Ard Rí Blog (ed.1)

Hi all,

I have fallen out of love with Twitter over the past few months. However, I really want to share with the community some of the fantastic work and fun we are having at our beautiful little school. We will share some of this magic with you here on the website blog.

Student Council

This week we celebrated World Social Justice Day with the election of our Student Council. Elections were held in the school hall by secret ballot. Everyone learned lots about the election process. One boy and one girl were elected from every class. We really value pupil voice at our school and we look forward to working with the Council on issues that matter most to our pupils.

School Library

We are working hard to introduce more diversity into our school libraries. If you have old children’s books in different languages or books with stories or themes which represent minority groups or people with disability etc. we would be delighted to give them a new home. Thank you.

Jimmy and Beau

Everyone enjoyed the visit from pet lambs Jimmy and Beau. Children got a little cuddle and a chance to bottle feed them. It is a real sign of Spring to see lambs in the fields. There’s a grand stretch in the evenings, our lovely daffodils are growing and there are buds showing on the trees. What other signs of spring do you see?

All you need is love…

We had great fun celebrating Valentines Day last week and love was in the air with beautiful art pieces, cards and acts of kindness.

Pancake Tuesday

Huge thank you to our Parent Association who hosted the pancake party. There was Nutella, sugar and lemon flying everywhere and well done to our 6th Class volunteers for helping with preparation and distribution. For our Christian families it is now the season of Lent. This Lent I will be doing my best to be kind to everyone I meet and trying to drink lots of water and eat some extra veggies.
