Multilingual Storytelling Project

One of our amazing families have been working on a project with Fingal Libraries called Multilingual Storytelling. Also, they have asked other families to join in the fun and read their stories too which has been really successful. They have already created some videos of storytelling in English, Spanish and Polish. There are some wonderful stories and it is lovely to hear them in different languages. So you will see lots of familiar faces from our school. If you and your family would like to share a story in your language please let your child’s class teacher know and we can help to arrange it! Here are the links to some of the...

Fresh Air Friday!

It was Fresh Air Friday in Balbriggan again last Friday 5th March. Once more, we had brilliant participation from our school with so many children and parents walking or cycling to school on the morning. We also decided to incorporate some litter picking in to our walk. The children put on their rubber gloves and grabbed a plastic bag and worked together to gather up as much rubbish as they could on their way to school! Well done to all of the boys and girls involved and a special word of thanks to the Parents Association and all of our parent and teacher helpers who ensured that the children made it to school safely! We will hopefully be having another Fresh Air Friday...

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...

Hope for Homeless donation with Mr. Dowling.

Mr. Dowling’s second class have been very kind and thoughtful this festive season. The pupils decided to fill a shoe box with food, toiletries, toys and clothes for the homeless across inner city Dublin. Each child decided whether they would create their shoe box for a boy or a girl aged between either 2-4, 4-8 or 8-12. They spend nearly 2 weeks gathering the supplies with their families. As you can see from the pictures below, the pupils are all chuffed with their hard work and they will make so many homeless children smile during the winter break. We also raised €470 for the charity during our Winter Coffee Morning. Many thanks for those who came, gave donations and devoted to their time to such a worthy...
