St Brigid's Day

Room 14 was learning all about St. Brigid and had great fun making St. Brigid’s Day crosses!

One School,One Book

We are excited to be taking part in 'One School, One Book' once again this year following lots of wonderful engagement with and enthusiasm for last year's book 'Lost and Found'. A selection of books were shortlisted by 6th class pupils who subsequently visited each class in the school so that they could vote for the book they would most like to work on. The identities of the books were kept a secret - 6th class wrapped up the books so that pupils could vote based on their favourite blurb. We had a very clear winner and we are excited to share that this year we will be working on 'The Day the Crayons Quit!' Each class has received a copy of the book and we are looking forward to seeing all of our pupils' wonderful work! Huge thanks to Ms.Steen for organising and to the fantastic 6th class pupils who helped to promote the project!

The Stay Safe Programme

As part of the SPHE Curriculum pupils in Senior Infants, First, Third and Fifth Classes will be taught lessons from Stay Safe which is a personal safety education programme. The series of lessons will be taught each school week from the end of January until the end of March (Easter Break).

The aim of the Stay Safe programme is to teach children personal safety skills so they can look after themselves in situations which could be upsetting or dangerous. It deals initially with common situations which most children will experience at some stage or other, e.g. getting lost or being bullied. The programme also teaches children the safety skills necessary to protect themselves from physical or sexual abuse and emphasises the importance of telling a trusted adult about any problems they have.

The Stay Safe programme is part of the Social, Personal and Health Education curriculum which all primary schools are required to implement. Co-operation between parents and teachers is essential to the success of this programme. It is important that parents/guardians are aware of the content of the Stay Safe lessons and are able to discuss the lessons with their children. Your child will bring home worksheets which will inform you on the topics being covered in class and help you reinforce the messages at home.

You can familiarise yourself with the content of the Stay Safe lessons by logging onto

One of the most useful aspects of the Stay Safe website is the Parent's Guide. It is available in lots of different languages. The English language version of the Parent's Guide was recently updated and can be read by clicking below. The other versions listed are the older version of the guide, however the key Stay Safe messages remain the same. Click the language you wish to read the Parent's Guide in below.
