Super Senior Infants have been super busy!
Children in Room 4 have been making bird feeders as new signs of spring appear.
Room 4 read the story of Hansel and Gretel. We acted out the story. They also used their maths skills to construct their own version of the gingerbread house using Lego to make a sturdy structure. In addition to this, they designed and made a new gingerbread house for Hansel, Gretel and their dad to live in using art materials.
Ms Kelly’s Senior Infants and Mr O’ Mahony’s 4th class teamed up to enjoy some buddy reading in celebration of World Book Day.
Seachtain na Gaeilge 2018
Is í Seachtain na Gaeilge an fhéile Ghaeilge agus chultúrtha is mó a bhíonn in Éirinn gach bliain. Tá sé mar aidhm ag Seachtain na Gaeilge úsáid na Gaeilge a spreagadh sa bhaile agus i gcéin i rith féile coicíse gach Márta. Is é mana na féile ná "Bain Triail Aisti - Surprise Yourself!" chun a léiriú gur féidir le gach duine, cibé aois atá sé nó sí nó cibé tír ina bhfuil cónaí uirthi nó air, a bheith lárnach in athbheochan na Gaeilge!
Táimid ag ceiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge i Scoil Thomáis le linn na laethanta seo. Tá na páistí uilig ag obair go dian ag foghlaim damhsaí, amhráin agus dánta as Gaeilge. Tá gach duine ag déanamh sár-iarracht agus táimid go léir ag úsáid Gaeilge ar fud na scoile. Tá na páistí ag ullmhú ealaín le haghaidh comórtas ealaíne agus tá gach duine ag tnúth leis an gceoilchoirm mhór.Tá súil againn go mbéidh craic agus caint againn go léir le linn Seachtain na Gaeilge.

FAO: Parents of Scoil Thomáis
Dear Parents: this is an update on school matters for the coming week from Ms McGarry, Principal.
First of all thank you to you all for your co-operation with the restricted gate and classroom entry access over these few days as we all get over the extreme snow event. Special thanks to our school caretakers Mick & Eamon for their work to clear snow etc and to those parents who helped with clearing footpaths last Sunday afternoon. We are all glad to be getting back to normal routines again!
The Dept of Education has confirmed that the Inservice Day for Primary Language Curriculum must go ahead as scheduled on this Thursday 8th March and all teachers in Scoil Thomáis must attend this training - therefore there will be no classes for pupils on Thursday 8th March. School as usual on Friday 9th March at 9am.
The Service of Light for Confirmation pupils will be on Thursday 8th March at 7.30pm in the Church. All Confirmation pupils should be in the Church by 7.20pm so that the ceremony can start on time The School Choir will sing at the ceremony.
The planned early closing at 12 noon next Tuesday 13th March for Child Protection Training has been CANCELLED to allow for catch up on tuition time - therefore there will be a full school day on Tuesday 13th March.
