One of our students from 3rd class paid a visit to the building site today. He spoke with Dean, one of the builders on site, and Dean was able to tell him how the build was progressing. It was great to see the outlines of the new hall and classrooms coming together. Thanks to all at MMD Construction for their hard work so far.
Spirits were high on Friday, 4th April in Scoil Naomh Eltin when the Six Nations Cup was brought to the school by Ultan O'Callaghan (Munster Domestic Rugby Manager) and Denis Collins from Kinsale Rugby Club. The pupils dressed in tricolour and sang Ireland's Call for the Six Nations visitors. Ultan promoted physical activity for all the children and encouraged them to get active in any sports club including their local rugby club. This visit endorsed our status as an Active School and reaffirmed our allegiance to our active school flag achieved by Scoil Naomh Eltin. There was a buzzing atmosphere as the Six Nations Cup was escorted out through Scoil Naomh Eltin's guard of honour. Some of our budding rugby enthusiasts have their eyes on this cup for the future!
Junior and Senior Infants, First and Second Classes are currently partaking in an eight-week block of Speech Drama Classes. The children are working on all elements of Speech, Voice, Drama, Acting and Mime. The classes are fun and beneficial to the children - inspiring imagination and creativity, and helping them to increase their confidence. An experienced and talented Speech and Drama teacher visits our school on Mondays to teach these classes. Below are some pictures of our Senior Infants aboard an imaginary pirate ship!
