If you have signed your daughter up for a music lesson (piano, violin, ukulele etc), the music teachers are in the process of making contact with their students. We have a number of piano and violin teachers on the staff. There will be 27 music lessons over the school year (36 weeks) so they will not have a lesson every week. The music teachers will sort a suitable time for your daughter’s lesson with her class teacher.
Please make sure that every school item is named. There are two aged 9/10 new red PE sweatshirts and a 9/10 new school coat in the office all week – no names on any of them!

J5R and J5W enjoyed a super day at CP Adventures in Wicklow on Tuesday. The sun was shining as we arrived at beautiful Russborough House early in the morning. We were split into 4 groups and each group worked their way through wall climbing, archery, the zipline, bushcraft, team building activities and a high ropes course. It was a super day and we enjoyed everything, but the highlights were toasting marshmallows over a fire we had built ourselves and conquering fears to launch onto a scream-inducing zipline!
Since Roald Dahl Day is coming up next Monday, our J6W students celebrated his wonderful books in our assembly this morning. Each group created a short slideshow on a book by Roald Dahl. We finished our assembly with a performance of “Umbrella” by Rihanna.
As yellow was Roald Dahl’s favourite colour, we are asking everyone to add something yellow to their school uniform on Monday.
