Slán go Fóill Eamon!
Today is a sad day in Scoil Thomáis as we wish our dear caretaker Eamon Dunning a very happy and healthy retirement. Eamon has been an integral part of Scoil Thomáis life over the last 10 years – greeting teachers and pupils early in the morning, maintaining the school grounds and helping out wherever and whenever he was needed. Nothing was too much for Eamon – no matter the job, Eamon was always on hand with a smile on his face. We will really miss him here in the school. His unwavering loyalty to the teachers, kindness to the pupils and service to the school were outstanding! Eamon treated every single pupil like one of his own grandchildren – he had lots of ‘buddies’ here in Scoil Thomáis. The pupils absolutely loved Eamon and we will always remember his warmth, kind-heartedness and generosity of spirit to the pupils in the school especially.
We’ll say slán go fóill to Eamon – goodbye for now – but there is always a place for him here in the school! Enjoy every minute of your retirement Eamon but don’t be stranger!
with love and gratitude from the staff of Scoil Thomáis

A Visit to Clontarf Nursing Home
On Tuesday the 10th of December, a group of 4th, 5th and 6th Class pupils visited the staff and residents of Clontarf Nursing Home. Over the past few weeks, the pupils have been busy preparing a reader's theatre production of A Christmas Carol. There was an accompanying puppet show too. Well done to Younis, Rimas, Colin, Elias, William, Sumer, Mia, Laraib, Darragh, Muzhdah, Mannuala, Aoibhinn, Jim, Brian and Daneia.
