As part of the Erasmus Plus Project, we had to design a logo that represents our school, our values and our country. We had many AMAZING entries, and it was extremely difficult to decide on a winner. The Yellow Flag Committee (who promote inclusion and diversity in our school) decided that the following logo was the deserved winner.
Congratulations to Arin from 6th class, who designed this Logo. When talking about her logo she said “I began with our school’s logo because I don’t think I would be able to make a better one. I included our countries flag, with hands showing that our country and our school includes lots of people with different skin colour. The chain above that represents that we are linked together and that we stand together against racism. Then I included different religious symbols, to show that we talk about different religions in our school. Lastly, I included lots of colourful swirls as our school is just so fun”.
We had many other logo entries which we felt had to be highly commended. Well done to every single child who participated. We have an extremely creative and talented bunch 🙂
Our 5th and 6th classes were training to run a marathon over the last 7 weeks. They ran their last mile today in Santry. Congratulations to all the fantastic runners 🙂

The children have been doing their best this year to attend school everyday. Children were given plaques and certificates for missing no days and medals if they missed very few. Here are some of the worthy winners of this years attendance assembly :
Students from 3rd and 4th Class who took part in the Future Thinkers After-School Club won an award last week (15th May) at the Irish Young Philosopher Awards in UCD!
Their project was called “Is perfection freedom or control?” They explored the concepts of perfection, freedom and control through art, dance and enquiry. They won the runner up prize in the 3rd and 4th Class Category.
Some students had the opportunity to meet President Michael D. Higgins and his wife, Sabina.
There’s lots going on!! We’ve had a busy few weeks and this week its well being week!
The kids are talking about their emotions and how it’s ok to not be ok all the time.
On Monday we dropped everything and danced and Tuesday we dropped everything and talked. A problem shared is a problem halved, as the saying goes.
Children also wore different emotions on their T-shirts on Tuesday to raise money for children in Crumlin hospital.
Pictures will be posted soon, under the ‘whats going on’ tab!
