Announcement from the Department of Education regarding school closures. ALL schools will be closed Thursday 1st March and Friday 2nd March. HGNS will re-open with regular hours on Monday 5th March (staff planning day has been cancelled).
Aaaaaand... that's it! Junior Infants have completed their Power Hour programme! Well done to all the children (and their families who listened to their reading and read with them at home). Have a look at the final pictures from this week below.
We had a short but challenging week of Power Hour this week! We are flying through our books now - our families are really helping us get better and better at reading!
We have a whole lot of star pupils this week who used their lunch break to help tidy our school yard! As part of keeping our Green Flag, we have to manage the litter in our school. Our pupils are all very good, but litter often blows in from other places or careless people. Luckily, we have a great team at school to keep on top of it!
We were delighted to welcome Caroline and Colin from the Galway Butterfly Project to our school today. Colin had amazing photos of all the 35 butterflies we can find in Ireland, and loads of information to tell us about them all. We are really looking forward to when the weather gets a little more butterfly-friendly and we can start using our new skills to find, photograph and report on the types of butterflies in our area! Have a look at Biodiversity Ireland's website for more information, or for how to get your family involved.
We would love to accept any photos or videos from parents and families, if you would like to add them to our website. Feel free to drop them into the office on a USB stick or CD, or you can email them to the school (firstname.lastname@example.org).
