On Friday the 6th March we held our Come and See Day. We welcomed parents and grandparents to the Oak Centre to see the children perform songs and celebrate our school achievements. Our wonderful MCs and actors read from Ms. Blennerhassett's favourite book, TheBoy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse. We shared our schoolwide reading comprehension programme 'Building Bridges' and pupils shared some of their own favourite books encountered through 'Building Bridges'. After the assembly, parents and grandparents visited the classrooms where the children had an opportunity to showcase all of their wonderful school work. A big thank you to all the families for sharing in a very special day!
A huge thank you to all the pupils for supporting the charity G.O.A.L. We had our annual Jersey Day on Friday 11th October and raised 140 euro. Well done everyone! We'll look forward to sharing our experience of the GOAL workshops coming to our school in November!
Congratulations to the Red Panda's from our house groups who came first in our table with 164 points. They enjoyed an ice-lolly treat and a trip to the local park!
We had a great day at the Community Center for our School Fun Day and we were blessed with the gorgeous weather. Thank you to Deborah to making us feel so welcome and looking after us all day
Ombudsman for Children's Office
Children from 3rd – 6th Class attended a workshop at the Ombudsman for Children’s Office in Dublin City. The children learned all about their rights and met the Ombudsman for Children, Dr Niall Muldoon. The children quizzed the Ombudsman heavily and even discovered he was an Ed Sheeran fan!

A huge congratulations to the children who won the Write-A-Poem 2018 competition, run by Navan Education Centre.
