Aistear in Saint Luke's NS
(139) Wednesday, January 29, 2014

This year, Aistear has been introduced in the Junior and Senior Infants classrooms. Aistear is play-based Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and it is designed for children from 0-6 years of age. Some of the children who attended creche or playchool prior to coming to primary school may have had experiences of Aistear before. The children play in different areas in the classroom that are set up by the teacher (e.g. "The Kitchen", "Construction", "Junk Art", "The Doctor's", sand area etc). The children play in a different area each day, and are encouraged to get into role and wholeheartedly participate in each area. The idea of Aistear is to promote oral language development through imagination and play. The children are really enjoying Aistear and love getting into character!


 
Dance Classes in Saint Lukes NS
(138) Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Children from 3rd class have been participating in dance after school on Wednesdays. Dancing takes place in the hall directly after school until 3.30p.m. The boys and girls have been learning a variety of different styles of dance, from hip-hop and musical theatre to pop and traditional dances. The children are extremely enthusiastic and are having a lot of fun. It is a great way for the children to keep fit and healthy.

Children who are coming to dance should bring extra water and wear their P.E. tracksuit to school with suitable runners.  

 

We hope to have an end of year show for the parents in June. Watch this space!


Many thanks to Ms. McDonnagh for teaching the Dance Classes. The children love these classes.

The theme for the week is:

“Catholic Schools Week- Faith in Our Community”

 

Each class plan to design a specific “ Sacred Space “ in their class room to celebrate the Catholic Schools Week and to hold a prayer service in their own class

 

Each day has a particular theme as outlined  below:

 

Monday

Faith calls us to live – Design a St Brigid’s Cross

Tuesday

Faith calls us to learn – We share what we learn about God

Wednesday

Faith calls us to share – Grand Parents Day – School Visit

Thursday

Faith calls us to celebrate – Prayer Service celebrating the New Art

Faith calls us to serve – Senior Classes visit Junior Classes to serve

 

Please encourage your child to participate wholeheartedly in Catholic Schools Week and to talk to you at home about the events in school.

 

Bearing in mind the adage “ the family that prays together – stays together “ Catholic Schools Week is the ideal opportunity for the family to offer a prayer together as a family.

 

Please take the opportunity to visit the Catholic Church, St Luke The Evangelist, during the Catholic Schools Week. Fr Seamus Connell will welcome all with open arms.

 

Le gach deaghuí,

GREEN SCHOOLS

 

Dear parents,

We are trying to make St Luke's more environmentally friendly. We are trying our best to reduce litter and to recycle more. In order to achieve this it is important that:    

  • Every child has a reusable lunch box from today onwards to use everyday.
  • Every child brings home their own rubbish in their lunchbox to be put in the bin at home as this is our school policy. Thanks for your help.

 

We believe it is of great benefit to the children to learn about recycling and reducing waste. We want to make St Luke's a better place for our whole community.

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Róisín Smith (co-ordinator)

I would like to thank all our families for their support during the first term of the school academic year 2013 – 2014.

 

The true spirit of Christmas and the message of Jesus Christ are alive and well in St Luke’s National School. Numerous donations were made by the families in the school to the Philippines Collection held in November & December. In total €484.50 has been donated to a very worthy cause.

 

The Official Opening of St Luke’s National School was a great success. Many thanks to everyone who took part. The lyrics and melody of the School Anthem will be heard in the parish for many years to come.

 

The culmination of the first terms work is the Christmas Concert. It is inspirational to see the children participate so wholeheartedly and perform wonderfully on the concert nights. Your attendance on the night encourages and motivates the children

 

However, it is your day to day support of the teaching staff, that ensures a strong partnership in education and assists in providing the children with a meaningful and worth while long term educational experience.

 

I am grateful to the Parents’ Association who have dedicated themselves to the school in so many ways throughout the first term. The Halloween and Christmas celebrations were a great success.

 

School re-opens on Monday 6th January 2014 @ 9.00a.m.
