World Book Week 2023

This year we will be hosting Clever Fox Books for a book fair on World Book Day Thursday 2nd March. All classes will be timetabled to visit the book fair throughout the day. Please click on the picture below to see some of the books which will be on sale so that children can start putting aside their pocket money for the event.

In addition to our book fair we will be hosting a World Book Day dressing up competition. We would love to see the children dressed up as their favorite storybook characters. Check out the link below for some ideas.

Cycling

This week marked the end of a seven week cycling course for 4th Class. Graham and Zara’s class learned the rules of the road from their instructors Lance and Paul, with some groups gaining confidence cycling in the yard and others gaining confidence cycling on the road.

Thank you

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Charity Run in December. The fundraising page closed today and a total of €1715 was raised, which is an incredible amount of money. These funds will go directly to the Heart Centre in Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

Annual Run

Well done to all of our wonderful students who took part in our Winter Run today. Children in Junior Infants to 2nd Class ran around the big yard, while children in 3rd- 6th Class ran along Station Road.

This run also in aid of a fundraiser for The Heart Centre in Crumlin Children’s Hospital. A huge thank you to all who have donated to the cause. We have raised over €1,400 so far, which is an incredible amount. The link will remain open for the next few weeks: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/acetnswinterrun

Finally well done to children in 5th and 6th Class who completed the final mile of their marathon. They received their t shirts and medals today in school.

ACETNS Charity Fundraiser Winter Run

Next Tuesday 20th December, we will be hosting a Charity Winter Run in ACETNS. This is an annual event to promote physical fitness in our school but we also use it as a fundraiser for a charity in need. In the past we have raised much needed money for Focus Ireland, Goal, Hospice Ireland and the Laura Lynn Foundation. This year we have chosen to support The Heart Centre at Crumlin Children’s Hospital. They are a charity that raises vital funds to support sick children and their families. More information can be found at: https://www.childrenshealth.ie/

If you wish to support this charity, we have set up a fundraiser page at

GAA

We had our last GAA training session yesterday on yard. The cold weather did not prevent a large number attending training. We finished with a mini blitz. The girls will have a final challenge match next week against St. Johns. Well done to all children who took part this year, in particular those who never played the sport before. Keep it up. Conor, Diarmuid, Jayne & Grace.
