World Book Day

The children celebrated world book day in style by dressing up as their favourite character from a story. We had a lovely assembly and Mrs Hogan read 'Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book?'.  Throughout the day boys and girls from each class went to the office to read out quotes from popular fairytales and stories while the other children guessed the title. As well as that, children designed their own book mark. Take a look at some of the pictures- can you see Charlie/ Red riding hood/ Peter Pan etc?

Stories ar Scoil.

The children received a lovely a surprise when story teller Paddy O'Brien came to visit our school. Paddy was a huge hit with the children because of his funny twists on very popular nursery rhymes. Try this at home: ''Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a box of pizza an ogre brown came running down and said buzz off or I’ll eat ya'..’'   

Visit from the dentist

Thanks so much to dentist Sinéad McGrath for visiting our school today. Sinéad showed us the correct way to brush our teeth. She told us how important it is to brush our teeth twice a day and for two minutes. We also talked about food and drinks that have lots of sugar in them.

Grandparents’ Day at St. Patrick’s Infants

Wow!! Wow!!Wow!! A very warm thank you to all the parents, guardians, relatives and particularly the grandparents' for coming to our school to celebrate Grandparents' Day. This day was part of our Catholic Schools' week in which we thanked God and our grandparents for helping create the wonderful world around us. We started the celebrations with a lovely assembly: Ms Hogan read a very special prayer and Ms Sjaellaender read a beautiful story called 'Heaven is having you'; The children performed 'Thank you God for everything', 'We sing a song to Brigid', to celebrate St Brigid and Spring, and closed with our school anthem that brought tears to many eyes. Grandparents and relatives were invited back to the classrooms to play games. Also, children asked the grandparents about life in the 'olden days' and show them what school is like today. The chocolate biscuits and juices were a tasty sweetener shared by everyone. It truly was a remarkable and very special day to be remembered. The staff at our school were duly humbled and extremely grateful for the praise extended by grandparents- complimenting the warm, colourful, child friendly and special atmosphere evident in all parts of the school. We would like to extend our warmest thank you the Irish Examiner for the publicity. Take a look at the amazing article. http://www.irishexaminer.com/video/lifestyle/video-these-cork-students-put-on-an-adorable-show-to-celebrate-their-grandparents-442073.html

Irish dancing

We were so delighted to start our Irish dancing lessons today with the amazing Nicky Hayes. We love going to the halla and practicing every Tuesday. We get better each and every week. Take a look at some of the pictures. We cannot wait to perform for our parent during Seachtain Na Gaeilge.

Congratulations for excellent attendance!

Today, at assembly, we celebrated and congratulated the boys and girls who had excellent attendance in term 1. Well done especially to those who had full attendance. We would like to extend our thanks to the parents for making such an effort to get their children to school each and everyday. Keep it up!

The Story of Christmas

The story of Christmas was retold in a special way by Senior Infants' for the Annual Nativity performance. The boys and girls worked really hard over December- singing songs, learning lines and performing. The children really enjoyed playing the important roles such as Angel Gabriel, the angels, the stars, Mary and Joseph, the 3 wise men and the shepherds. It was a truly great way to end term one.

Junior Infants’ Christmas Concert

Junior Infants put on a dazzling display during the Christmas Concert, singing some very popular songs including 'Santa Claus is coming to Town' and 'Rudolf the red nose Reindeer'.

‘Dorothy DoLittle’s Magical Adventure’

Everyone at St. Patrick's Infants' was treated to a very magical puppet show, this week. The story was about Dorothy DoLittle- a lovely but tired and grumpy young girl. However, with the help of some Magic Dust Dorothy goes on a magical adventure where she meets characters who teach her all about being fit and healthy. She learns the secret of the Food and Exercise Pyramids.   It was a truly exciting and engaging story. The children really enjoyed it.

Festive fun for Halloween.

We had a super fun day in school today to celebrate Halloween. We started the day with a spooky assembly- children were dressed up in their halloween costumes and Room 5 recited some halloween rhymes and songs. A special certificate , signed by the Mayor, was presented to James and Lexi for not missing a single day in Junior Infants. After assembly our amazing Parents' Association had plenty of games organised for the boys and girls to play in the Foyer. Well done to all the parents and children for making such an effort with the costumes and makeup.  We wish everyone a happy Halloween and a safe midterm break.
