As preparation for their confirmation, the sixth class pupils have been doing three fundraisers for St Vincent de Paul.
One of the fundraisers was for each pupil to bring in some non-perishable food for the St Vincent de Paul “Food Appeal”. As you can see from the picture they brought lots of food for the less fortunate.
Also as to raise money, all of the children brought in their families’ spare change which raised €295 to buy toys for the St Vincent de Paul “Toy Appeal”.
As a little extra the sixth classes are hosting a “Jingle Jumpers” day where they all wear a Christmas jumper etc. and bring in €1 for the “Toy Appeal”.
A big thank you to all involved.

We designed bridges using only paper, Sellotape and paper clips. A toy car was able to travel across them!
Good luck to the 6th class students who are doing the entrance tests for Ardgillan Community College and for Balbriggan Community college.

I learned about this website through SeomraRanga.com. Click on the image to go to the Help My Kid Learn website.
This website was developed as part of the National Strategy to Improve Literacy and Numeracy among Children and Young People 2011 — 2020 by the
Department of Education and Skills.
The website’s purpose is to provide fun activities that parents can do with their children to develop their literacy and numeracy. It includes general information, fun activities and useful tips. Help My Kid Learn is a website where people can see that supporting a child’s literacy and numeracy development is a natural, easy and fun activity that can be integrated into any part of their day.
You can choose to browse the site depending on the age of the child: 0-2, 3-4, 5-7, 8-9 or 10-12. Within each section there are suggestions for activities under the headings Talk, Play, Read, Write, Count. Some are tips, others are links to websites, activities or ebooks.
