Harvest time in the school garden! ‘Aistear’ time in the Infant Classes – ‘Under the Sea’
Thank you to all who participated in our recent ‘Walk to School’ event. This walk was extra special as we got to walk with our new green flag and chant our new green code. Also check out the photos of Alessia, Daniel and Jack receiving our new flag at the ceremony in Kilkenny. You also might have noticed all the posters that were created on our Action Day which promote a sustainable way of travelling to school. These link all the classes in the school to show our team effort in walking/ cycling/ scooting/ car pooling/ coming on the bus/ parking and striding to school. Well done everyone.
PLAYDATE for new Junior Infants, 11am Friday 25th August, Gorey Town Park. All are welcome to this informal event. See the Gorey Educate Together PTA Facebook page for more info. Please spread the word….
Senior Infants at Seal Rescue Ireland, Courtown.
Date: Friday, 26th May
Time: 8.30 a.m
Meeting Point: Woodbury Road
Parents/ guardians are encouraged to drop off their children at this point and the pupils will walk to school from there. (Parking is not recommended in this area). There will be stickers and balloons to add some fun along the way.
Parent volunteers will be required again to ensure safety and guide the way to the school. If you are interested in volunteering for this (time will be from 8.15 – 8.50) please contact Helen or Lynn. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com or call into our classrooms.
There will be lots of fun and healthy benefits from participating in this theme so we would really encourage you as a parent/ guardian to get involved and promote this with your children too. We also have our new ‘Green Code’ to chant as we walk along. Here it is for you to start practising:
Be Green , be clean,
Make our environment a dream,
Scoot, cycle or take the bus,
All together now – Bualadh Bos!
Looking forward to some fresh morning air, a healthy walk and lots of singing.
Our Action day will also take place on Friday, 26th May. This will involve all classes making and/ or designing a poster of a green way they have travelled to school. This will be done with their class teacher after our walk to school. These posters will be displayed along our corridors, linking all our classrooms together.
