Ms O'Carroll's Retirement
On Friday 23rd June, we celebrated Ms O'Carroll in St. Patrick’s NS at our Senior Assembly. Ms O'Carroll has worked in St Patrick's NS for 42 years!!.
At her last assembly she was presented with her very own 'Reált na Seachtaine' certificate. Then Ms C Fox's class had written a poem for her.
This was then followed by some fabulous music and songs - Ms Griffin's class changed the words to 'Simply the Best', the choir sang 'Thank you for the Music' and then all of children wished her the very best by singing her out with 'Hall of Fame'
We know that she will be back to help out with the choir but we will miss her around the school.
The children and staff wish Ms O'Carroll health and happiness in the next chapter of her life.

It was a very special day in St. Patrick’s NS. We proudly raised our Amber Flag that was awarded to our school this year.
The children and staff have made a huge effort to promote positive mental health and well-being all year. They should be very proud of themselves.
Thank you to Mrs. O Carroll and the Amber Flag committee who raised our flag and Mr. Russell who got a great picture of the whole school together in the grass!
We look forward to working hard on new and exciting ideas for next year!

Today, in Saint Patrick's NS, we welcomed some visitors from Japan.
Two of the 6th classes, Ms M Fox's and Ms Duff’s classes, are learning Japanese with their teacher Therese sensei. This is part of a program called 'Say Yes to Languages', which we are very lucky to have been accepted on to.
The visitors were Norio Maruyama - Japanese Ambassador to Ireland, Kanako Ukai - Japanese Language Advisor with Japan Foundation, Ireland, Chisato Ofune - Japanese Language Advisor with Japan Foundation, London and Nakata Keiko san, Second Secretary to the Ambassador.
The visitors attended senior assembly. The children from 3rd – 6th welcomed the visitors in with the song 'Wonder'. Then, Ruby, Mary, Aoibhe, and Clodagh introduced themselves in Japanese. They sounded like they had been learning Japanese for 4 years instead of 4 weeks. The ambassador spoke to the children about life in Japan and opportunities for them to visit. The children then sang A Mhuire Mháthair and this was followed by some children from Ms D Keane's class presenting their projects on Japan. Natan, Becky, Tadhg, and Katie presented our guests with some flowers.
After assembly, our guests went to Ms Duff’s and Ms M Fox's rooms to join their Japanese lesson. Here, they got to see all the amazing work the children have been doing over the past number of weeks. They also got to practice using chopsticks.
We are so proud of the classes and the guests couldn't believe how much the children had learned in such a short space of time. Thanks to Therese sensei, the teachers, but especially the children, for all their hard work to make today such a success.
