Tuesday, April 7. Day 26. Good Morning Everyone I hope you are all well and in good spirits this lovely morning. Just to let you know that I am leaving my Easter Holiday picture up but there will be a new message and video each day with much thanks to Mr. Keane for up loading them.Talking about Mr. Keane - have you taken his 'eggs-ercise' challenge? It's for everyone so let's see who has the better aim! As I said yesterday my broadcasts will refer to Holy Week so Parents/Guardians you might explain to the children that when I said 'people were waving palms' I meant branches from Palm trees and not their hands though I have no doubt their hands/palms were also waving! Enough rambling for this morning. Have a great day and please God I'll chat again tomorrow. All the best and lots of love, Anne PS you can view Mr keane's Easter "Egg"ercises by clicking the following link! https://stpatricksinfants.net/easter-eggercises/ or going through the Pupils Area on our homepage Previous posts from Anne

Dear Parent/Guardian, Our school is delighted to announce that we will shortly roll out the Aladdin Schools Connect to parents/guardians of children in our classes. The school uses the Aladdin Schools software service www.aladdin.ie for administrative purposes and Connect will give you secure access to messages from the school and to details of your child’s attendance, reports cards etc via secure login from your internet browser or Aladdin Connect App. Aladdin Connect is a fantastic way to enhance a school's communication with parents. It will help the school/ teachers to communicate with parents in this short time when the school will be closed. You can rest reassured that Aladdin Schools uses state-of-the-art security to safeguard information entered by the school and data is stored and processed in strict compliance with Irish and European data protection laws. What we need from you? Today or tomorrow, you will receive a text/email message containing your registration link. There will be one link per parent. This will allow you access information for all your children in the school from one account. Please do not forward this text/email or share this link. During registration you will choose a password that will be used in conjunction with your email address to securely access the Aladdin Connect. Once registered you will be sent an email with links to download the Aladdin Connect App for your mobile device. In preparation for this please let the school know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if your email address or phone number has changed recently. Our records show that we only have email addresses for 42% of you, so if you have not given us an e-mail address please send it on as soon as possible [...]

Happy World Book Day from St Patrick's Infants! So much fun today in school dressing up and celebrating books!
We are very excited to be one of 150 schools in the country that will be part of this Arts Council initiative for schools to engage with the arts and creativity. We will need the help of the school community with this in the coming months - watch this space!
So much fun in Farran Woods crunching leaves, seeing the deer, playing the playground with our friends. ALWAYS one of the best days of the year!
Some pictures from our end of year Attendance Assembly. Thanks Mr. Keane for the certs and prizes!
