OUR SCHOOL

We would like to create and environment where children will acquire and develop the necessary knowledge and skill to become independent, confident learners – where they will develop their self-esteem to enable them to express and achieve their full potential. We will endeavour to broaden each child’s experience to help them become spiritual, well-balanced and tolerant individuals with a respect for themselves and others.

  • 17th Jun 2021 7:59 pm

On Thursday we met Sandra. Sandra spent the day teaching us about biodiversity. We learned all about the plants and animals we can find in our school garden. We learned about all the amazing little birds we see everyday and barely even notice. We covered a range of topics from flora and fauna to pollution in our environment. After that, We had the chance to head outside where we looked for plants and animals that we’d like to sketch. Have a look for yourself! https://twitter.com/dmsnsbalgaddy/status/1405615918449934340?s=21

On Wednesday we spent our day working with Joan. We discussed how important flowers are. How they may look so small and fragile but really they are strong and resilient. The dandelion story inspired us to make the best of every situation. We then used recycled materials to make our own dandelions. Lennon explains it all in this video. Enjoy! https://twitter.com/dmsnsbalgaddy/status/1405246013816905735?s=21

Funder and Lightning - insurance information

Funder and Lightning - insurance information

  • 16th Jun 2021 11:09 am

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s), As previously announced, we are delighted to be hosting our very own funfair this Friday June 18th in Divine Mercy SNS. We are aware that a large number of children have not paid their book money for the current academic year (2020-2021) and as a result are not covered by the school insurance as the first €6 of the first €50 payment is the insurance premium. At minimum this €6 needs to be paid for your child to participate in the Funder and Lightning funfair. If you have not paid please do so as a matter of urgency. This can be made by sending the money into the school or paying via Aladdin Connect. If you have any problem making this payment please contact the school. To make the day run as smoothly as possible, we would like our students to be aware of the following for the day: • Have the permission slip signed and returned to class teacher • Be weather aware – sun cream/rain gear needed on the day • Inform teacher in advance of any dietary or medical needs • Packed lunch and lots of water • Non uniform day The school day will run as normal. Fifth and Sixth classes will start at 08:50 and Third and Fourth classes at 09:00. We would advise for them to arrive promptly as the day will begin straight away. The school day will also finish as normal with Fifth and Sixth classes finishing at 14:30 and Third and Fourth classes at 14:40. We would like to once again reassure you that we will be following all COVID-19 guidelines on the day. The final countdown is on for ‘Funder and Lightning’ and we can’t wait! Regards, Regina Halpin, Principal
