World Champion coming to Scoil Chormaic CNS!

We’re very excited to be welcoming top Irish athlete Caradh O’Donovan to the school on Wednesday 5th February 2020. Caradh is a former World Kickboxing champion as well as being a National Karate Champion with hopes of qualifying for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Caradh will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with an inspiring and motivating talk as well as a question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life. Every child has received a sponsorship form to use in order to help raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by following the below link: www.sportsforschools.org As the sponsorship form and online sponsorship page explain, much of the money that is raised will be used to improve physical activity for our school, while also supporting Irish Olympic athletes and Paralympic athletes. Please ensure that sponsorship forms and money are returned in a sealed envelope to the school office, clearly labelled Sports for Schools within 1 week after the event has taken place. Please also make sure that your child comes to school on the event day wearing their PE Kits and that they have fun while taking part! Thank you in anticipation of creating a terrific and memorable event for our school community. Kind regards, The Active School Team Scoil Chormaic...

Ms. Bell’s class perform with Lámh signs

Ms. Bell’s class have been very busy learning some Lámh signs (Irish sign language) which can be used to support communication. We have learned lots of signs such as hello, goodbye, toilet, thank you, break and lunch. We have been practicing this song which involves lots of signs – red, yellow, blue, green, white, yes and no. The children are picking up the signs very quickly and can be seen using them around the school, classroom and yard! It is super to see! We sang our song at assembly and then taught it to the other junior and senior infant classes!...
