Summer is here at last!
It has been a challenging year and we are all looking forward to the bright summer days ahead. These last few weeks of school are some of the busiest of the whole year at Scoil an Spioraid Naoimh. There is plenty of learning taking place – in the on-line space, in the classroom, as well as outdoor lessons. We can now avail more of the wonderful amenities on our doorstep with trips to the beach and the re-introduction of some initiatives like outdoor GAA coaching. Our 6th class children are preparing for their transition to secondary school and the next exciting phase of their educational experience. They are looking so grown up in their Class of 2021 SSN hoodies.
End of Year preparations – do we have your email address?
Parents and Guardians are reminded that they should provide an email address to the Secretary’s Office email@example.com – if they have not already done so – to facilitate the emailing of End of Year School reports in June.
