Exciting Week in the Infant Classroom

We have had a very exciting week in the infant classroom!

On Wednesday 16th we were very lucky to have Donaghmoyne coaches Oisín and Michael in to teach the children tag rugby. The boys and girls had great fun and learned lots of new skills. Thank you Oisín and Michael!

 

On Thursday 17th we spent the morning at Donaghmoyne park. We are so lucky to have such an amazing facility right beside our school!

 

After our morning at the park we held our Sport’s Day. As we didn’t get the chance to hold a Sport’s Day last year, this was a first for both Junior and Senior Infants. The children had a wonderful day!

 

We spent plenty of time outside enjoying the sunshine!

Magician

We were very lucky on Wednesday 16th June to have a magician come to our school. It was a lovely treat for the boys and girls as we get ready to start our Summer holidays!

Ice Cream at School

We got a lovely surprise today, Friday 18th June, when an ice cream van arrived to our school!

A huge thank you to our Parent’s Association for funding this very special treat for the boys and girls on such a hot Summer’s Day!

Autism Awareness Day 2021

There was a sea of blue in St. Michael’s N.S. on Friday 16th April as we celebrated our first annual Autism Awareness Day on Friday 16th April. The children in each class took part in various lessons throughout the day to raise awareness about autism. They learned what autism is, how to communicate with someone with autism, and how we could make school life easier for someone with autism. We wore blue on the day in support of autism awareness.

We also completed a whole-school collaborative art project which you can view below. The puzzle pattern reflects the complexity of the autism spectrum. It also shows that although we all have different personalities and abilities, we all fit together to create one amazing school community.

The children engaged really well and learned a lot! Well done boys and girls!

 

A visit from the Easter Bunny

We had a very special visitor to our school on the 26th March.. The Easter Bunny! The Easter Bunny brought Easter eggs for all of the children; it was such an exciting end to the school term.
A huge thank you to our Parent’s Association who managed to contact the Easter Bunny to arrange the visit.
Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter break!

Summer Reading Challenge 2020

Congratulations to all students who took part in, and successfully completed, our Summer Reading Challenge 2020. This was the first year of our Summer Reading initiative and it has been wonderful to see the children to eager to take part! Our successful participants were awarded with medals for all of their hard work. Well done boys and girls!

Graduation 2020… With a Difference!

After over three months apart, the students, parents, families and staff of St. Michael’s National School came together today to show the most amazing display of solidarity and community spirit in saying farewell to their 6th Class students.
Tiernan, Lauren, Jessica and Eimar received one of the most remarkable and memorable send offs St. Michael’s N.S. has ever seen. They were showered with gifts and treats as they stood and waved farewell to all of their peers who came and took part in the parade. What a wonderful way to finish their eight years in primary school.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone, especially the Parents Association and our wonderful staff for making this day possible.
Thank you to all our families who came out in support.

Enjoy a safe and happy Summer holiday everyone. We look forward to seeing you all in September!

Christmas Fun at School!

We had a very special visitor at school today. The children were very excited to see Santa. They performed some Christmas songs and poems that they have been learning in class. Santa had a gift for every child which  can be enjoyed over the holidays.

Our Christmas jumper competition was a success. Well done to all those who made an extra effort, Winners received a beautiful Christmas book – see pictures below.
