday 2nd June at the latest. Children who return their cards early, on or before Tuesday 31st May with €10 sponsorship or more will be entered into the monster raffle. This raffle is held as an extra incentive for cards to be returned early, as this makes the work of the fundraising committee much easier. If any parent works for a business that would like to donate child friendly prizes we would greatly appreciate it.

I am delighted to announce that Jedward will be coming to our school. All the hard work has finally paid off and we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated phones and games to the Jack & Jill Foundation on our behalf. Now all we have to do is wait! It’s very exciting news.

Just before the Easter holidays 4th class put on an excellent show for their parents and the school. They were helped by their teachers Ms. Falvey, Mrs. Collins, Ms. Carter and Jamie the drama teacher. The girls performed very well on stage and their singing was powerful. Well done to all involved!

Just before Easter 3rd class girls from Room 5 made dioramas to show their favourite scenes from their favourite fairytales. Judging was very difficult, but in the end three winners were chosen. They were Agnieszka (Tinkerbell), Alyssa (Snow White) and Phoung My (Cinderella). Well done!

Check out the Jedward leaderboard, we are currently 2nd, we need to be in first place for Jedward to visit our school. We are so close , we still have 14 days left to collect phones. All phones need to be submitted for counting before Wednesday 18th May. Please send all old phones into the school for recycling.

There are two ways to win this competition. The opportunity to meet Jedward will be awarded to the school that collects the most phones per pupil (we currently have 364 pupils) and also to the school that collects the most phones in total. We are trying to win the second way by collecting the most phones in total as we have a large number of pupils compared to other schools to try to win the first way.

The competion for Jedward to come and visit our school will end on 20th May. We need everyone to try their very best in the next couple of weeks to collect as many mobile phones for recycling as possible. It is important to remember that the phones will also be used by the Jack and Jill Foundation and will also help us to get free I.T equipment for the school.
