Friendship Week 2018

Friendship week was a very successful week. Mr Callaghan and Ms Kiernan worked really hard to co-ordinate the many wonderful activities throughout the week. Shared PE lessons were very popular. Many thanks to the Parents' Association for supplying croissants and juice. Tea was served to all the 5th and 6th class pupils. Breakfast morning is another lovely occasion as pupils have a conversation and eat at the same time. No screen interruptions!

It was heart warming to see and read about the pupils' acts of kindness. See below the Friendship Tree.

Each teacher focused on an anti-bullying lesson during SPHE. It is important to remind the pupils of how to deal with a bully, these lessons always open up the conversation. Classes sang friendships songs, read recipes for friendship and did wonderful art work. See below the winning entry for the art competition. All of the entries were superb.
