Balance Bikes

Last October the infant teachers participated in a training workshop on the use of balance bikes. Balance bikes are a great way of teaching balance and steering to young children.

We were delighted to receive a loan of a set of balance bikes from Waterford Sports Partnership. The children in junior and senior infants will have access to the bikes for a fortnight. As you can see from the pictures, they’re really enjoying using the bikes.

Christmas Assembly

We held a whole school Christmas Assembly before we broke up for our Christmas holidays. During assembly the children from 2nd class sang some lovely Christmas songs for us. Prizes were also awarded to the winners of our annual “Design a Christmas Tree Decoration” competition, and medals were given to our U11 Gaelic team who were runners-up in the recent Eastern Finals.

Pieta House

We were delighted to hand over a cheque to the value of EURO 1600 to Olive Ruane from Pieta House yesterday. The money was raised at our annual Christmas concert which was held in our school hall last Friday.

We would like to thank all who donated so generously to this very worthy cause.
