Visit from the Mayor

Waterford’s mayor, Clr. Jason Murphy visited our school on Thursday 27th October. Members of the Green School committee spoke about their cookbook “Let’s Grow Together”, for which they received a School of Excellence Sustainability Award last year. They also presented the mayor with a copy of the cookbook. It was fantastic to have our hall back in use and to welcome Waterford’s First Citizen.

Children’s Book Festival 2022

On Tuesday 18th October 2022, our 2nd and 3rd Class pupils thoroughly enjoyed a visit from digital artist Wayne O’Connor today in our own school library. Wayne had the girls and boys listening, giggling and responding to his imaginative tales! Thank you to Wayne and Waterford City and County Library. Another Children’s Book Festival well spent!

Summer Stars Reading Awards

On Wednesday October 19th 2022, we had a special morning in our school library, when Ann Marie from Brownes Road Library presented our girls and boys with their Summer Stars Reading medals and certificates. Pupils from Junior Infants to 6th Class participated in this lovely reading initiative during their summer holidays. We are all very proud of these children and envious of their fabulous award. I wonder will more Presentation pupils undertake the summer challenge next July and August?

Climate Action Week 2022

A big well done to all the classes that took part in Climate Action Week. The school was a hive of activity with all classes doing their bit to learn about climate action and changes we can make as a school to save energy.   Remember – If It’s Not in Use, Turn off the Juice! We can all play our part and help reduce our energy use!

The Green School Committee did a fantastic job setting daily challenges for the school on the intercom such as nominating an energy monitor in each class, asking classes to research Sustainable goals, introducing our Green Code and informing us about climate issues. Well done, Girls!

Our School Green Code – Think Global, Start Local- there’s no Planet B!

Friendship Week

During September we celebrated a week dedicated to “Friendship”. During this week, our pupils engaged in and enjoyed all sorts of activities as we focused on what it means to be a friend and to have friends.

Throughout the school, classes at all levels were involved in fun activities like “secret friends”, “happy hampers” and recipes for friendship. Random acts of kindness were flourishing.

Friendship was the theme for art and music activities along with story books and outdoor pursuits. Our infant pupils had the opportunity to get to know their buddies in senior classes as they enjoyed many fun lessons together.

It’s Showtime!

The corridors have been buzzing with excitement over the last few weeks… Almost 60 pupils from Fifth and Sixth Class were busy rehearsing for their production of ‘Annie’.

There were two casts and performances took place on Monday 20th June.

A competition was held to design the programme for the show. The winning artists were: Julija M., Nadirah O., Elodie D., Mikayla A., Leah B., Mya L.O., Charley P., Milicia S. and Emilia O. Well done girls!

A huge thank you to Mrs McAra, Miss Duke, Miss Butler for all their hard work in putting the show together. Another huge thank you to the other members of staff for all their help with set, costume and programme design as well as front of house.

A huge congratulations to everyone involved. Lots of happy memories were made during the last few weeks.

Summer Fun

There have been a lot of fun things going on in the school recently. We had Sports Day and a bouncy castle which were great fun. The ice-cream van arrived too, yummy ice creams!!! 🍦🌞 Everyone had a great time. Pupils took part in a variety of activities from hoola hoop challenges, skipping activities, obstacles courses, tennis racket relays, javelin throws and egg and spoon race to name a few.
We want to acknowledge all the hard work done by all the 6th Classes in setting up our Sports Day but a special mention to Ms. Duke for all her organising. Thank you! 👏

Peace Proms Concert 2022

The three 3rd Classes were delighted to put on a performance of their Peace Proms songs in school recently. They have been working so hard learning the lyrics and actions since last September! Unfortunately, this years concert in WIT Arena was cancelled but they loved having the chance to show off a little of what they learned. Click here to watch our show

Camogie Champions!

Camogie Champions!… The Presentation camogie team, which is made up of 5th and 6th Class girls, had a fantastic victory in the Eastern Final today. This is the first time the Presentation has made the final in 12 years, so it’s very exciting for the school. Huge congratulations to everyone on the team and all who help train the girls too. We are so so proud of you. Pres Abú!
Report from the Eastern Semi-Final…
It was a wet and miserable day, but this didn’t stop the Pres girls from putting in an incredible performance!
They came up against a strong and physical team from Glór na Mara but the girls fought for every ball and played with fierce determination. They won on a final score of 6-4 to 1-0. It was a great team effort and all 16 girls played a part on the day, while also having great fun!
The girls will continue to train hard over the next two weeks and prepare for the final, which will take place in Walsh Park on the 24th of May. Well done girls, we are very proud of you all.
Pres Abú!
Waterford Primary Games…
Lauren Kennedy Rowe (pictured below) was picked to play for the Waterford Primary Games team. She played at half time of the Waterford v Cork match in Walsh Park in May. We are all very proud of her and we’ enjoyed cheering her on. Well done Lauren.

Halloween Fun

Halloween was in the air at school on Friday 22nd October. Lots of witches, ghosts, pumpkins, fairies, clowns and princesses were seen roaming around the corridors and garden. Halloween games took place throughout the day and the highlight was a Halloween Scavenger Hunt which was created by Mrs. McAra’s Sixth Class. A big thank you to everyone who took part in our Halloween Dress-Up Day. Happy Halloween…….
