NEWSLETTER 24.03.2017

Welcome to this weeks newsletter.


Recently the whole school enjoyed a skipping workshop with Marc Mc Cabe founder of Skipnrope. Today we had our first Playworks using the ropes, see the gallery for some photos. Skipping was really popular with the pupils and a great way to enjoy exercise. See the gallery for photos. We have organised Mark to come back next year and hope to impress him with all our practice.


Thanks to all the parents and guardians who came into the school over the last month for student led conferencing. The feedback has been really positive thank you for all the hard work.

Friends for Life

Friends for life is back and the ten week program will be completed with each class before the Spring break. Fiona will be giving a short presentation on this in the hall on Friday 31st March followed by a coffee morning.

Seachtain Na Gaeilge

The celebrations were great. We had poster activities, puppet shows, operation transformation and a big hooley in the hall – have a look at the pictures. Each class did a céilí dance which they had practiced previously, then there was a session – thanks to all the staff, and the children. Thanks to Cian as well. CHECK OUT THE GALLERY.

Have you got an idea for a event to help raise money for Canal Way Educate Together School? We are looking for an event to run during April.
