Seachtain na Gaeilge 2022

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2022

Bhain na páistí taitneamh as Seachtain na Gaeilge. D’fhoghlaim siad rince Gaelach, amhránaíocht, filíocht agus ceol traidisiúnta ar an bhfeadóg stáin i rith na coicíse. The children enjoyed Seachtain na Gaeilge. They learned irish dancing, songs, poems and traditional Irish music on the tin whistle throughout the fortnight. This video gives you a flavour of the learning that took place throughout Seachtain na Gaeilge to celebrate our national language and heritage. It is wonderful to see the children embracing all things Irish in Scoil Carmel. We hope you all have a lovely St. Patrick's Day and enjoy the few days off. Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh go léir - Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone

World Book Day - Quad and Trail

World Book Day - Quad and Trail

The school looked amazing yesterday as Scoil Carmel celebrated World Book Day! Every class visited the quad to see the storybook scenes laid out. The children were able to guess all the books correctly and won the night off homework! Then they went on a trail to visit all the decorated doors around the school. Every class worked together to make their classroom door look like a cover of a famous book and we're sure you'll agree they did an amazing job!

Scoil Carmel's Sensory Paths

Scoil Carmel's Sensory Paths

Here is a sneak peek of the two brand new sensory paths that were laid in Scoil Carmel this weekend! It is because of the generosity of parents, friends and family of Scoil Carmel that we were able to purchase these invaluable sensory resources to compliment our sensory room which is has become an integral part of the school for many children. We look forward to welcoming the children back after the midterm break and seeing the joy, focus and calm these amazing sensory pathways will bring to them. Thank you to the Sensory Committe for the work in organising Sensory Path Ireland to come to the school this weekend. The company is run by Martin Kennedy, a former principal and graphic designer. You can check out the amazing work his company does for primary school's all around Ireland on his website, Facebook and Instagram: https://www.sensorypathireland.ie/ https://www.facebook.com/Sensory-Path-Ireland-105928890857189 https://www.instagram.com/sensorypathireland/

100 Days Of School Slideshow

100 Days Of School Slideshow

Thank you to Mrs. Ryan for compiling this lovely slideshow that gives a flavour of the fun everyone in Scoil Carmel had while celebrating the 100th day of school on Wednesday. The children and staff looked super in their 100 days t-shirts and the classrooms were filled with happy faces as the children engaged in lots of cool activities to celebrate the number 100 and all things maths!

100% Success!

100% Success!

We had a great celebration of our 100th Day of School today. A BIG well done to the parents and children for all of the time and effort put into creating the Mazing 100th Day t-shirts worn to school today. Each class contributed some love hearts describing what they love about our school to our 100th day display out front. It captures perfectly what makes Scoil Carmel a special place for the children. A slide show will be shared in the coming days capturing some of the magical moments from our 100th Day of School.

100 Days Of School

100 Days Of School

Next Wednesday 9th February we will be celebrating being at Scoil Carmel 100 days this school year. What a busy and fun time we have had! We will be having a day of celebrations all centred around the number 100! We will be doing art, constructing using 100 bricks, playing games, counting and lots more! On this day we would love the children to come to school with their own designed t-shirt incorporating the number 100 somehow. There are lots of ideas online (just Google 100 days of school t-shirt ideas) and there are some samples attached here for inspiration. It's time to get creative and upcycle an old t-shirt!
