It was like Moore street in Culleens last Friday when the sixth class held the annual Bóthar day sale . There were cakes ,buns,smoothies,ice- cream,sweets,popcorn,books,toys,teddies for sale. There was great excitement and a wonderful buzz about the place. And many toys went to good homes again. They raised over €1,000 which they will give to charities of their choice . We would like to thank them and all the teachers for all their hard work. And a special thanks to all parents who baked or contributed in any way . And of course all the pupils who bought all the merchandise. Here are some photos.
We are always trying new ways to encourage a love of reading in the school e.g. Shared Reading,Peer Reading,Guided Reading and we are about to introduce another initiative Literacy Lift Off. Of course we need lots and lots of books to implement these. We recently spent €4,000 on books and Mr. duffys class kindly helped us kick off our “sponsor a book”campaign. We would like to thank sincerely all the pupils,parents,grandparents and past pupils who sponsored a book . We raised nearly €1500 so far and we have kept a log of all those who contributed. These books will be read and enjoyed by lots of children for years to come.
Once again we marked our patron saints day by making crosses with all the children in the school . Some of the 5 th and 6th class pupils helped to pass on this great school tradition with the help of Mrs. Cooke and some of the teachers. We would like to thank all pupils and parents who braved the elements yesterday evening to get rushes for us.
A big thanks to all the teachers and young scientists who made our science week such a success. We finished the week off on a great note with a science assembly in the hall where all the classes from infants to sixth presented their science projects to the school . Here are some photos .
Lots of strange pupils turned up at school today. There were skeletons, mad scientists, super heroes , goblins, Wizards ,zombies, princesses , bridezilla s and witches to name a few. They all performed for us in the hall later. Here are a few photos . You might see someone you know in them . Have a great Halloween . ????
