Hallowe’en Fun Day

This is one of the girls’ favourite days of the school year. They can all come to school in costume and take part in lots of fun activities throughout the day. The Student Council has nominated the Irish Cancer Society for donations this year. Your support would be much appreciated.


Watch out for the first publication of the JS e-newsletter, INSIDE ALEX, next Friday 22 October. The J6 News Committee and Ms. Smith produce this newsletter and it is packed with lots of interesting news and articles.  

Daily Mile Update

This has been a great success to date with over 9,000 miles clocked up over two weeks. The girls were very appreciative of the special wrist bands from JACA this week.  Keep up the great work, everyone!

KG Lower – Getting Ready for Hallowe’en!

As we prepare for Halloween, we have been playing lots of spooky Halloween Maths games in KG Lower. We have been practising matching and ordering games. 


Witching Hour!

Here in KG Lower, Ms Kenny has 23 witches in training working hard and creating potions and spells. Thankfully, these are all good witches so they are also spreading kindness and friendship with their magical powers. Unfortunately, we got a little distracted when making our potions that we fell into the cauldrons!!! We have also been creating the scariest haunted houses with a few spooky ghosts flying around. Hocus pocus it's time to focus!!
