Pupils and staff enjoyed celebrating Wellbeing Week and with lots of fun ideas and activities. We enjoyed Mindful Monday, Together Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Thankful Thursday and Feel Good Friday.
Each day a member from the Amber Flag committee shared some positive thoughts and activities on the P.A. system. Mindfulness meditation in classrooms followed each announcement. We even had a special song…
Other activities for the week were…
Mindful Monday – Yoga for Infants to 1st Class
Together Tuesday – Buddy Art and Zumba
Wacky Wednesday – Pupils can show their uniqueness and personalities through something ‘wacky’ – maybe odd socks , crazy hair day.
Thankful Thursday – Gratitude activities to reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives
Feel Good Friday – Music in the Yard
A huge thank you to our wonderful Wellbeing (Amber Flag) Team who were involved in the planning, organisation and running of this very special week for everyone.
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!
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?
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!
