Principal’s Message

June 2018

Dear Parents and Pupils,

Another year almost over, where does the time go? Despite storms and snow it was another busy, productive year again in Star of the Sea. Along with all the classroom work we introduced an after school coding class for 4th and hope to expand on STEM subjects in the years ahead. We had visits from music groups, including John Spillane, Theatre shows and workshops, participation in Cór Fhéile and great success in the City Sports. Our involvement in Sciath na Scol didn’t yield any trophies but the children showed great skill and teamwork. Christmas shows a plenty this year and a fantastic, fun Christmas Fair run by the Parents’ Association.
Our PA again sponsored gymnastics and Irish Dancing lessons. They have purchased additional picnic tables for the yard which are going down a treat with the pupils and the PA have contributed generously to the purchase of a school stage.
This year we had three excellent GAA coaches -Keelin O’ Flynn, Emma Harrington and Ronan Harrington. Our pupils greatly benefited from their enthusiasm and skills throughout the year. Frank. brought his Zumba dancing and kept us all active.
We recently conducted a survey on the provision of swimming lessons in Star of the Sea and the results are attached here.

A sincere thank you to all our families for their support and co-operation throughout the year. Have an enjoyable and safe summer.
