Stay Safe Month

This month the Stay Safe programme will be taught to all the children in our school. This is a primary school based approach to the prevention of child abuse. The aim of the programme is to reduce vulnerability to child abuse and bullying through the provision of a personal safety education programme for children at primary school level.

 The programme seeks to enhance children’s self-protective skills by participation in lessons on safe and unsafe situations, bullying, inappropriate touch, secrets, telling and stranger danger.

Each night your child will bring home some topic based work for you to discuss and sign. This keeps you informed of the content of the programme as well as providing opportunities for talk and discussion around keeping safe.

Last Friday one of the girls favourite days of the year once again rolled around – the annual Cake Sale and Monster Raffle! The halla was packed full of delicious goodies that the girls and their parents had brought in for the sale. Everyone went home with full tummies and smiles of their faces. ( and many many prizes were won – over 80 in total!!!)

I know it is a very important fundraising event in the PA’s calendar but it is much more than that, it is a day that celebrates the school community in a vibrant, inclusive and hugely enjoyable way.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to our sponsors

April Evening of Music,Drama and Dance!

This year St Colmcille’s GNS are very happy to announce that we will hold an evening of music, drama and dance from Second Class upwards. This will take place in April, over two evenings, and will showcase the fabulous talent of our students (exact dates/venue and further information closer to the schedule).

This will be our main drama event this year. It will require huge in-class preparation by teachers and students. Therefore, please note the changes to our regular Christmas concert schedule below.

  • Junior Infants to First Class inclusive will hold a Christmas Concert for the parents as normal.
  • Children taking part in our April Drama Evening (i.e those from Second Class upwards) will hold a low key in-school Christmas concert. Please note that this concert is for students only.

I thank you for your cooperation and look forward to welcoming you to our first ever evening drama extravaganza in April!
