TEACHING AND LEARNING We had a lot of sad staff, parents and children last Monday morning, when we heard the news that David Bowie had died. Homework for Senior Infants was Bowie themed on that day, and was so well received that it went viral on facebook, twitter, etc – check out these links for a flavour  … DAILY EDGE     STAR    MAIL   … (ta Jill)

And on Friday all of the classes were just about strong enough to have a David Bowie Disco – check out the GALLERY.  Your little HEROES.



We’re currently working to recommence afterschool activities this term as soon as possible. We’re beginning talks with facilitators about working with us this term and also structuring a revised timetable and devising the 12 weeks around school holidays and the availability of facilitators. Hope to have news very soon of what classes will be on offer. Thanks for all the wonderful parents feedback on the form you filled out, it will be put to good use.
