In line with the Department of Education's new drive to promote school attendance, our students are awarded monthly certificates for achieving perfect attendance. It is a fantastic achievement to see so many pupils receiving certificates and our ultimate goal is to see every student in the school receive one before the end of the school year. Keep up the good work!
Little Red Kettle
Theatre company 'Little Red Kettle' joined us today in what has become an annual tradition. As always, their production was enjoyed by staff and students. The interactive production titled "Lucky People" featured some of our (very talented!) students acting alongside the crew. Costumes, wigs and props were all utilised as our students got to be the stars of the show. Many thanks to the 'Red Kettle' crew, and we look forward to their visit year!

SouthEast Veg Visit!
We had an incredibly exciting day at school when the SouthEast Veg team paid us a special visit. They not only taught us about the amazing produce they grow, but they also made sure we had an absolute blast with pumpkin painting and colouring activities! 🎨🎃
During their visit, the friendly SouthEast Veg team, including Paddy, Siobhan, and Kirsty, answered all our curious questions about their factory and the work they do. It was so cool to learn about how they cultivate different vegetables and prioritise healthy, sustainable farming practices. 🥕
The highlight of the day was definitely the pumpkin painting session. We let our creativity flow and transformed ordinary pumpkins into unique works of art. 🌟🎃 The vibrant colours and imaginative designs really made our pumpkins shine!
But that's not all! We are excited to announce an upcoming Pumpkin Carving Competition, where you can get even more creative! 🎃🔪
Send SouthEast Vegetables a photo of your carved pumpkin, and the winner will receive a €100 voucher! 🏆 Simply email a picture of your masterpiece to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name, and the SouthEast Veg team will select the lucky winner. This is a chance to showcase your carving skills and win an amazing prize!
Let's keep spreading positivity, embracing healthy habits, and having fun together! 🌈🥦

Mind Me - Mind You
We are delighted to announce that we are an ambassador school for the 'Mind Me - Mind You' programme 2023-2024. This programme is run by Cycle Against Suicide.
The Primary Schools’ Programme ‘Mind Me – Mind You’ is designed in line with the well-being curriculum to support teachers in building the foundations of good mental health education, and well-being in children. It fosters the creation of healthy relationships, personal development, and skills central to maintaining future health and well-being.
GIY - GROW at School Programme
We are delighted to announce that our school has been selected to participate in this year’s GIY GROW at School programme. GROW at School is designed to increase food literacy in primary schools. Through garden-based learning and hands-on growing experiences, we aim to help students develop a deeper understanding of where healthy, sustainable food comes from. This concept, which we call food empathy, encourages children to appreciate the importance of healthy food and understand the process it goes through before reaching their plates.
We have just received our GROW at School pack from Sanofi, and we are looking forward to getting started!
First Day at School
