Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019

All the pupils had lots of fun celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge this year. Among the events organised were: céilís,  concerts, news on the intercom in Irish, a phrase of the day, seanfhocail art competition and the teaching of art/PE through Irish. The photos below are just a snapshot of the craic agus ceol that we had during the week!                                                                                           Some of our pupils proved to be excellent concert presenters and our talented teachers played some traditional Irish music for the classes too!                           ...

Fresh Air Friday!

Fresh Air Friday takes place in Balbriggan this Friday 15th February and here at Scoil Chormaic CNS we are doing our bit for the community! We are encouraging as many of our children and parents as possible to walk or cycle to school on Friday. With Operation Transformation based in Balbriggan this year, this is a brilliant way to feel part of the buzz by promoting exercise and healthy living. It is also a great way of helping to reduce those harmful car emissions for the day! For those children that travel to school on the main school bus, it will be dropping them off at our old school (in Castlemill) at 8.40 where some teachers and parents will meet them and walk with them up to our school. Other parents and children are welcome to join us in the walk up to the school! The children will go home on the bus as normal at the end of the school day. Looking forward to seeing you all out walking or cycling on Friday! Thank you, The Active School Committee and the Green Schools Committee See PDF...

After School Clubs Term 2

Dear Parents,   There are still a significant number of places available to sign you child up to an After School Club. If you wish to do so, please send the payment into school with your child on or before next Monday 28th January, in an envelope labelled with the name of the club you would like your child to attend. We are hopeful that we will be in a position to go ahead with all clubs that were advertised for Term 2 but this is based on numbers. If you wish to sign your child up in the coming weeks, some clubs may still have places and be able to facilitate this also. If you have any questions about  clubs please feel free to make contact with me or the teacher(s) running the specific club. Many thanks, Ms...

They will make their own way to the school hall (which will be supervised by a member of staff) to wait for collection by the provider of the after-school activity. The school’s Board of Management (BOM) wishes to remind parents that the Management of the school does not bear any responsibility for this process, and the responsibility lies with parents to ensure that their child is either brought to the hall or has parental consent to make their own way.
