Jim Beglin Pays a Visit

Our 6th classes were delighted to be paid a visit by Jim Beglin.  Jim spoke about his soccer career; from his schoolboy days in Waterford to his professional career at the highest level of the game.  He also spoke about his career as a soccer commentator.  The pupils had an excellent question and answer session and Jim motivated them to pursue their interests with determination and hard work, telling them, “You all have the ability to surprise yourself”.

Shared Reading in Senior Infants

Over the past few weeks the children in senior infants have been participating in our shared reading programme. They were encouraged to read lots of books, and as a result have made great  improvements  in their reading.

Sincere thanks to all of the children’s families for their support of this very worthwhile programme. 

The children received certificates  (and a little treat!) to celebrate their achievements.
