Dear Parents and Guardians,
I have sent several correspondence to the DES in recent weeks in order to express concern and seek further information with regard to the structural works surrounding the school.
Our queries and concerns included:
1. Our lack of play space and closure of the infant courtyard.
2. Damaged grounds.
3. Schedule of remedial works, if any.
4. Schedule of further structural testing.
5. Cost of additional electricity over mid-terms etc
The DES have not addressed our concerns directly as of yet.
They have however compiled a set of Q&A to address concerns raised by schools effected.
This is attached below.
Róisín’s 3rd class have been very busy this November! This month we have been practising narrative writing and are in the process of publishing our very own book!
We started Léim sa Litríocht this month which is really helping improve our reading as Gaeilge.
This month we learned a lot about the life of the artist Vincent van Gogh. We created still life drawings of natural and manufactured objects which we really enjoyed. We also painted Vincent van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Crows.
We had lots of fun during Science Week this month. Some of us brought in our own experiments from home which were really interesting. We made lava lamps using plastic bottles, food colouring, sunflower oil and an alka-seltzer tablet!
We became the famous inventor Alexander Graham Bell this month and investigated if sound can travel through string. IT DOES!
