Well done to our U11 Credit Union Quiz Team who won their category last night. They will go on to compete at Chapter Level at the next stage of the the Credit Union Schools Quiz.
A big thank you to Sean Duggan (father of Paddy in 3rd class) who has agreed to go into the Kube on behalf of our school next Saturday January 30th. We wish Seán the best of luck in the challenges. Doors open in the Edel Quinn Hall at 7.30p.m. We hope as many as possible can attend.
We are still collecting 1c and 2c coins in the school. If you have still any spares lying around the house you might send them in. To date we have collected over €500 With this money we have purchased Dual Time Clocks for each classroom. We hope this equipment will be of benefit to the children when they capture the concept of time.
Good luck to the boys taking part in the Credit Union Quiz this Friday night in the Edel Quinn Hall. We have 3 Teams - Two Over 11 teams & one U11 team.
The teams are :
Team I. Ciaran Donovan, Jack Quirke, Liam Breen, Paul O’Sullivan.
Team 2. Aidan Carroll, Darius Hussey, Bryan Healy, Gary McAuliffe.
Team 3. Shane Carver, Ewan McConville, Shane Fitzgerald, David Allen.
We received confirmation of having achieved our Active Schools Flag last week. A big thank you to everybody involved in this project. Well done Boys!
Congratulations to Bailey in 2nd whose Credit Union Art has been entered into the next round of the competition.
Today 5th & 6th had a talk on Mental Health by Martina from Cork Mental Health Organisation. They learnt about the importance of looking after their Mental Health and talking about their feelings and worries to an adult they can trust.
Enrolment for Junior Infants for September 2016 will be taking place in the Convent Primary School Kanturk on February 4th and 5th from 10a.m. – 2p.m. each day. Spread the word if you know of any children due to start primary school this year.
You might not know but The Kube is coming to Kanturk on Sat. Jan 30th. This is a fundraising event organised by Kanturk Community Council. Our Parent’s Association have decided to enter this Kube Competition. The entry fee is €200. We are asking each child in the school to bring in €2 to cover this fee. Winner receives €2000 to donate to their charity.
We are looking for a volunteer (must be a dad or mum from our school) to enter the Kube on behalf of the school. If you are not sure what the Cube is like you could watch an episode of it on TV3.
If you are interested in entering the Cube please contact the school immediately. If we have more than one person interested we will draw the lucky name out of a hat. Reminder, if you win the competition the money goes to the school! I’m sure the Parent’s Association will look after you!
Good luck to all you dare devils out there.
