Today is St. Bridget's day, which is traditionally marks the beginning of spring in Ireland. Hip, hip hooray, it's Spring! Let's hope the weather gets a bit warmer!
We are doing the Stay Safe programme in school this term. The children are talking a lot about friendship and what it means to be a good friend. Our assemblys are following the themes of the Stay Safe programme too so we can discuss the important messages as a whole school community. Today's assembly was on the theme of friendship.
Rev. Alison asked us the question 'How good a friend are you?' We talked about what makes a good friend and how we can be a good friend to each other. Alison told us the story of 'Ruth and Naomi' from the Bible, which tells a great story of friendship and strength. We reflected on our own friendships in school.
This week in Assembly 3rd and 4th class performed a poem for us all about the counties of Ireland. We were all very impressed with their memories! Super job!
All the staff in St. Peter's N.S feel it is important for us to celebrate children's achievements and positively affirm good behaviour. This week we started 'pupil of the week' awards. These awards can be given by any member of staff for nice manners, good behaviour, great effort or anything we feel we would like to positively affirm and promote in our school. See below the children who were awarded the first pupil of the week awards. Well done to you all!
What a treat we had this week! Junior Infants and Senior Infants treated us to a wonderful performance of 'Cuigear Fear' this week. They used rhythm sticks and their wonderful voices to impress us all. They were absolutely fantastic!
This week we also awarded the children who attended school every day between Midterm and Christmas. All the children with full attendance received their excellent attendance certificates.
Have a look at all the children with super attendance last term. Hopefully we can keep this up and continue to improve this term!
