Thank you to all the families who donated money for the Irish Red Cross Appeal for Ukraine. We raised 314 euro.
Well, the children blew us away today. They made huge efforts to portray some wonderful storybook characters. There is nothing better than to see children who love to read and who love to be read to. Thanks to all of you who put a lot of work into helping the children celebrate world book day in Threen N.S. and who instil a love of books by reading to your children and encouraging them to read.
Well done to our winners for the best costume: Junior Room – Matthew and Senior Room – Averie .
Well done to all our students who have been fantastic at following all the school rules and Covid 19 guidelines , including the children in 3rd-6th class wearing masks in school. It is not easy. We have been taking added mask free breaks outdoors and the children have been adhering to all guidelines.
All the students have been engaging with online activities and zoom sessions in recent weeks. The zoom sing-a-long and wellbeing check-in were valuable, fun and worthwhile.
Shelby the corn snake came to visit our school on Friday the 19th of November 2021.
He is owned by past pupil Kacie Joyce who was with us for the week on Transition Year Experience.
He is a male and is 5 years old.
He is fed every Sunday with a mouse or a small rat.
He sheds his scale every three months.
When he is about to shed, his eyes turn a cloudy grey.
Once he has shed, his eyes revert back to the colour black and his new scale is shiny.
The children and staff enjoyed Shelby (& Kacie) coming to see us and the children got to ask lots of questions during his visit.
