Credit Union Quiz
We had six teams participating in the Tara & District Credit Union Quiz last week. All teams scored really well and we were extremely proud of all of them. A special mention goes to our U11 team who qualified for the Meath Final. The final will take place in the Pillo Hotel Ashbourne on Friday March 1st. We wish the team and Mrs Vaughan the best of luck in the final. One of our U13 teams lost out on the final also by just one point but they were happy, nonetheless, with second place!
Fyffes Fit Squad
We are delighted to have the Fyffes Fit Squad visiting the school tomorrow. They provide children with an opportunity to increase their physical activity in a fun and unique way. The children in 3rd to 6th classes will be taking part in these activities.
Science in a Box
The children in 5th/6th have just three lessons left in this innovative science programme. The children are enjoying the challenge and will be disappointed when it’s over. Thanks to Eimear for funding and introducing it in our school.
Literacy Lift Off
Literacy Lift Off (Power Hour) is continuing with the pupils in second class. They are progressing really well. They bring home books nightly so please read and discuss the books read with your child daily.
The children in 4th, 5th and 6th classes will be going swimming in Navan Swimming Pool on Mondays for six weeks starting on Monday February 25th. The cost for six lessons is €40. Our Parents’ Association have very kindly paid for the buses. We thank them for their continued support of swimming in the school. Please send in the money in an envelope as soon as possible.
The pupils in second class will receive their First Confession in Rathfeigh Church on Thursday March 7th at 7.30p.m.
This week’s Briathar na Seachtaine is ‘Múch’ (to quench/turn off) e.g. Múch na soilse más é do thoil é( Turn off the lights please).
Thanks to Teresa for doing badminton training with the pupils in third, fourth and sixth classes last week. She will be doing some more sessions with the senior classes before Easter.
We have a lot of items in our Lost Property box e.g. coats, hats, gloves, water bottles etc.
If your child is missing any of the above please come into the school and check if it’s here.
We will be disposing of all items after the mid-term break.
