We have 11 families in 1st Class attending Doodle Families. Doodle Families runs for 8 weeks and looks at ways parents can help their child. The programme includes a trip to the library and a party at the last session.
Junior and Senior Infant parents are coming to school every Wednesday to participate in Lego activities with their child. The course develops children's oral language and maths skills through play.
A bus was organised to bring parents on a shopping trip to Newry on the 6th of December. Everyone had a great day!
A group of parents also visited Glasnevin cemetery in November. An historian brought the group on a tour of the place and told some interesting stories about Irish historical figures who are buried on the grounds.
Christmas Arts and Crafts took place for three weeks in December. Parents enjoyed making wreaths and brought home all their wonderful festive creations!
Other parents attended a four week Science and Maths course in the school. The children really enjoyed working with their parents and learnt about symmetry, pattern making and shadows through play.
