A huge congratulations to the girls in Sixth Class who today received their Speech and Drama exam awards. Four girls in the class had all their certificates and received great results in their drama exams throughout their 8 years in St. John of God G.N.S. It is because of this that they received a very special Medal from Ms. Noone. One of the girls received a trophy as she received distinction in all of her exams! A huge well done to each and every one of the girls and to all the girls in the younger classes, make sure you mind all your certificates very carefully so when you are in Sixth Class you may receive a medal too!
Summer Holidays are nearly here and hopefully the sun will come back out for the next two months.

Bring a small healthy snack for small break. There will be no school lunches on Friday.
Have a great Summer and we look forward to seeing you all on Thursday, 31st August.
Today the girlS in Senior Infants brought home their sunflowers. It has been hard work looking after them, making sure they get enough sunlight and water, and trying to rescue them from whoever is nibbling on their leaves! The first photo is the first batch of sunflower seeds we planted and the second photo are the seeds we planted recently. They have more growing to do!
Hopefully they will grow even more when they are planted in the ground or in bigger pots at home! Please email us in some photos of your sunflowers over the summer holidays and we can add them to the website. Well done to all our budding gardeners!
