Anti-Bullying Association Update February 2018

Following on from our last update, the student representatives from the Anti-Bullying Association visited classes in the school to encourage discussions about bullying and friendship. Each class were shown a video clip about bullying and/or friendship. Subsequently the older classes were given a questionnaire which was followed by a discussion and the younger classes had a class discussion. The initiative was very successful and a big well done to our student representatives for their hard work across the week!

 

Also this month, we have launched a Newsletter for the Anti-Bullying Association. The newsletter is displayed in the school on our noticeboard and will also be posted here for parents/guardians to read. As always, we would like to thank the staff, parents, and most importantly, the students of Scoil Naomh Michael for their efforts to make our school a safe, happy and fun place for everyone to learn!

5th Class BizWorld Project

Well done to our 5th class students who recently represented the school in the BizWorld project. The children took part in a full day workshop in school, and then pitched their business idea to a panel of experts.

Some of the ideas were chosen to be displayed at the Enterprise Town event in SuperValu Glanmire. You will see the children pictured below with Bobby Kerr from Dragons Den.
