Happy Easter!!

A big hello to all the pupils in our school. I hope you are all keeping well. We have been very lucky that the sun has been shining brightly in the sky recently. So I just wanted to wish all of you a very HAPPY EASTER and I hope that you will all enjoy the Easter break. I know that Easter will be a little bit different for us all this year but make sure that you enjoy spending this special time with your family. This is the time that we can spend creating lots of special memories with our families that we will treasure always.

With a holiday just around the corner, it's time to start organizing Easter activities for kids. Getting your thinking cap on might be the last thing after your mind after days or weeks of homeschooling

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is gradually adjusting to this new way of living. It is an anxious time for us all and even though we must keep physically apart, keeping connected with each other is of such importance.

Find here a few self cafe and meditation pieces which you might find helpful for yourself or others during this time...

Dear Parents / Guardians,

I hope you are all keeping well and looking after yourselves and those dear you. That is THE most important message to hold close these days when we are adjusting to a new ‘normal’.
I know lots of people feel that school work should be done every day by all children at home and that. Please remember Parents and Guardians are not now expected to Home School all children.

Home schooling is a choice made by people …. This situation emerged and no one had a choice. Some points to remember to help you all through: Keep a regular routine.

On Tuesday 17th December Mr. Ó Donnagáin’s5th Class staged ‘Scrooge’ in the School Hall.

See the video below for a glimpse of this great production.

Thanks to all who helped the children learn and then practice their lines, made costumes or props and borrowed costumes or props. Thanks to all the adults who took time out of their very busy schedules to attend the show!

Special thanks to Emma, Mr. Gregg and Mr. Ó Donnagáin for all their hard work.......but the real stars of the show were the pupils from Room 9A who acted, made and prepared the sets, managed the stage and worked as a team to make ‘Scrooge 2019’ such a memorable event!!

Christmas preparations are well under way in all classes and in all areas of the Faythe School.

Ms. Conroy’s photos have captured some of the incredible work done so far from poetry, creative writing, all manner of Art activities including Christmas Trees, stockings, Santa, reindeer, polar bears, penguins, Advent Wreaths, winter scenes featuring bare trees and snow-scapes and Santas stuck in chimneys. and lights glittering in the foyer.

Special thanks Maggie from the South End Family Resource Centre who worked with several classes to beautifully decorate the windows in the Sports Hall visible from the Faythe and to the gang who erected and decorated the foyer with glittering light, the Christmas tree, the school Advent Calendar and the Crib.
