Recently in Scoil Naomh Pádraig

Having fun at Yoga.
We have resumed yoga with Ann since the mid term break. It costs 6 euro for six sessions and is well worth it. Children learn breathing, relaxation, meditation, stretches and poses. It is definitely a highlight of our week.
Presentation and music session in the library on the folk songs 
of Scottish poet and composer Robert Burns.
Last month we all took part in a seminar by Monica Monahan from the Anti Bullying Coalition. We are adopting the new recommended forward thinking approaches of Whole School Awareness, a No Blame No Anger policy and are aiming to be as pro-active as possible as a school. Bullying will not be tolerated. We want every child to be safe and happy in our school. Click here to read about the Anti Bullying Coalition.

We are preparing for Oliver in school this week. It is our Christmas play/ musical and we are excited to announce that we will be performing it as a whole school on Monday the 15th of December. We intend to perform it in the evening and not during school time as in previous years. We have also confirmed the Hall (Naoínra) as our venue.

Team Hope Shoebox Appeal

This is the video which accompanies the Team Hope Appeal for 2014. We are proud to support this cause and are doing so for the fifth year running. It is a fantastic way to show less fortunate children in Eastern Europe and Africa that we care. 
Please remember the Four Ws if you are filling a box. 1. Wash- something to wash with (hygiene related things like a toothbrush or comb) 2. Wear (t-shirt, socks, warm hat etc) 3. Write (like a copy, colours, pencils etc) 4. WOW (something to make your recipient go 'Wow') It costs four euro to post the box and you need to fill in the form that was sent home. Thanks so much for your support!
