Scoil an Spioraid Naoimh have had a very busy month with lots of exciting extra-curricular activities for all the pupils.
This month the focus has been on getting fit with swimming, Spike ball, gymnastics and GAA. We have applied for another Active Flag and are very excited about this. We hope to enlist the support of all the parents and have our very own Fittest Family competition! The school are competing at GAA blitzes and have entered a Spike ball tournament also. There is something for everyone in our school!
6th classes are busy preparing for the four Confirmation Masses on February 5th, 12th, March 5th and 12th in Sacred Heart Church at the 12 noon Masses. The children are preparing the Liturgy, artwork and music for all the Masses. The School Choir meet every Friday and are building up a repertoire of beautiful hymns and songs.
There is a beautiful display at our Sacred Space. The theme is Confirmation and Gratitude. We are encouraging our children to be grateful for the gift of friendship and family this month.
The Literacy Team are working on new reading initiatives with a facilitator from the Professional Development Team (PDST ). We are hoping to further expand on purchasing different genres of reading materials for the classes and library. In fact the 6th classes are hoping to set up a book club in their classrooms to further enhance the high standards of literacy in SSN. We have 2800 commission to invest in Literacy as a result of our very successful Book Fair initiative in December.
We have a fantastic Parents Association who are presently busy organising a Quiz Fundraiser on the 9th of February in Reddans at 8pm. We would like to invite you all to come along and join in the fun!
