We had a very successful “Active Week” in Walterstown last week. There were activities everyday, including dancing, a summer walk, and a skipathon. There was something for everyone! We had a fantastic time keeping fit throughout the week.
Our week ended with an amazing “Sports Day”. There were 16 stations and we were so lucky to have great weather. The highlights of the day were the bouncing castle obstacle course and the arrival of the ice-cream van.
Thank you to Ms. O’Rourke and Ms. Jennings for organising and managing the week so well!
There was a huge response to our plant donation initiative! A big thank you to everyone for your generous donations of plants and money.
Everything we received on Friday will be put to good use in the school garden!
Thank you to Brad and Bean Uí Riain for organising and managing the event so well.
This Friday to celebrate how “We Are All Unique” we are encouraging all children to dress up in bright clothes and colourful socks and hats.
We look forward to having a school full of colour where diversity is celebrated.
Juniors to Second Class first to return starting Monday 1st.
From March 1st to March 12th Remote Teaching and Learning will continue on SeeSaw for 3rd to 6th Class.
Two weeks later, on March 15th, 3rd Class to 6th Class will return.
All our wonderful staff here in Walterstown NS are looking forward to welcoming back our fantastic students in the coming weeks.
With the announcement yesterday that all main stream classes are to transition to Remote Learning we are currently arranging for the distribution of school books.
Books can be collected tomorrow Friday January 8th from 10:00 – 14:00 in the hall. Please wear masks. observe social distancing , sanitise hands and leave school premises promptly.
As you are no doubt aware schools will remain closed for the month of January and will move to Remote Learning from Monday 11th January. Although it is very disappointing we are hopeful that this will be our final lockdown. Children had settled down so well during the first term and were thriving from the routines, structure and consistency of school life. I have no doubt that we will pick up from where we left off as soon as we reopen again.
Tomorrow is Christmas Jumper day in Walterstown NS. All children are encouraged to wear Christmas Jumpers to support a great cause!
Donation buckets will be available at the gate before and after school. All proceeds will go to Cobh Hospital.
There is fantastic progress being made with the development of our outdoor area in WNS.
The garden is coming along nicely and it is almost ready for children to begin planting.
Thank you to everyone who has helped out so far. We cannot wait to see the final results!
