The girls in First Class are getting ready for Hallowe’en!  Check out our Pumpkin Parade!

We used lots of 2D shapes, which we learned about in Maths, to make our pumpkins. 

European Day of Languages

We celebrated European Day of Languages in style! This is an important day in Europe as it celebrates all languages (not just European ones!). So we heard languages from every continent in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) and enjoyed listening to all of them.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING RETURN TO SCHOOL

Dear Parents, Guardians and Staff,

Many of you may be aware that the Church Carpark is under renovation by the Parish. There is extensive work taking place. The Parish informs us that the work will not be completed in time for the return to school on Thursday 30th August at 8.50am and that it may not be finished until later in September.

As a result of the works, there will be no access to either of the Church Carparks for the foreseeable future for either cars or pedestrians. This means that all access to the schools will have to be on foot through the EXIT GATE onto Castleknock Rd., (opposite The Bell pub).There will be no access to the school campus, for cars, between the hours of 8.00am and 4.30pm from Thursday, 30thAugust until further notice. Staff cars ONLY will be given access to the campus via the usual EXIT gate. Pedestrians will enter and leave the campus via the pedestrian side of the EXIT gate as above.

It would be advisable for parents to walk their children through their new route to school before they return to school on Thursday and perhaps to allow some extra time for the journey. Revising the Rules of the Road and reminding children to be vigilant are very important too.

While it is most unfortunate that the renovation works are not yet finished, it is important to remember that ultimately, access to the school will be easier and safer for the children as there will be a safe walkway incorporated into the Church Carpark for them.

The Parish will keep us updated on the progress of the renovation project and we will pass on information to you as soon as we have it. In the meantime, please let us all take care of our children and observe these new arrangements for as long as they need to be in place.

Junior Entrepreneur Programme

Rang a Cúig are taking part in the Junior Entrepreneur Project 2018! We have learning about what it takes to be an entrepreneur and working with Orla in conjunction with Room 13. We all had lots of brilliant and unique ideas and had fun working with one another to create presentations! We then presented them to the Dragons’ Den. Our ‘dragons’ were Orla, Ms. Kirwan-Keane and Ms.Tiernan. Rang a sé came to watch our presentations and gave us some very thoughtful advice and insights on their experiences doing the project.

After much careful consideration the dragons chose an idea for a café. But this is no ordinary café! Stay tuned for some exciting developments!

Suffragettes

As it is the centenary of the Women’s Suffrage Movement Rang a Cúig decided to get proactive and celebrate the vote ourselves! Inspired by ideas on www.herstory.ie  we decided to create our own stamps dedicated to famous Irish suffragettes. We learned about many heroines such as Anna Haslam, Hanna Sheehy Skeffington, Constance Markievicz and many others. We wanted to design a stamp of an Irish suffragette as we noticed that very few Irish stamps contain the images of women. To choose our suffragette we held a class debate and designed ballot papers. After the debates, we voted in order of preference of the suffragettes and placed the ballot papers in our very own  class-made ballot box. We counted the ballots afterwards and announced the winner. We were all delighted when the winner was Anna Haslam, as she lived an extraordinary life. She was a pioneer of the movement and even worked in soup kitchens during the famine, which we also learned about. Deeds not words!
