At the student council meetings this year we have looked at many subjects such as Covid, coping with Covid, Internet safety and cyberbullying. We made posters on what things we like to do to distract us from Covid. We included things like playing sports, going out in the fresh air and playing on our Xbox. We sent our suggestions and photos of our projects to Dr. Tony Holohan who was very impressed with what he saw. On cyberbullying, we went over the basics such as Stop Block and Tell, what platforms it is found on and we made posters on Internet safety. We hope everyone has a safe and peaceful Christmas.

Covid 19 restrictions have necessitated a lot of changes around the school, but that didn’t stop Mr O’Flynn and the boys in 5th class!
They had a Visitor by Zoom, Charles Spencer. You can find out about our virtual visitor from Charlie and Ross.

Our Green school team had its first socially distant outside meeting today with Ms Ryan and Mr O’Doherty. The Marine Environment is the next flag we would like to get. Today we discussed marine environments and what we can do to protect them. The committee will work with the teachers and classes to reduce plastic usage in lunches. We will encourage discussion on marine environments and their preservation. We will also let our classes know about a poster competition called ‘Clean Marine’.
We are taking part in an active challenge from today November 9th until December 4th as part of our Active School Initiative. Our Active Team met with Ms. Tynan to come up with ideas on what we could do for active breaks every day. Some of those include Joe Wicks 5 minute exercise breaks, Go Noodle, Bizzy Breaks and 10@10 (RTE). Best of luck everyone and get active!
We hope everyone had an enjoyable Halloween mid-term break.
The school reopens on Mon. Nov. 2nd (NB-staggered opening and closing times continue).
