NEW JUNIOR INFANTS WELCOME 

Senior Infants @ Imaginosity

Last week Senior Infants went on their school tour to Imaginosity. We went on the bus all the way to Sandyford which was very exciting. They had three floors of toys and exciting gadgets for us to play with. As you can see from the photos we all had great fun ! When we finished we all had a lovely picnic in the courtyard outside Imaginosity.

 

2nd Class had a wonderful day on their school tour. We went on a tour of Butlers Chocolates Factory. We saw chocolatiers making and decorating bars and chocolates. Then we watched a short film about the history of chocolate. Finally, we got to decorate chocolate elephant statues. After our visit to the factory, we went to Malahide Castle to eat our lunch and play in the playground. We had so much fun and would thoroughly recommend the tour!

What does my child’s STEN score mean?

Yesterday, we sent out report cards to all parents. Children from First Class up completed standardised tests in Maths and English. These are given a STEN score which is explained further here:

Our First School Tour – Junior Infants and Evergreen

Last Tuesday was a very exciting day for Louise, Fiona and David’s classes.  We went on our first school tour together to Lolo Land in Navan.  For many of us, it was our first time on a bus and we got to see lots along the way.  When we arrived in Lolo Land, we discovered that there was lots to play with.  There was a small farm, a garda station, a cafe, a stage, a bank, a castle, a construction site, a hairdressers, a shop and even a hotel to name some!  We had our lunch in the hotel.  It was a very busy day and we had lots of fun.
