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...

December in Senior Infants

December has been a really exciting month in Scoil Chormaic’s Senior Infants. This month, we explored the Aistear theme ‘The Arctic’. The children loved our igloo in the role-play area and the Arctic icebergs in our Small World area brought the theme to life as the children played with wooden Arctic animals and Inuit figurines. This month we also celebrated St. Nicholas Day. We discussed what St. Nicholas Day is and children who celebrate this occasion shared their experiences with us. The children then coloured in shoes and left them on their tables at break time. When returning after break, St. Nicholas had come and left chocolate on everyone’s shoes! There was great excitement in Senior Infants! Scoil Chormaic held a fundraiser for homelessness this month. It was a lovely event where people from the local Nursing home came to join us listening to live music in our PE hall. Sweets and treats were also available to buy on the day to support this cause. The children painted some fantastic Winter scenes in Art this month. We mixed various shades of blue to create a frosty background before painting on snowmen. Finally, on the 18/12/19, we celebrated Winter Assembly. The children were fantastic and sang beautifully. Thank you to all parents who came to support us as the children put in so much effort and preparation for the big day. Ms. Farrell’s class sang ABBA- Mamma Mia and Ms. Moore’s class, Jackson 5- ABC. Well done to both classes on such brilliant...
