Prize Giving is always a fabulous assembly in our school. The wonderful achievements of the girls over the year are acknowledged with medals and certs. We had prizes for football team, soccer team and athletics squad, the choir who performed at Peace Proms, the Ukulele & Recorder group and our young chefs who completed the cookery course. The 6th Class girls were also presented with their end of year attendance prizes. Well done to all the girls and teachers involved.
Today we tasted a range of fruit, vegetables, cheese and even some olives! Watermelon, lemons and limes proved to be the most popular of the day. A huge thank you to Ms. Clarke, Denise and all the parents who came in to school this morning to prepare, chop and serve the food. The children had a great time! Take a look at some of our photos.
Today we celebrated World Book Day in style. Everyone dressed up as their favourite character and had a chance to visit the Book and Stationary Fair in the hall. Well done to all the girls for their creative and amazing costumes. Most impressively one girl dressed up as a character from her own book! A huge thank you to the Parents' Association for all their hard work in organising the fair. Here are some photos from the day!
For World Book Day each class revamped their classroom library. Here are some of the photos so far.

A big congratultions to the 6th Class girls who made their Confirmation last Thursday 8th of March. A big thank you to Mrs. Breen for all her hard work in preparing the girls. We also would like to congratulate and thank Ms. O'Dwyer and the choir for all their hard work and beautiful singing. They made the Confirmation extra special.
On Friday, we got to see all the girls in their beautiful outfits when they put on a little fashion show for us. You all looked beautiful girls.
Due to the red alert that has been issued by Met Éireann the school will be closed Thursday 1st March and Friday 2nd March. Stay safe and warm indoors.
World champion Caradh O'Donovan came in to visit us here at St. John of God NS. She coached the girls in a variety of exercises that she says are the key to keeping our bodies strong and healthy. She also spoke to us about how we should never give up on our dreams! We are certainly going to take her advice as Caradh has represented Ireland in 3 sports and is now training really hard to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Have a look at some of our photos from this special training session.
Check out this tweet from Caradh after she came to visit! We are so happy to see she enjoyed being at our school!
We had Grandparents' Day on Thursday 1st February. The 5th Class organised a special prayer service up in the hall and afterwards they came to visit all the children in their classrooms. It was such a special day and we really loved having you all in to visit. Thank you for sharing your stories and playing games with us.
