Our Jungle Gym has been resurfaced and now re-opened. Dino will be repainted by sixth class next week. We are all delighted to get to play in this beautiful area for the remainder of the term. This was funded by the money raised by the Parent Association from the Fun Run.
We are also getting new playground markings on the tar area outside 6th class room during the summer. In September we intend to start building a Sensory Garden at the rear of the basketball court.
A huge Thank You to Valerie Renehan who has kept the school garden over the past number of years. The plants will now be incorporated into the new sensory garden as a storage container is arriving this week and will be placed where the old garden was.
We will have a Mass in the school @ 12pm to celebrate the school year. Fr. Willie Byrne will celebrate the mass.
