Active HOME Week Challenge 27th April-3rd May 2020 

To complete the challenge children have to find four different ways of being active, every day, making sure that this adds up to 60 MINUTES, or more. Children are encouraged to try something NEW, have FUN with a family activity and to ENJOY the week! You can be as creative as you want and get the whole house involved. If it is sunny get outside and if it is raining there are lots of exercises you can do inside to stay active. Have a look at the ideas page below.

Below is a copy of the Active Week Challenge Chart. We want every child to make their own chart which they can fill in four times everyday. At the end of the week we want you to take a picture of the chart and email it to Múinteoir Lauren ( so she can include it in our Active School Flag application. Every child that sends their chart will receive a certificate. We can't wait to see all the wonderful charts.

Dear Parents/guardians,  21/4/2020

In these unprecedented and difficult  times I sincerely hope you and your families continue to stay safe and come through this. We are well aware of the many challenges facing family life at present: 

Care of young children. 
Care of second and third level students, and stress due to uncertainty around exam timetables and arrangements.
Care and support of elderly relatives and neighbours.
Working from home and needing quiet time to do so.
Living with frontline family members.
Experiencing covid-19 illness or isolation in your home.
Sudden unemployment of family members  General anxiety and stress around the current unprecedented situation.

In the meantime all teachers will do their best to provide support and ongoing education to your children.  Any work coming from the school is a menu to choose from rather than a list from which they must start at the beginning and work through   There are no deadlines for the work,  pupils can work through it at their own pace. The main thing is to keep well ,safe and healthy. It is difficult for children to process what is going on and they worry about you, taeir parents and grandparents. Try to structure the day so that there is a balance of school work, activity, leisure and family time.

By now, I'm sure you all have the day planned, but below is a sample daily timetable which may be useful.

9-00am-10-00am: Out of bed, play and get dressed 10-00am-11-00am: Breakfast, tidy up and household jobs.
11-00am-1-00pm: School work.
1-00pm-2-00pm: Lunch and play time. 
2-00pm-3-00pm: Outdoor exercise time.
3-00pm-4-00pm: Creative time-reading, art, dance, music, drama, baking or more school work for older children. 
4-00pm-5-00pm: Free play time or limited TV. 
5-00pm-6-00pm: Project time: a time to work on a specific project like writing a book, painting, a specific project in an area of interest etc. 
6-00pm-7-00pm: Help prepare dinner and tidy up.
7-00pm-8-00pm: Family activity time-board games, limited TV etc.

We wait for further updates from the department in terms of a return date or what that return may entail. Meanwhile, all we ask, is that each child does her/his best as I'm sure they are. Enjoy the fine weather and keep safe and healthy.

Best wishes, 


Some useful websites:  

  Tell and  this is on offer for 5 euro.

This one will be particularly attractive to those into football.  Not sure if its free but you might like to check it out.

A creative writing pack:  This  is very good and in the absence of teacher support should be a great help.

CJ Fallon: They have a tutorial page for any area which may be useful in terms of explanation.

A review of the child safeguarding and protection policy and procedures took place at our Board of Management meeting o February 28th 2019.


Role Of A Parent Association

The Parent Association is the structure through which parents/guardians in a school can work together for the best possible education for their children.

The Education Act, 1998 sets down the role of the parent association.

The Parent Association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership of home and school.

Educational research on the involvement of parents in schools shows that children achieve higher levels when parents and teachers work together.

The Parent Association can advise the principal and Board of Management on policy issues and incidents that may require a review of school policy, e.g. Bullying, Safety, Homework, Enrolment, Behaviour problems etc.

Parent Associations can suggest and/or organise extra-curricular activities.

The Parent Association is a support for parents in the school.

The Parent Association can invite speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant.

The Parent Association is not a forum for complaint against either an individual teacher or parent. The Complaints Procedure is the mechanism for this.
