Chaith na bpáistí go léir éadaí glasa ar scoil le haghaidh Seachtaine na Gaeilge. Bhreath siad ar fad iontach ina n-glas, bán agus oráiste. Bhí ceolchoirm ceoil traidisiúnta Gaeilge againn sa halla. Tháinig beirt mban isteach agus d'imir siad amhráin álainn Éireannacha ar a n-ionstraimí. Bhí se spraoi iontach agud bhíomar go léir ag bualadh bos and ag canadh chomh maith.
We celebrated World Book Day on Friday, March 9th. All pupils were invited to dress up as their favourite book character. The standard was fantastic and great effort went into all the outfits. They showed great imagination and reflected our fantastic love of books in SS Peter & Paul. A winning costume was chosen from each class & then an overall school winner was chosen by Mrs Frayne.
The overall school winner was Hazel Mulvaney who dressed up as Gangsta Granny from the David Walliams books.
Well done to all the winners. The school enjoyed ten minutes of reading for enjoyment at 11am and took part in various book related activities throughout the day. It was certainly a day to remember!

Bainimid an-taitneamh as Seachtain na Gaeilge i mbliana!
We are celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge this week and promoting our national language with a Seanfhocail art competition, tráth na gceist, amhráin and dánta. Each day two pupils from different classes will deliver a daily ‘Aimsir’ report as Gaeilge on the intercom for the whole school. Our celebrations will finish on Thursday 15th with our Lá Glas (green day). All pupils are encouraged to wear green, white and orange and will enjoy a class concert in the hall. We would encourage parents and children to try and use a little Gaeilge at home as much as possible.
Go raibh maith agaibh.

The whole school will celebrate World Book Day on Friday 9th of March. It is always an exciting day with all pupils invited to dress up as their favourite BOOK character (please do ensure it is a character from a book). There will be prizes for each class character winner and overall school 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. Children are asked to bring in their favourite book for Drop Everything And Read time at 11am. The 1st and 2nd classes will take part in the annual story writing competition. All class will enjoy a range of different activities to mark World Book Day-quizzes, projects, designing bookmarks and drawing their favourite book characters. Looking forward to a great day!
We have been very lucky to welcome Fiona from Recreate to come into our school for art sessions with the 2nd class children. Recreate is a social enterprise making art materials and educational supplies accessible and affordable to the community for all kinds of creative purposes. The first task was to build the tallest free standing tower using the resources in the Recreate tool box. Next the children could make whatever they liked with the materials, using tape, glue and scissors. The children also made mosaics and fun felt pizzas. Everyone was so creative- there were pencil holders, robots, castles, football pitches and lots more. It was so much fun!
Ms Moore has started knitting classes with all the 2nd classes. The aim is for each child to knit a square which will then be sown together to make a blanket. Although knitting can be difficult to grasp straight away, most of the children (and teachers) are finding it very relaxing!
Our annual cake sale took place in the school on Friday 9th of February. It is always a great event in the school calendar and certainly didn't disappoint this year. All donations of buns, cakes, slices and treats were greatly received by our fantastic Parents' Association and helpers on the day. Every class had a chance to come to the hall and pick their goodies. Many thanks to the very generous €2 donations from the children. The grand total of €1125 was raised.
The 1st of February not only marks the first day of Spring but also it is when we celebrate St Brigid's Day. In school some of the classes made St Brigid's crosses while others coloured in beautiful pictures of her cloak.
The second class and senior infant children have been participating in Ceili dancing classes since September. This month they got to perform their dancing skills in front of their parents at a special Ceili dancing show. They were all fantastic and so were those parents that got involved at the end of the show. Well done everyone.
The junior infants and first classes have now started their Ceili dancing classes. Here's Mrs Adderley's junior infants having their very first lesson.
It's a new year and that means new resolutions. This year each class is going to try and do an extra bit of exercise each day to keep us fit and healthy. Therefore we have started doing the 10@10 in association with RTE's Operation Transformation. Each morning we watch it on the board and follow along with the exercises. You can do it too at home...it only takes 10 minutes.
