A Visit from RTE!

On Friday last, February 3rd 2017, we were delighted to have Jen and Dara from the RTE series, Operation Transformation join us in our school for the 10 @ 10. There was great excitement on the day among the children and staff.

We were very lucky to have been chosen from the thousands of schools in Ireland to be involved in the filming of the show.

Both classes were busy in January learning different dances with Kate. A big thank you to Kate for all her hard work!!

The whole school danced to ‘Saturday Night’ and the senior room had learned a dance to Cheryl Cole ‘Say My Name Remix’.  By the end of the day the children had no problem behind the camera.

Stay tuned to Operation Transformation this week to see the children in action.

Every Wednesday morning at 9:20, staff and pupils run. We are building our stamina, in a bid to be able to run a mile by Christmas! We add one lap each week.

Super Troopers/ Brennan’s Healthy Heroes Lunchclub

As part of our Active School Flag we are also working with Super Troopers and Brennan’s Healthy Heroes Lunch Club.
Super Troopers is where the children are given an activity journal which includes short activities to do each night as part of their homework. They can complete the fun activities alone or with a family member. The booklets are checked each Friday.

As we all know to be a healthy person we must also watch what we eat. In Threen N.S we have a Healthy Eating Policy. We have decided also to run the Brennan’s Healthy Lunch Club. A committee member will check the lunch boxes once/twice a week and the healthiest lunch will be photographed and put on display.


Here are samples of the healthy lunches:
