Parents' Association Clothes Collection September '21

A big Thank You to our Parents' Association for their help in organising a clothes collection for our school. We all took the opportunity to do some "Spring -Cleaning " at home , while raising some much needed funds for the school. The sum of 625 euro was collected and we appreciate everyone's efforts with this fundraiser, which is so important in these challenging times.

The BIG Collection

We had a busy September 2021 in 5th class!

Music Generation:

We welcome Tríona back into the classroom! The children love this opportunity to experience inclusion,

creativity, diversity and empowerment through music.


The children are engaged daily in their learning creating STEAM challenges offering meaningful collaboration increasing critical thinking.

Spellings For Me:

This programme is essentially a tailor made spelling programme. The child's spelling will be solely based on words that they do not know how to spell, working at their own level.


We welcome back Emmet to our new school year. The children are learning agility, balance, hand/ eye co - ordination, a standing jump of a metre distance and to increase their stamina.


The children had great fun seeing their own colouring pages come to life.

David Walliams:

The highlight of September was meeting David through zoom. They got to listen to David reading an extract from Gangsta Granny, The Boy in the Dress and The World's Worst Children. He also shared advice on how to be an author and to never give up on your dream!

Shinrone Tidy Towns

The Shinrone Tidy Towns committee came to our school on Friday 4th of October to present the winners of the recent calendar art competition with their prizes

There was great excitement as we eagerly awaited the results!!!! Marguerite spoke to all the children and complemented every child in the school for participating in the art competition. The theme was “keep the bees buzzing in Shinrone “. Billy and Mrs Maher got a present of two cuddly bees…Thank you very much. The winners were announced and the children received some lovely trophies. Well done to everyone. The calendars are on sale in the village for €10 and would make a lovely Christmas present. All the children then received a delicious cup cake as a reward for their efforts. Thank you very much to Shinrone Tidy Towns. We all had a lovely afternoon

St Brigid's Crosses

Anne de Roe came in on Thurs 30th Jan to tell us the story of St. Brigid and the cross of rushes. We all made beautiful crosses from pipe cleaners and enjoyed the weaving process. Thanks to some helpers from the senior classes for their patience and kindness also. Fr. Tom and Fr. Anthony blessed the crosses for us during Catholic School’s Week.
