On Monday all the 5th classes went to Xtreme for their school tour. It is an adventure centre in Courtlough. When we arrived we were split into groups. We all had to wear harnesses. Each group had a leader. Then the fun began!! Mr. Brown and Ms. Brennock (with Kerrie-Ann in the middle) went on the log swing. Chloe was the only person in our class to make it to the top of the outside climbing wall and Lauren made it to the top of the indoor climbing wall. Rosie did the aerial trekking twice! (Teacher was too scared!!) Colette went on the zip wire. Sean nearly fell off the log swing!! Liam got three bullseyes in archery. Some people didn’t get to do all the activities but we all agree it was the best school tour ever!!
We would like to remind parents about our school policy regarding procedures and preventative measures in relation to Seasonal Influenza/Swine flu.
St. Molaga’s N.S. is operating according to the guidelines issued by the Department of Education as advised by the H.S.E. We are committed to preventing the spread of the virus. We ask that you support our efforts by ensuring your children adhere to good hygiene practices at home.
Parents must be aware of the symptoms of Influenza. These include:
· Sudden onset of high temperature
Two of the following symptoms also:
· Cough/sore throat/Runny nose
· Limb/joint pain
If your child shows symptoms of the illness they should not attend school and if your child develops flu they should remain at home for 7 days from the onset of the illness. Please inform the school if your child develops flu so that we will be able to respond appropriately.
If a child becomes ill in school we will contact you immediately so that they can return home.
Ms Pauline Costello, Principal
