Happy Halloween all!!!
Enjoy the break!
Please read our latest school newsletter to find out what is going on at the moment in our school.
Our second class students have been lucky to be given the opportunity to participate in this year’s Peace Proms choir event at the RDS, Dublin.
The Peace proms is a cross border initiative that brings school children from both sides of the border together to perform a number of songs in unison. Although it is optional for children to attend the event, it is strongly encouraged that they do so. It is a fantastic opportunity for children, and our music focus over the coming weeks will be centered around learning the songs and movements for the concert.
Below is a link to the website containing all of the songs, lyrics and videos for children who wish to practise at home.

Be Active Week
‘Be Active Week’ began on Monday 30th May. The children thoroughly enjoyed it. Each class took part in sports such as football, table-tennis, mini-golf, basketball, uni-hoc and athletics. We also played games such as Jenga, Lego, Connect 4 and Limbo Dancing. The school would like to express their sincere gratitude to Ms. Mulholland who organised the week. We would also like to thank our parents’ association, local sports clubs – Boyne Badminton Clun (Caroline Regan), Colmcilles GAA(Jackie and helpers), the Mc Cormack Fay School of Irish Dancing, Zumba (Nathalie Coyle), Golf (Paddy Bird and his helper) and Jo Jingles (Jane).
We had great fun during ‘Active Week’. We did lots of fun activities outside. We fished in the ball pools, we blew bubbles and popped them from the bubble machine. We played ball games and used the parachute. Jo Jingles also came to visit us and we did lots of dancing.
Fruit tasting was very exciting. We really tickled our taste buds! The sun was shining all week so we decided to paint our shells outside. It was so warm outside that we needed to cool down, so what better idea than to make ice lollies!
Congratulations to the pupils in 2nd class who made their First Holy Communion. It was a wonderful morning. The ceremonies went seamlessly, a testament to the hard work and preparation put in by the children, parents and staff. We thank the parents who prepared some beautiful cakes and treats for those who dropped into the school reception following the ceremonies. The parents’ association have played a huge role in the events in Scoil Oilibhéir Naofa throughout the year and we offer them our sincerest thank you. The School choir which was co-ordinated by Ms. Brennan, Ms. Byrne and Mr. Harrington were really on song on the day. Thank you for all their hard work and dedication. It was a very special day and the parents of all the children should be very proud.
The Parents Association will host the annual Family Fun Day on Saturday 18th June. The event is particularly popular amongst the children. All members of the community are welcome. There will be lots of fun activities and sports for children including tennis, basketball, football and art activities, face painting and bouncy castles. It promises to be a very enjoyable occasion for the community.
