Team Hope 2019

Thank you to all who took part in the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2019 in St. John’s. Once again you have gone above and beyond!

Team Hope delivers over three million shoeboxes annually to children in some of the remotest and poorest parts of the world, to children who think they have been forgotten about. But your kindness shows them that they haven’t. Thank you to all those who helped fill the boxes and give those less fortunate than ourselves a chance to smile this Christmas!

Climate Action Week 2019

Climate Action Week runs from October 14th to 20th, 2019 in association with Green Schools Ireland.  To celebrate this, we invited Devin O’Sullivan from www.feastireland.net to give a presentation to students from 3rd to 6th Class.  The presentation was very inspiring and focussed on the causes and effects of Climate Change and how simple actions can make all the difference.  Thank you to Devin for the very informative and interesting workshop.  We look forward to putting the knowledge to good use this year.

Book Fair 2019

A Book Fair is a celebration of reading that puts the very best books directly into pupils’ hands. The books are supplied by Scholastic Ireland from over sixty publishers to celebrate a life-long love of reading. Our Book Fair in St. John’s was a great success and because of this, we received money to get free books for our school so thank you to all Pupils and Parents who contributed during the week. We are very grateful for your continued generosity.

4th Class Mobile Phone Initiative Dec 2018

4th Class Mobile Phone Initiative Dec 2018

 

Two weeks into our Mobile Phone initiative and the results are in! 

In November, Pupils from 4th Class in St. John’s began a pilot initiative to cut down on the use of mobile phones and gaming during the week in an effort to improve concentration and language. 

While we can all see the benefits of technology and embrace the modern age, we feel that we need a healthy balance in our lives as too much technology can have an impact on attentiveness, focus and mood.  

We are very grateful to both students and Parents in 4th Class for embracing this initiative in a positive manner and for providing feedback so that we can use the results to structure future initiatives.  

Click on the links below to view comments from Parents and Pupils on the Initiative.  Overall the observations are positive from both Parents and Pupils!  Well done all!
