School News & Activities
The school is a busy place this term. Activities such as violin lessons have resumed in the CCMA each week. The after-school clubs are also up and running. There is great variety:- Irish dancing, Book Club, Active Club, Music club, Homework club, Coding club, Lego club, Whizz Kids & knitting club, so many interests are catered for.
Our 6th classes will be receiving their Confirmation on Thursday 17th Feb in the church. We hope they have a lovely day.
We are continuing to work on our Green School status. The focus is on travel this time, and one of the main things to have happened was the School Zone outside the school. It means that the footpaths outside the school are clear of traffic, and makes them safer for walking, cycling or scooting! The planters with trees & flowers are lovely too. We have also received news that Dublin City Council are going to install a sheltered bicycle rack in the yard during the year.
It’s great to see that the parents are walking together on Wednesday mornings at 9am. Everyone is welcome to join the group.
It was lovely to read about ‘The Crumlin Community Clean Up’ in The Irish Times recently, and to spot some of our pupils & parents in the photo. Find our more about this group here!
We hope everyone is keeping safe and well at home.
All our teachers have been in touch with their classes by email and have also started using the education platform ‘Seesaw’. Luckily, many classes were trying out Seesaw during Term 1, so everyone was getting familiar with it. Please let your teacher know if you need any extra help with your homework and tasks. We are here to help you in any way we can.
More Fun Run and Science Week Activities
We had a huge variety of Science Experiments and Halloween Costumes throughout the school, which brought a great amount of excitement and fun.
Our pupils love science projects.
Junior Achievement Volunteers
Junior Achievement Business volunteers will visit the school on Friday 17th May for a STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering and Maths) workshop and goal orientated lessons. This involves working with our two 5th classes using P.E. and Maths as a blended lesson to enable children to see that Maths is all around us in everyday life.
Junior Achievement volunteers will continue to visit 5th class pupils for a period of five more weeks as part of this initiative.
Our 3rd and 5th classes visited Engineer’s Ireland Headquarters in Ballsbridge during Science Week to see a show “Mr Megaphone’s Irish Jaunt,” performed by University Professors showcasing Ireland’s rich history of scientific discovery and engineering
They travelled to and from the show on the 18 bus so thanks to Ms. Coady, Ms. Kennelly, Linda and Mandy for surviving the journey with over 65 children!! Classes from 4th to 6th were invited to Rosary College to visit their Science lab and experience some hands on Science experiments
