Tech Week Competition

Children in 3rd to 6th class are working with Sprite Lab in Code.org this week, learning how to code their own dance party.

We are inviting all children to code their own dance party and share the link to their project with their teacher by Wednesday 18th May. Their classmates will vote for the best dance party and prizes will be awarded to winners at each class level.

All children in the school are welcome to make an entry. For the children in the younger classes, they can work with siblings or parents to create their own dance party.

Check out the dance party coding project by following the link below.

Parents’ Webinar- Online Safety 12th May 2022

As part of Tech Week in ACETNS (9/5/22 – 13/5/22), the children will also be participating in online safety workshops facilitated by Barnardos. The SPHE programme in school and the school’s Digital Strategy both recognise the great importance of developing the children’s awareness and skills to become responsible and safe users of online technology, both in school and at home. We adults also need to raise our own awareness and skills in the area of Online Safety in order to protect and support our children. We encourage all parents to avail of this great opportunity and register for the webinar next week. 

An email has been sent out to parents with a link to the webinar. If you have not received this please contact the school.

Fairwell

Fairwell to our partner teachers from Portugal and Sweden who visited our school this week as part of the Erasmus project. Our visitors experienced daily life in our school by visiting classes, participated in a GAA lesson, took part in an Irish céilí and visited Croke Park and the Guinness Storehouse during their time here. We also participated in two workshops about Educate Together and a fascinating workshop about culture in schools. We wish to thank our parents who volunteered to take part in the workshop. Please visit the Erasmus page where we will update with more information and photographs about their tour.

Erasmus +

Next week our school will welcome teachers from Sweden and Portugal as part of the Erasmus + project in which ACETNS are participating. The main theme of the project is the exchange of good practice in relation to The Multicultural Class. The visiting teachers shall be in our school on Monday and Wednesday. On Tuesday they shall be brought on a cultural tour of Dublin. Visit the Erasmus + page for more information.

As part of our Erasmus + project our Student Council had a Skype meeting with our Swedish partners during a very challenging COVID 19 period. It was a great opportunity for our student council to talk to students from another country and share experiences. You can view the meeting on our ACETNS YouTube page or click on the link below.
