Welcome to St. Patrick's National School's website.
Welcome back and a happy new year to everyone.
After all the excitement of Christmas, we are now looking to this term's projects.
You can view some of Angie's lovely shots of the Christmas musical 'Rock around the Flock', the German recital and some behind the scenes shots.
We are currently getting started on our Write a Book projects. Story mind-maps, character and plot development are all in the process of being developed.
On the subject of authors and writing, we wish to congratulate Kate Burton Stafford and Hannah Stephens who came in the final 16 in the Noelle Ringwood Memorial Writing competition. There were entries from almost 800 entries from 5th and 6th class pupils attending schools around Wicklow.
The Points for Life pilot project is now at its implementation phase and P.E. lessons are focussing on examining and improving basic movement skills of running, jumping, hopping, throwing etc.
The Wicklow National Parks Educational Outreach team will be visiting the school on 30th January and providing a workshop on biodiversity, which will support our work towards our next Green flag.
The November /December Gáscháint phrase can be accessed here. January /February will be uploaded at the end of January in conjunction with the newsletter.
