June 21st, 2018 · Comments Off on End of Year Assembly

Well done on a fantastic year. On Wednesday we had our end of year assembly, highlighting the children’s hard work throughout the year. There was particular mention of the work on folktales for our Erasmus project and the school’s achievement in science, we have been awarded an “Award of STEM Excellence” for the twelfth year in a row. Over half the school have represented us in sporting events and thanks to the teachers who contribute their time during lunch and after school to allow this to happen. We also congratulated all those who have worked on committees, won art, spelling and quiz competitions through out the year. Certificates were presented for outstanding achievement including a brand new “St. Damian’s Hero Award”.  A very successful year and well done to all.

The two 4th Classes went to Tymon Park last Wednesday to try their hand at orienteering. They all learnt to read maps to navigate around the park. Thankfully no one got lost. It was a new activity for the majority of children and they really enjoyed the experience.
