Online safety

Following our successful online safety workshops for children and parents last Thursday, the Anti-Bullying Committee have shared their Cyberbullying tips for children below. Please share these with your children.

A big thank you again to our Parent Association for funding the workshops and to our Anti-Bullying Committee for their ongoing work in our school. You will find the resources from the parent presentation at http://www.childrenofthedigitalage.org.

Parent Information Evening – Understanding human behaviour in the online world

On Thursday 14th March at 7.30pm, we will hold a parent information evening in the school. Jason O’Mahony of Children of the Digital Age will present to parents on the topic of ‘understanding human behaviour in the online world’.

This will follow workshops with all classes during the school day.

The workshops and presentation have been organised by the Anti-Bullying Committee and funded by the Parents Association. We strongly encourage you to attend and we look forward to seeing you on the night.

Chess Teams

Well done to our teams from 4th & 6th class who took part in the first ever Ficheall Bunscoile Chorcaí competition in the Upper Glanmire Sports Hall this week. Our school hosted our regional competition with over 160 children playing chess in the hall on Tuesday. We had a great day and we look forward to many more fun days ahead in the competition.

Grandons Cup

Well done to our boys who had a great night at the recent Grandons Community Cup in Glanmire. The boys were a credit to the school and performed very well, just missing out on a place in the final. A big thanks to Mr. Scanlon for his coaching and to Ms. Healy and Ms. O’Halloran for their support on the night.

Action Day for Water

Today we held our Action Day for Water on our journey towards our fourth Green Flag. The children wore blue and activities and presentations took place in all classes. We had visitors from the County Council, Irish Water Safety, and Ms. Healy’s Rang 4 even held a Water Fashion Show for us. The day was a great success and it wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of our Green Schools Committee.

You can see more pictures in the Green School section of our website.
