On Sunday 20th October the Parents Association organised our annual Family Bingo in the Artane Beaumont Recreation Centre. Once again they outdid themselves with extra tables and chairs being squeezed in to fit all the families. Thank you to all the families and friends who came along to show their support and take part in the fun. And a huge thank you to all the parents who put in so much effort to ensure that the day was a huge success. Many parents who are not on the Parents' Association also volunteered to help out on the day and we are very appreciative that you gave up your time for us. Well done to all the lucky winners on the day!
Sports Day was another great success. The children really enjoyed all the activities- rounders, playground games, novelty races, ball skills, obstacle course, yoga and benchball. The Senior classes also enjoyed Ultimate Frisbee. A big thank you to the parents association for the lovely treat of the ice cream van coming to visit our school.
This year the track was made a little bit longer. The whole school have been taking part in the Daily Mile and building up their stamina so were well able for the challenge. Thank you to all the parents who came to support the children and for keeping them cool and motivated with the water guns and bubbles guns. Ms. Clarke and the Parent's Association served up fruit, sandwiches and drinks to keep everyone going.
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!
Our first school AGM will be held on 5th October at 8pm. We hope to see lots of new and familiar faces there. Watch out for the children's posters that will popping up around the school!
The Artane Beaumont Recreational Centre was a hub of excitement for our annual St. John of God Family Bingo Fundraiser. It was unlucky for some but for the winners it was a little slice of heaven with some going home with dinner vouchers, tickets for the city bus tour, board games, jewellery, a bike and much much more! Thanks to our super Parent's Association for organising and hosting another successful event and to all the companies and businesses who sponsored us. We couldn't do it without you all!
Here are some photos from the day.
