Chinese New Year and St. Brigid’s Day in HTETNS

Last week in school all classes celebrated and learned about Chinese New Year and St. Brigid’s Day. There were so many nice activities taking place throughout the week and we captured a few of them to share here!

All classes learned about how 2022 is the Year of the Tiger and lots of creative tigers were spotted around the school.

               

The dragon is believed to bring good luck in Chinese culture and 2nd class made some fantastic chain link dragons!

 

   

For St. Brigid’s Day there were lots of lovely different activities, such as making St. Brigid’s cloak in art and acting out St. Brigid’s story in drama.

           

Wellbeing Week 2022 in Harcourt Terrace E.T.N.S.

This week was Wellbeing Week in Harcourt Terrace E.T.N.S as part of  our Amber Flag application. We had a fantastic week with all members of our school community enjoying some wonderful, mindful activities. This was very much a child centred week, as the children created wellbeing choice boards, where they democratically selected the wellbeing activity they wished to do. Our wonderful staff went on a 5km walk and stopped off at our schools permanent location, which left everyone excited about our bright future. The children all took part in our couch to 5km challenge, travelling 1km a day. We had a virtual fundraiser in aid of Pieta house. Thank you to everyone who donated as it is very much appreciated. We are well on our way to become ambassadors for wellbeing, by obtaining an Amber Flag for our school. Check out how we got on in this short video:

 

LGBT+ Awareness week & World Children’s day in HTETNS

All of our children learned about different types of Families this week through stories. We identified how families can look different but have the same core values such as love, respect and care.

All of our classes responded to stories about families through artwork and discussion.

The children in 2nd class drew a family self-portrait. They also represented the love we have for our families by creating a collaborative class art piece.

We also celebrated World Children’s day in Harcourt Terrace E.T.N.S too. We asked all of our children to “Reimagine a better world”. The children came up with some lovely ideas. Check out how we got on below!
