The Irish Flag and a copy of the 1916 Proclamation are presented to St. Saviour’s N.S.

Wednesday 30th September the Army arrived to present our school with the Irish flag and the proclamation. Mrs. Carroll met them at the gate where the children from 1st to 4th class greeted them waving their own handmade Irish flags.

They presented the flag and the proclamation to two pupils from 1st class: Hope Halligan and Isabel Ryan in front of all our 5th and 6th class students. Alex Foley read a passage from the class novel - Guns of Easter. Abbie Walsh read a passage from the proclamation. It was a great occasion in our school.

Early Start Programme

Posted by on Feb 25, 2013 in Slider | 0 comments

Early Start Programme
The Early Start programme is the only Department of Education and primary school teacher led programme in the South East. The aim of the programme is to ensure children get the best start in the primary school system. The programme is staffed by a fully qualified primary school teacher and a fully qualified childcare worker. There is two sessions daily one staring at 8.50am - 11.30am, and the second session starting at 12 noon - 2.30pm. Class size is 15 in each session. There is a strong focus on pre reading and pre writing activities. The Aistear programme is implemented in Early Start. Early Start recognises that parents are the primary educators of their child and they are welcomed for workshops and activities throughout the year. We have a safe and stimulating outdoor area which ensures the children have the opportunity to play in the natural environment. The school boasts a state of the art library with a designated junior room and librarian, a multi-sensory room and 2 large indoor recreation areas. Some of the daily activities in Early Start include stories, water play, sand play, turn taking games, dress up role play activities, construction activities and games that will develop hand eye coordination and gross and fine motor skills. We are located in St. Saviour’s N.S. in the Ballybeg area. We are a co-educational primary school. Please feel free to call in and meet our staff and see our facilities.

  In June this year we were awarded our fifth Green Flag- “Biodiversity”. The children have worked very hard in class around the theme “Biodiversity”. They planted some wonderful raised beds to encourage wildlife into our school grounds. They built a bug hotel by the entrance to the school. The infants went on a very exciting 'welly walk' which was enjoyed by all! They also created a fabulous mural made solely of leaves. Thank you to our Green School committee, the local groups that helped with these activities and of course Mrs. Wilson who worked very hard to coordinate this project.
