Active Week 2017

We have had a very busy Active Week here in Presentation Primary School. We had dancing and circuits everyday in yard. We had a very successful (and dry!) sports day on Tuesday.

 

On Wednesday we had our medal ceremony and we were delighted to show off our newly awarded Active Flag

 

 

Lots of classes went shopping with our Lidl vouchers and bought fruit to make smoothies.

 

We had a fantastic dance workshop with Kim and on Friday we walked a mile with a smile. We all had a chance to have a “bounce” on the bouncy castles !

 

 

 

Building Sheds!

Ms. Donnelly’s girls had great fun this week building sheds.

We used lego to build  sheds for the tractors on the farm.

We worked together and had great fun.

Green News

We were delighted to hear recently that we have been awarded our 4th green flag for Travel. RTE News2day visited our school on Tuesday May 16th to film us and to interview some members of the Green Committee.

The Senior Infants had a great time at Glenroe Farm. We met lots of animals. We fed the goats lots of grass and we got to pet the lambs too. We had a picnic outside and we had lots of fun in the huge playground.

Congratulations Georgina!

We are so proud of our 3rd class pupil Georgina who recently competed at the European I-Karate Championships in Strasbourg. At our Easter Assembly Georgina demonstrated her incredible skills for the whole school. We were delighted that her Mum and her brother were present also. Ms. Hume read a letter from President  Michael D Higgins wishing her well.  

Over last weekend Georgina traveled to Strasbourg  and was amazing ! She walked away with 2 Gold medals for her individual events (Kata and Kumite) and silver for her team Kata.

Happy Easter from the Senior Infants

The Senior Infants have been busy making Easter Baskets, painting Easter Eggs and writing about the Easter Bunny.

 

We love our Mums!

Ms. Donnelly’s class drew some beautiful portraits of their Mums!

What a great job, they drew in lots of details.

We love our Mums!

Seachtain na Gaeilge

Bhí an-spórt againn i rith Seachtain na Gaeilge. Bhí Taispeántas Rince sa halla ar an Déardaoin. Bhí na rinceoirí gléasta go h-álainn agus bhí an damhsa ar fheabhas ar fad. Bhí Trath na gCéist ar siúl ar an gCéadaoin agus bhí ceol ar an intercom gach maidin. Bhaineamar go léir taitneamh as…..Gaeilge go deo !

Córfhéile

Well done to both choirs who performed at the Córfhéile on March 7th. The Junior Choir was conducted by Ms. Morrissey and the Senior Choir by Ms. Keating. Both choirs sang beautifully on the night and they did themselves and their school proud. Congratulations to everybody involved. Check out our Twitter account for short video clips of each choir
