Busy year comes to a close at Vicarstown National School

As we come to the end of another year, I’d like to take a few moments to reflection what has been a busy year and look forward to the coming year. On behalf of the Board of Management, I’d like to thank the staff for their hard work and dedication this year. Our staff are an incredible asset that continue to strive for higher standards in all areas. I’d like to thank the Parents. Association and the parent body as a whole for their unwavering support of the school at every opportunity. I’d like to commend all the children for a great year. They have impressed us so much through the year! This year has seen the addition of Rang Oráiste, our Junior ASD Class which has been a great addition to the school. Next year will see the addition of an Early Intervention ASD class and a Fifth mainstream class. This will mean Junior and Senior Infants will be separate classes, other classes groupings will remain the same. The school is growing and this requires careful planning and management. We will continue to seek the input of the school community and thank everyone for their input this year. I wish everyone a well deserved, relaxing and sunny summer break! Le Meas, Peter Mulcahy Principal

 

A Word from Ms Walshe, Rang Dearg Well done to all the girls and boys in 1st and 2nd class. We had a very busy year. We had a brilliant time preparing and performing our school play, Toy’s Christmas. We also did the school proud in the Feis Maitiú competition, thanks to Ms Murray for her help with preparation. Swimming was great fun in the Blarney Golf resort with everyone improving their skills and behaving so well! The pupils of 2nd class received the sacrament of reconciliation and communion, thanks again for the parents input in the ‘Do this in Memory’ program. We really enjoyed Literacy Lift Off in term 3 through our reading and other literacy activities. I wish all the boys, girls and their families a well deserved summer break and look forward to seeing you in the new school year.

A Word From Rang Gorm (Molly reporting) Another year comes to a close… We have done a lot of things this year like Feis Maitiu and the school play. Our school play was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The music was played by our very own Mr. O’Brien. For Feis Maitiu we did two poems called One Inch Tall and The Boogy Man. For Cork City Sports we had 8 people for the run. For the girls we had Emma, Caoimhe, Bríd, Aislin and Alice. For the boys we had Reece, Gearóid and Ronan. We also had the cross country running. In that race we had Emma, Sarah, Caoimhe, Emmet, Alice, Mark, Bríd and Aislin.

A Word from Rang Oráiste- (Aoibhe reporting) Mrs. O’Mahony had a great first year with Rang Oráiste. They went on the school tour, they did the Christmas play, created brilliant art pieces and exercised every day. Mrs. O’Mahony and her class had an amazing tour in Supernova. They ate great food and had great fun. They also had great excitement at Ballincollig Regional Park. The students of Rang Oráiste participated in the Christmas play and had great fun and sang lovely songs. During the year, the children also did amazing art, they enjoyed Seachtain na Gaeilge, building blocks and much more. I hope all the student teachers and SNAs had a great year and hope for many more.

Le Meas, Peter Mulcahy Principal A Word from Rang Buí ( Rebecca Reporting) The Junior and Senior Infant Class have done a lot of work this year. They covered many areas in Aistear and did “Go Noodle” for exercise. Mrs. Looney’s class ate wide varieties of fruit and veg while doing Food Dudes. They did lots of singing and played instruments as well. Juniors and Seniors have done a lot of art work and so did all of the pupils from Rang Oráiste who visited the classroom often. Mrs. Looney’s class have done brilliant work this year and she is very happy with them. A Word from Ms Walshe, Rang Dearg Well done to all the girls and boys in 1st and 2nd class.

They all worked very hard and are now ready to for the next challenges of secondary school and 6th class. As well as this they also participated in the Discover Cork Heritage history project winning 1st prize in the senior class category. They entered Feis Maitiu and took home the cup for 1st place. It was their first time entering the Concern Primary Debating competition and they were delighted to win the County Final. Our 6th class team also won the Blarney Credit Union quiz and came 3rd in the County Final. They also participated admirably in Sciath na Scol, Cork city sports, cycling, tennis coaching and cross Country running. We wish our 6th class pupils lots of happiness and success in Secondary school. A word from Mr O’Brien, Rang Gorm 3rd and 4th class had a very busy year this year. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was a big hit.in the Christmas Concert. The class worked hard for the Feis Maitiu competition and received a merit award. Chess was introduced and the children really thrived with it, all learning the rules, logical thought and good sportsmanship. The school garden took a while to get going with the weather this year but it flourished in recent weeks with a ‘Highly Commended’ award in the Muintir na Tíre competition. Other highlights included Football, Hurling, engineering week, Tom Crean project and the wonderful individual/group projects for the end of year. Wishing you all a lovely summer!6th class group photo
