On Monday morning at 9.20am, lots of new boys and girls came to Scoil Carmel for their very first day of primary school. The place was busy with families and children alike finding their way to their new classrooms to meet their new teachers, Mrs. Soffe, Miss Foley, Miss Kilboy and Miss Fitzmaurice. Their teachers were so excited to finally welcome them into the classroom where they will spend their first year of school learning lots of new things in a fun and active way.
It’s hard to believe the first week has finished and already the children have learned lots of new songs, visited the PE hall and the cool school yard, coloured bright pictures and made lots of new friends including Rocaí Rua. It’s sure to be a busy year in Junior Infants, so make sure to check into the school website throughout the year to see some photographs that will show you the cool learning activities the children get involved in!
Book lists for 1st and 2nd classes have been updated for next school year. School closures for 2014/2015 have also been updated. Enjoy the summer holidays!.
