Assembly  2010

Today we had our first school assembly whereby all the classes from Junior Infants up to Sixth class gathered in the hall.  Mrs.  Minnock welcomed the Junior Infants to the school and explained the school rules to all, she also spoke about respect to all people and things, both inside and out of school.

The theme of the Assembly today was RESPECT and Mrs. Dowd’s  6th class children were fantastic in their presentation of this theme through Prayers, Discussion, Poems  and a short Drama (about a girl who said mean and cruel things about people and spread lies and rumours, thus showing that while “sticks and stones will break your bones, names will also hurt you”, ).

The 6th class children who performed during Assembly.

After the 6th class were finished Mrs Minnock presented a certificate to one child from each class, who was nominated by their teacher as the student of the month, for being the child who excelled in their display of “respect” since our return to school. Well done boys and keep it up. Maith Sibh!!

The “Students of the Month” for most Respectful children

throughout the month of September.
