In January 2023 we seen the establishment of the first student council in St. Michael’s National School. The aim of the student council is to provide students with greater involvement in the decision-making procedures of the school and learn about the democratic process. We believe that students have a vital role to play in creating a positive and welcoming school environment conducive to learning and happiness. We predict that our Student Council will play a requisite role in achieving this.
Two children from each class were elected by secret ballot on Friday 13th January and will retain their positions on the council for the duration of the school year. Infant classes are represented by the two elected pupils from 6th Class. Well done to everyone who applied to be part of our first ever student council. You have worked very hard and we are very proud of you all.
We are delighted to introduce our new Student Council to you all. The children elected for the 2022/2023 school year are as follows:
1st Class – Kylah and Eoghan
2nd Class – Katelyn and Luke
3rd Class – Saoirse and Kyle
4th Class – Amy and Oisín
5th Class – Lucy and Ben
6th Class – Zara and Isobel
Our first student council meeting will take place on Wednesday 18th January at 2pm.
After weeks of rehearsals, we were delighted to perform our school musical ‘School of Rock’ for the community on Thursday 8th December.
We are incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication of every child in our school. From designing posters and tickets, to learning lines and perfecting dance moves, no task was ever too much for the children. They were determined to put on a good show, and what a show it was – we were blown away by their incredible performance! Such a wonderful display of talent and energy!
As always, there were many people behind the scenes who helped us put on such an amazing show. Thank you to Tara McAuley, our musical director, for her dedication over the past number of years. Thank you to Karen McDermott for her beautiful backdrop, and to Mark McDermott for videoing the show. Thank you to everyone in Lisdoonan Community Centre for going above and beyond to help as always. Thank you finally to the parents who donated prizes for the raffle, your unending support doesn’t go unnoticed!
What an amazing end to 2022 in St. Michael’s National School!
Mrs. Mc Guirk’s 1st and 2nd Class had great fun today, designing jumpers for Ryan Tubridy for tonight’s show. I think you will all agree, they have done a really good job. Enjoy the show tonight everyone!
1st and 2nd Class have been very busy in the field of science. We had Louise Swords from CLAYOTIC in on Monday 14th of November 2022, using clay to make various different dinosaurs with the children. We had a webinar from Linda Birkin, telling us lots of facts about insects. We also learned lots of different Science facts each day and completed various exciting experiments in class too. Have a look at our Science expertise at work below!
We had great day on 28th October 2022 celebrating Halloween in St. Michael’s National School. The children dressed up and each class had a Halloween party. We also held a whole-school Halloween disco. We took part in ‘Trick or Treat for Sick Children’ and raised almost €300 for this very worthy cause, well done everyone!
We also held our monthly assembly, where numerous children were awarded with certificates for their hard work this term.
This week we have been busy learning about Halloween Safety, Halloween Traditions, singing Halloween songs in both Irish and English and reciting Halloween Poetry. We had great fun making our own SPOOKTACULAR SPIDERS and AMAZING MASKS too.
We all had FANGTASTIC FUN on Friday when we showed off our talents at our Whole School Assembly. We got to display our Halloween Costumes, as we danced, all in support of Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
We celebrated Maths Week this week in 1st and 2nd class. We played lots of maths games, answered maths questions on story books and tested out our maths eyes by answering and posing maths questions based on photographs. Well done boys and girls for your active participation.
