The children and teachers of Junior and Senior Infants would like to say a huge 'Thank You' to Barry, Margaret and Daisy Hurley who donated a beautiful doll's house and furniture to the school which has been placed in the Aistear room. It will be enjoyed and appreciated by the children for many years to come.
To end a fabulous week all the children dressed up for an Inside out day raising money for Pieta House. The children wore their clothes inside out representing our appearance may not always match how we feel on the inside. The whole school took part in the Cha Cha Slide. It is so lovely to celebrate occasions as a school.
It is Well-Being Week in our school! We are having lots of fun doing mindfulness activities, meditations and yoga and on Friday we are having an Inside Out Day to raise money for Pieta House! We are wearing our clothes inside out to represent that someone might look ok on the outside but they might not be feeling ok on the inside! Thank you to the girls on the Amber Flag Committee for helping to organize the week!
