The Beast from the East arrived in Scoil Eoin with a few gentle flurries of snow. It didn’t take long for the “Beast” to gather momentum! The boys had great fun in the snow before Storm Emma swept in and closed every school in the country for two days!
6th Class boys in Scoil Eoin were honoured to recently receive a visit from a very special author, Kieran Crowley. Their teacher, Miss Reihill, read his novel “The Mighty Dynamo” to the class in the first term this year. The boys absolutely loved the book and were genuinely pleased to meet Kieran in the flesh. Prior to his visit the class wrote character descriptions, which delighted Kieran. He spent the morning with the boys, enchanting the class with stories, including the story of his own life as a writer. He invited questions from the boys and finished up with a book based table quiz. Not only was Kieran generous with his time, but he gifted a variety of books to the class and to the school.
Scoil Eoin’s Green School Committee are doing super work throughout the school under the stewardship of Green Schools Coordinator, Mrs. Healy. Work towards our 8th Green Flag for Marine Environment is ongoing, but maintenance of our current Green Flags is important. David and William rewarded classes with WEEE fridge magnets this week, to encourage continuous recycling of batteries.
Thanks to past pupils for their help during their week of work experience and especially for treating classes to a display of their frisbee skills.
Thank you to Community Garda, Anthony Mc Sweeney who visited Scoil Eoin recently. Senior Infants thoroughly enjoyed exploring the work of the Gardaí before Garda Anthony’s visit.
Scoil Eoin will be closed on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th February, with the school re-opening on Monday 19th. Enjoy the break!
Pancake Tuesday is one of the children’s favourite days of the year. Miss O’ Donoghue’s 1st Class had great fun making .. and eating .. theirs!!
For Safer Internet Day, 6th Class compiled & administered surveys for all classes in Scoil Eoin. The results were eye opening and in some cases, alarming. Results will be posted in the form of graphs around the school.
