Faythe School Parents' Book Club

Posted by on in Newsletters

'When All is Said 'by Irish author Anne Griffin, was the book read and reviewed by the parents' book club this month.

 This is the story of Maurice Hannigan, who, over the course of a Saturday night in June, orders five different drinks at the Rainford House Hotel. With each he toasts a person vital to him: his doomed older brother, his troubled sister-in-law, his daughter of fifteen minutes, his son far off in America, and his late, lamented wife. And through these people, the ones who left him behind, he tells the story of his own life, with all its regrets and feuds, loves and triumphs.

Overall the book club members enjoyed the book and felt the story resonated with real life and in particular was a wonderful insight into the life of people years ago. The book scored an average of 7 out of 10 with one member scoring the book 10 out of 10. If you are looking to read a new book, this comes with good recommendation from the Faythe School Parents' Book Club.

School Book Fair

Posted by on in Newsletters

A sincere Thank You to all the children, teachers, parents and grandparents who attended the Book Fair this week. It was a tremendous success.

60% of the total book sales are credited back to the school in books. This year the school can order books up to value of €1,223.10 thanks to the very generous and much appreciated support of the book fair. These books will greatly support and facilitate literacy development both in school and at home.

The smooth running of the book fair was possible with the considerable help of Mag and Audrey, who acted as librarians and cashiers and to Margaret in the office for ensuring all the money balanced. In an era of I-pods and I-pads, it was wonderful to see the excitement of children while they browsed through the numerous books in the book fair.

In the words of Dr. Seuss, ' You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book'.

Congratulations to the all the parents who were presented with their 'Advanced Cook It' programme.

The programme ran for five weeks and was delivered by Davina Dowling. Many thanks to Davina for her expertise and knowledge in the area of healthy eating and nutrition. Each week the parents made tasty and nutritious meals including soup, bread, chicken curry, a vegetarian dish and 'healthy' chocolate brownies. Each parent received a certificate of achievement and a cook book. Well done to everyone and to Maggie who managed to escape the photo! The popularity of this programme is testament to the fact that parents have already signed up for next year

Second class in Room 10 went on their school tour to Adventure Alley and Kidzone in Gorey on June 23rd. We bounced on trampolines for an hour. That was great fun and we even played dodge ball on the trampolines.

We then went to Kidzone. We played hide and seek, soccer, catch, chasing, ran through obstacles and whizzed down the big slides with our friends. It was exciting, enjoyable and energetic. We even got a goodie bag to eat.

We all loved our school tour this year and would happily go back again!

A special thanks to Ms Duggan and Peter for coming along on our school tour.
