Congratulations to all the children who made their First Holy Communion last Saturday. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine for the morning and everybody looked fantastic! A big thank you to the Parents' Association for the wonderful spread in the hall, and an even bigger thank you to Miss O'Driscoll for all the hard work in preparing the class.
Over the past number of weeks 5th class pupils have been taking part in "ENGINEERING-in-a-Box" a fun engaging 10 week programme that allows children to work as engineers as they look at engineering and design challenges that have faced humans throughout history. The children aided by two chemical engineers from Eli Lilly have worked together in groups to come up with solutions. Children have demonstrated some fantastic problem solving skills and have thoroughly enjoyed each lesson
School will close at 12pm on Friday, 4th of May for Junior and Senior Infants.

Re: School Communication App for your phone
Welcome back to the summer term at Scoil Naomh Eltin.
As a green school we have decided to try and eliminate paper correspondence. The school is delighted to announce that we will shortly roll out the Aladdin Schools Connect to parent/guardian of children in our classes.
Aladdin Connect is an app individualized to your family. It is a fantastic way to enhance a school's communication with parents. It enables parents to stay connected and informed about their child's education by:
Along with strengthening our home/school partnership, we also envisage Aladdin Connect helping the school by:
This evening, you will receive a text message containing your registration link. There will be one link per parent, which will allow the parent to access information for all their children in the school from one user account. We would encourage all parents/guardians to download the app to their phone.
Please do not forward this text or share this link as this is a unique registration code for each parent for your child/children in this school. During registration you will choose a password that will be used in conjunction with your email address to securely access the Aladdin Connect going forward.
If you choose you may share your own contact details with other parents of children in the same class as your children, but please be reassured that this information will not be shared unless you choose to share it. This will replace the PA Contact List.
Once you are registered you will be sent an email with links to download the Aladdin Connect App for your mobile device. The main advantage of using the App is to receive immediate alerts for app messages sent by your school. Downloading the App is highly recommended to enhance both the parent and school's Connect experience.
We hope that you enjoy using Aladdin Connect. The secretary or myself will welcome any feedback or questions you may have.
Is mise le meas,

6th class have organised a special fundraiser to help contribute to their school tour to Dingle this year. Many of the staff members have very kindly brought forward pictures of themselves from their childhoods. It’s now up to the students of ScoilNaomhEltin to match the childhood pictures to the correct person. Students are invited to bring in €2 tomorrow Thursday 22/03/18 to partake and see can they match them all correctly. There will be prizes for the winners from each class.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Míle buíochas do na daltaí go léir agus do na thuismitheoirí iontacha a thug cabhair dúinn.
