This year the Doodle 4 Google theme was “Ireland is…..”. The children had to think about what Ireland means to them and base their picture around the Google logo. The teachers were very impressed with the boys and girls drawings and they were all posted off to Google Headquarters this week. Now we must wait with fingers crossed until we hear back from Google. Well done to all the boys and girls who entered.

The Parents Association organised a Coffee Morning in Starbucks in The Square last Tuesday. The money raised was given to the Simon Community in memory of John Whitty, who often volunteered with them.
The Simon Community are also appealing for donations of hats, scarves, gloves, socks, warm jackets, shoes and sleeping bags to give out to people who may be sleeping rough during the cold weather. The donation basket is located at the front door of the school
Back in May, Miss Fitzmaurice and Miss Lea’s classes entered the Irish Fairy Door Company schools competition. They created a fairy garden and wrote a poem and won 4 fairy doors and a worry plaque.
We are delighted to say the fairies are ready to move in now that we have a special new garden created for them in the “Quad” area around by the Junior Infants classrooms. Here is a sneak preview of the new fairy garden before the Grand Opening On Wednesday 18th November 2015. We hope the fairies and the boys and girls in Scoil Carmel have a wonderful time enjoying this new space in the school.
We must thank the children for entering the competition and doing such a superb job. We must also thank The Irish Fairy Door Company for the 4 fairy doors and worry plaque and The Parents Association and Tesco Community Fund for helping the fairies to accessorise their new garden so beautifully!
