Summer Stars Reading

Just a little reminder  that Tramore Library’s “Summer Stars Reading Adventure” is now underway. 

Summer Stars is an exciting reading-based programme which is available free of charge to all children across the country.

The Summer Stars Reading Adventure runs in public libraries all over Ireland. Children are invited to register for the adventure and enjoy reading many books as part of the adventure during this time. All participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress. There will be rewards and incentives along the way and a grand finale event at the end for all participants.

We strongly encourage our pupils to participate in this fantastic scheme. Happy reading!

Slán, Rang a Sé

Tonight we held our annual 6th class graduation ceremony. The pupils entertained us with songs, dances &  poems which they performed magnificently.

Monsignor O’Mahony presented each pupil with their graduation certificate. We also awarded our Willie Moran Attendance trophy, along with the much coveted “Spirit of Holy Cross School” award. 

Mr. Kindlon congratulated all of the pupils and wished them well as they progress on to secondary school.

Our colleagues, Mr. Beglin & Mrs. Kennedy were presented with gifts by the Parents’ Council to mark their retirement.

We would like to thank all who helped to  make this night a night to remember for all of  our 6th class pupils.

Summer Assembly

We held our final assembly for the current school year this morning. It was a joyful occasion as we celebrated the wonderful achievements of our pupils. We also said farewell to two of our long serving staff members, Mr. Beglin & Mrs. Kennedy. Mr. Kindlon thanked both teachers for their hard work and dedication to the pupils of Holy Cross School. We wish both teachers every happiness in their retirement.

Balance Bikes

We’d like to thank the Waterford Sports Partnership for lending us a set of balance bikes. The children in junior and senior infants had great fun using them.

As the name suggests, balance bikes are a great way for budding cyclists to develop confidence and balance while feeling in control of their speed.

Junior School Sports

The sun may not have shone, but that didn’t deter all of the children who took part in our annual school sports this afternoon. Great fun was had by all, from Junior Infants to 2nd class.

Fly, Butterflies, Fly!

Today Mr. Kelly invited all of the senior infants to come outside and watch as the rest of the butterflies were released. It was a wonderful sight to see!
