Yay for pancakes. We hope you will all be attempting to make some pancakes on Tuesday. Top them with lemon and sugar, Nutella and ice cream or cream and fruit to mention a few. The following day is Ash Wednesday which marks the first of 40 days of lent.

Below are two pancake recipes. The first is for traditional pancakes, the second is for American style flyffy pancakes. Have fun flipping them!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We are very sorry you can’t come and visit us this year. Here is a little look around the school at some of the beautiful art the kids have been busy with.

A Star Is Born

Our very own Katelyn McDonagh will be in the RTE Junior ad on RTE Junior at 5:24 tonight, Monday 14th. We can’t wait to see her. Well done Katelyn. We are very proud of you.

Pieta House

We are so proud of our school for raising E480 for Pieta House when we dressed up at Halloween. Well done everyone.

The Late Late Toy Show

Not long until the Toy Show on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. The goodie bags have arrived in school!! We will be giving them out to the kids tomorrow.

A massive thank you to the Parents Association for organising this delicious treat and fundraiser. Thanks to our wonderful parents for their support. Enjoy the treats everyone!

Competition winner casper didek

Way back in September fourth, fifth and sixth class entered Panini’s Official Premier League Adrenalyn XL 2020/2021 Trading Cards – Classroom Challenge Competition. The pupils had to design a winners trophy for the event of their choice. Ms Casey and Ms Nagle sent the entries off digitally with everyone hoping they had done enough to win the top prize- E1000 for the school, E50 for the pupil and a football shirt of their choice.

We got the wonderful news this morning that Casper Didek, in 6th class, had won the top prize in the Republic of Ireland. We are all extremely proud of this amazing achievement. His wonderful art trophy shows how talented Casper is. We suspect this is not the last prize Casper will win for his art work. He has a bright future ahead of him. There were big celebrations in school today. What a great start to November!!!

WELL DONE CASPER!!!!

Happy Halloween

Thanks to everyone for the huge effort that went into all the costumes and face paint today. We had lots of fun and games in school and also raised lots of money for a great cause, Pieta House. In total we raised a whopping E435 so far. Have a fantastic break. We look forward to seeing everyone back rested and refreshed in November.
