Active Week 2018

Active Week 2018

Last week was Active Week and what a week it was! We had fantastic weather and more importantly we had so much fun. Statements like “This is the best week ever!” were heard on numerous occasions!! Thank you to The Active Committee and all the teachers involved in making the week such a success, in particular to Ms. Dennehy, Ms. McCarthy and Ms. Ward. Have a look at just some of the activities the kids were up to.

Active Week 2018

Next week is Active Week in the school. The children can wear their tracksuits every day and it might be a good idea to give them an extra drink. Please put suncream on your child and give them a hat.

On Thursday it’s “Wet Day” so please provide your child with a swimming hat. Your child should wear their own clothes in on this day and bring their tracksuit and a towel with them as they will get soaked and will need to change afterwards.

Each day the children can be collected at the normal time from the school. The only exception to this is for fourth, fifth and sixth classes on Tuesday, where they will need to be collected or walk home from the G.A.A. pitch in Ratoath.

We hope to have a wonderful week. Below are the events happening for each class level.

The Secret Garden comes to St. Paul’s!

The children from First Class to Sixth Class had a special treat today when they got to watch a performance of The Secret Garden. The Sixth Class children had a “back stage” session with the cast afterwards who gave them lots of inside information on the performance which has left them very excited for their own performance of Matilda in June!
