World Book Day (www.worldbookday.com) is celebrated on Thursday 7th March. The aim of World Book Day is to encourage children to read books for pleasure. On Thursday we will have an assembly in the school to celebrate World Book Day. We would like children to bring a book with an Irish author, if possible, to the assembly. During the assembly we will be asking children to speak about their books. All children will receive a book token on Thursday.
The National Adult Literacy Agency has an interesting project called “Help my Kid Learn”. The purpose of the website (www.helpmykidlearn.ie) is to provide parents with activities that they can do with their children to improve their reading, writing and mathematical skills. Help my Kid Learn was developed by the National Adult Literacy Agency with support from the Department of Education and Skills and is worth checking out.
The ‘Stay Safe’ programme will be implemented in all classes from Senior Infants to Sixth class starting after Easter. The ‘Stay Safe’ programme provides an integrated, developmentally staged and comprehensive approach to teaching children personal safety skills. All parents are asked to complete the consent form indicating whether or not you wish your child to participate in the Stay Safe Programme. Please return the completed form to the class teacher as soon a possible.
First Confession for Second Class pupils takes place on Thursday March 21st in Rathfeigh Church at 7.30p.m.
I would like to thank Agnes Fox and Geraldine Clarke for supervising the sixth class children making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. The day was a great success and was enjoyed by all.
