Wishing all our pupils and their families a safe and fun summer

Hazel's Fourth Class are apart but still managed to create a photo together.
They were a brilliant 4th Class and will be just as brilliant in 5th Class, but first, they deserve a great summer, after such a hardworking year. 😊

Hazel and her class went to Ohio to visit NASA last week. Everyone had a great time but more importantly, they all arrived back home safely 😊🚀⭐️ ...

Here are 2 videos from Rozz's 5th Class created during lockdown. Who would have thought that we had such brilliant poets in our school? Many more of my students created excellent poems but did not want them shared here so here are Hillary and Sean, who gave permission, and their own poems they composed with a beautiful reading.
I am so proud of the work all of my class are putting in at home with their families. I cannot wait to see them all very soon.
Enjoy the poetry readings and let's show our support to our talented students in PETNS!

Well done to Gráinne in Paudie's 6th who wrote a beautiful piece about her time in PETNS and looking forward to the future.

The End is near. The end of our primary school days, that is. Students all over the country are preparing to say “Ciao, adios, au revoir, slán and goodbye”, to national school, whilst preparing to take the next step in their education.

I’m talking about secondary school. I’ll try not to dwell on it, so as not to take the main focus away from the topic of 6th Class graduation. I will say this, it is going to be quite difficult to adapt to such an unfamiliar, almost alien environment.

Some students may have a hard time adjusting to having to wear the same clothes every single day to school, especially those who love to express themselves through their clothing. Some may struggle to make new friends because they are used to being around the same people from primary school. Some might be overwhelmed with the copious amounts of homework. Others might settle in just fine! For those worried that they will not adjust, remember this: YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE GOING THROUGH THIS CHANGE. YOU HAVE PEOPLE AROUND YOU THAT CAN HELP YOU TO COPE WITH ANY OVERWHELMING THOUGHTS AND EMOTIONS!

On the subject of 6th Class graduation, yes, it’s not going to be the most conventional of graduations, but rest assured that there will be a ceremony or meet-up of some description when this whole pandemic is over. At said ceremony/meet-up, you can talk about your favourite memories, laugh or cringe at any embarrassing moments that are shared, or just simply catch up with friends.

It’s crazy that in the space of 8 years, you’ve met some of your closest friends, learned new things that will come in handy when you are grown up, grown and developed as a person and created some of your favourite memories!

To conclude, primary school is the place that you may have hated with a burning passion, but it’s the place where you’ve grown up, met some amazing people, learned important lessons, laughed at jokes (Sorry about the Postman Pat jokes, Paudie.), cried for whatever reason and have become the person you are today. You may have to move on to second-level education, but there’s nothing wrong with keeping those precious memories from primary school close to your heart.

Allow me to finish this piece with some wishes of luck;

I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK IN THE NEXT CHAPTER OF YOUR LIFE, IT’S GOING TO BE AWESOME!

Dear parents/guardians,
Last week we asked you to fill in a form to consent to our AUP for Internet Usage and Google Classroom in our school. While most of our parents have had the chance to fill this out, some of you may not have remembered! Please, can you take a few minutes to fill this out before the end of next week(Friday 26th June) as if it is not filled in, your child may not be able to use devices, internet and Google Classroom for learning upon return to school.
Thanks so much for helping us out!
...
