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...

A fireman visits Junior & Senior Infants

Ahead of Halloween next week we were very lucky to have a fireman visit our Junior and Senior Infant assembly today! David works for Dublin Fire Brigade and taught us all about fire safety. He told us how important it is to stay with a grown up on Halloween night and how we should stay away from fires and fireworks as they can be dangerous. If using sparklers we should hold them very carefully and put them down once they have gone out. He gave us a great idea of sticking a sparkler into a carrot to make it easier to hold the sparkler and a lot safer! He also reminded us how fun Halloween can be and that there will be a safe and organised firework display at Balbriggan beach on Halloween night! We hope every one has a fun and safe midterm break whatever you get up...
