On Friday the weather behaved itself and the children, parents, grandparents and staff of Scoil Cholmcille had a great day. To start we had our annual “May” procession in honour of our Lady Mary (even though it was June 1st). After that we had a great time sampling some fantastic Ice-cream as part of our fun day in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland. Massive thanks to everyone who helped out in both events.
We had Moville and Donegal county star Tony mc Clenaghan as well as Maurice Harkin in to visit us today in school with a fantastic present. Thanks to Moville GAA club for donating 10 GAA balls which we are going to love using to help us improve our GAA skills. Thanks lads!!
Well done to this weeks student of the week. Deserved winners.
A reminder that we are closed next Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th of May. (Apologies for the late reminder!!) The school is being used as a polling station for the upcoming referendum and will therefore be closed on Friday 25th May. School will also close on Monday 4th June as it is a bank holiday. Term finishes at midday on Friday 22 June.
End of year testing in Literacy, Numeracy and Gaeilge will take place starting Tuesday 22nd of May to 31st of May. All children have been working hard all year in these subjects and I’m sure everyone will do very well. Please note Junior Infants do not take part in end of year Drumcondra testing and Senior Infants and 1st class do not do a Gaeilge test. It is essential that your child comes to school on time during this period so that testing can take place efficiently.
The children are really enjoying taking part in the incredible edibles programme.
