A big ‘Thank You’ to Gary and Brigid Doherty for facilitating this wonderful experience for the girls.😀🌳

Friendship Week

Friendship Week

February was International Friendship Month and we celebrated it throughout our school, dedicating the week of the 14th February to Friendship Week. Lots of activities took place throughout the school culminating in a collection for Special Olympics, a well deserving organisation that promotes friendship for those with intellectual disabilities.

 

Ms Waugh’s 5th/6th class  were busy making a display for friendship week using confetti listed with ways of showing kindness. They also created their own friendship crosswords and gave them to friends to complete. Many of the poets in the class created some interesting FRIEND acrostic poems.

6th Class were busy during friendship week building lasting connections through the medium of paint.

 

First Class were busy spreading friendship around too and they enjoyed logging it each day on their individual sheets. They had a great time in the hall playing friendship games , sharing information and facts about themselves that the others may not have known. They worked really hard too in the yard ensuring that everyone had a friend to play with at  break time.

We would like to thank Bishop Fintan Gavin, Mayor of County Cork Cllr. Gillian Coughlan & Olympian athlete Phil Healy for attending the official opening of our Nano Nagle Sports Complex on 29th November. We are very grateful to the Presentation Sisters for giving us permission to develop the field into this outstanding facility that will benefit the current pupils of both Presentation Primary and Scoil Phádraig Naofa and future generations of pupils. Now more that ever, we are aware of the benefits of sport and exercise for the mental and physical health of our children, they will learn skills and develop sporting interests they can continue into adulthood.
