This is usually the time of year when we are all busy preparing and donating shoeboxes for children affected by poverty in Africa or Eastern Europe. It is an opportunity to share a little joy and excitement with children who live in circumstances where these can sometimes be in short supply. This year the Christmas Shoebox Appeal has gone online. To make a virtual box of your own with your child, you can visit www.teamhope.ie at any time, and choose the items you would like to add. The closing date is December 23rd, but the Christmas Shoebox Appeal Week is being ran from 9th – 15th November.
Thank you for your continued support and please tag the school twitter account if you have any pictures of the children getting involved in any activities using the hashtags #TeamUpForTeamHope and #ChristmasShoeboxAppeal.

Here is a diary with lots of lovely reflective activities for children to complete during their time at home.
We hope that you and your families are well during these challenging times.
This unprecedented public health crisis means that all aspects of everyday life now face significant disruption, including work and school.
We have linked some suggested activities and resources (Exceptional Closure Activities Tab Above or click on the buttons below) that you may wish to avail of with your children over the coming weeks.
You will know what is most appropriate for your children and families during this difficult period. The activities and resources suggested do not need to be used and teachers will not be formally monitoring or assessing them on our return to school. They are intended merely as potentially helpful suggestions.
The suggestions listed should be treated as a menu, you can choose as many, as few, or none if you wish.
We respectfully suggest that you encourage your children to continue reading and to keep up work on Maths tables.
