This morning, when we came to school, we were saddened by the news that Geraldine Thorpe, Ella’s granny, passed away yesterday after a relatively short illness. Geraldine was a great friend to the schools of the parish down the years, expending much of her tremendous energy in fundraising for many causes, not least of which was our schools. We would just like her family to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very sad time in their lives. “Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis..”

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) has produced a number of very helpful Tip Sheets and Video clips to give parents a pretty comprehensive introduction to what is contained in the Maths Curriculum at Junior Level (up to 2nd Class).. You might find it interesting to clik on the link below and have a look at what they have to offer..
