Scoil Naomh Eltin Dance Challenge
We always knew that the staff here at Scoil Naomh Eltin are an awfully talented bunch, so over the mid-term break they put their skills to the test. Ms. O'Connell came up with a dance routine and here is the result!
Keep an eye out around Kinsale for students who will be taking part in the dance challenge this week and have a go at home with your family!
We had great fun making this video and hope that you enjoy watching it.
Hopefully all our amazing students will be 'home again' at school soon.
Wow! A fantastic competition this week. The imagination and creativity of all the entries was wonderful to see and very difficult for the judges to pick between. Well done to everyone who took part. We hope the pancakes tasted as well as they looked!
But winners there must be and so well done to the following who all get homework passes for their wonderful culinary creations:
- Rainbow stack (Bianca, 2nd class)
- Pancake weaving (Aibhlinn, 4th class)
- Green Caterpillar (Jane Foster, Snr Infants)
- The lion (Alexandra 1st class)
- Teddy bear (Olivia Grabska – 5th class).
Again, well done to everyone who took part. Have a lovely mid-term and take a break from your computer screens!
Internet Safety Day Competition
Congratulations to all who took part in our Internet Safety Day Poster Competition. You can see from the entries we received that the standard was above and beyond our expectations.
