Congratulations to all our boys and girls who took part in our recent Reading Tree Programme. This was a great success and it was wonderful to see all our pupils reading for pleasure at home and in school. Thank you to our parents for all their encouragement throughout the programme and we hope that our boys and girls will continue to read and enjoy books and stories everyday. Thank you to Ms Walsh for coordinating this programme.
Congratulations to our Christmas raffle winners Esme McCormack, Evan Hackett, Mason Lawlor, Rosie Lacy, Dylan Noonan, Cáit Clancy, Clara Daly, Mark Carroll, Mason Moynihan, Hannah Lacy, Eoin O'Brien and Ellie May Tobin. Thank you all for supporting the raffle in support of the Parents' Association. We would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas!
We were very fortunate that our application for the Artists in Primary Schools Scheme was successful. This scheme is supported by Tipperary County Council who provide funding to a professional artist of any discipline to work in a school for 50 hours on a project designed collaboratively between the school and the artist. The scheme provides opportunities for children to access and to engage with an artist and the language of creativity at an early age; and for schools and teachers to work collaboratively across curriculum areas. We were delighted to work with artist Katy Goodhue. The children worked with various fabrics and fibres under themes such as 'birds' and 'homes' and created some fabulous pieces, a sample of which you can see here.
