Busy month at Vicarstown national school

Peter Mulcahy, Principal, is a member of the Webwise group and gave an Internet safety talk to the parents and the wider community recently. We are setting up an Internet Safety Forum among the stakeholders in the vicinity, the objective being to share and improve the understanding of modern technology amongst our school community. This should lead to better and safer usage of the Internet and techology for all our pupils.  Please get in touch with the school office on office@vicarstownns.com if you would like further information.

A very big thank you to Paralympian Orla Barry who came in to speak to the pupils about her experiences as a Paralympian last week.  Orla brought in her medals and gave a very interesting talk on her achievements.  The children had some wonderful questions and learned some great lessons about the inclusive nature of sport at its best.

The pupils enjoyed six fantastic weekly rugby sessions facilitated by Emmet O’Callaghan of Munster Rugby during January and February. Girls soccer team

Well done to our girls soccer team who had a great SPAR FAI Soccer tournament in Blarney. They won 2 out of their three games and played some great soccer.  Our boy’s soccer team will play their a tournament in Mayfield AFC, wishing them the best of luck!

The Active School Flag Committee, including our parent representative, are delighted to show you their new ASF Yard Leader bibs which they wear everyday during the breaks. They are all doing a fantastic job, well done!

The playground was full of super heros, Disney princesses, Wally’s, pirates and a fabulous Gangster Granny from Senior Infants to celebrate World Book Day. It is great to see the kids getting so much inspiration from books.
