Wellness Wednesday

Between now and the end of June we will be celebrating Wellness Wednesday in Conna NS. We know the academics are important but above all we value our mental health and the wellbeing of pupils and staff. You might catch us taking a stroll around the yard to chat to our friends or enjoying a treat in the staff room!

Crow-vid-19

There was caws for concern this morning when a crow flew into Senior Infants. We had to get a crow-bar and some vel-crow to remove him…he must have thought he was in CAWlege!! Thankfully he returned to his pals safe and sound before the children arrived in.

Happy Easter

We had a very egg-citing day in school today. The Easter Bunny came to visit with Easter eggs for everyone. He bounced in to every classroom. He told us he has been in quarantine for the past two weeks. Thanks to the Parents Association who sponsored him!!

Odd Socks

THANKS EVERYONE. WE RAISED A WHOPPING €294 FOR DOWN SYNDROME IRELAND.

Thanks to everyone for supporting our odd socks/lots of socks fund raiser for Down Syndrome Ireland. We had lots of fun showing off our socks. We will put up the total amount raised next week as it is still rolling in!!

St Patrick’s Day

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all our wonderful families. We had a wonderful Teddy Bear Parade in the sunshine today. Some teddies were big, some were small, some were bald but all were welcome! Enjoy the day off school tomorrow. See you all on Thursday.
