End of Year Celebration & Graduation

End of Year Celebration & Graduation

Today we celebrated our summer holidays with a visit to Carnew playground. We enjoyed an ice-cream cone on our way back to school. It was a lovely way to end the school year. We welcomed families and friends to join with us to celebrate a fantastic year of learning, initiatives and fun along the way. We raised our Amber Flag in acknowledgement of the wonderful work undertaken in recent years to promote and highlight positive mental health and wellbeing.

Today we said goodbye to our wonderful 6th Class pupils. We are incredibly proud of the talented and kind young people they are today. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow and flourish over the years. They should be proud of all they have accomplished during their time in primary school. We wish to thank our 6th Class pupils and families for their support and kindness throughout their time in All Saints’ National School. Our thoughts and prayers are with the pupils as they prepare to commence an exciting new chapter. Wishing you every success and happiness.

Many thanks to the pupils and staff on their fantastic achievements and learning this year. Thank you to our families for your support and cooperation. We also wish to thank the Parent Teacher Association and Board of Management for their commitment, generosity and assistance.

Wishing our school community an enjoyable and safe summer holiday. We are looking forward to welcoming our pupils and families when school reopens at 9am on Wednesday 24th August 2022.

It has been a very enjoyable summer term developing our school garden. The pupils designed, created, and painted their designs on our garden wall. It was great fun! Well done to everyone on your lovely designs. The garden is so bright and colourful. It is a lovely space to enjoy. We are looking forward to continuing this project next year.

We have been very busy the last few weeks. We enjoyed a trip to Tomnafinnogue Wood as part of our school fundraiser. We visited the Arklow Maritime Museum, learning all about boats and ship wrecks. The children took part in a scavenger hunt, an archaeological dig and building boats that would float. We then enjoyed a picnic at the playground and a beach clean-up as part of our Greenschool’s Maritime Flag. Fun days and plenty more to come before our summer holidays.
