Ranelagh Gaels GAA coaching in HTETNS!

Today our Junior & Senior Infants enjoyed some gaelic football coaching from former Dublin star and Ranelagh Gaels GAA Club, coaching officer Simon Lambert. The children all had terrific fun working on their agility, balance and co-ordination with the ball. We cannot wait to see Simon again next week! It is great to be able to develop a partnership between Ranelagh Gaels GAA Club and the school. We look forward to this developing further in the future!

Our First Assembly of the year!

Today we all came together to celebrate our first assembly of the year. We welcomed all of our new children and staff to the school. We had some winners from Senior Infants in an Art competition that they entered in June. Their winning entries were displayed in the Hugh Lane Gallery. A huge thanks to Siobhán for organising all of this for our children. What an honour for our school!

Look how much we have grown this year!

Sports day 2022

A huge thank you to all staff, parents and children who made our Annual Sports Day such an enjoyable event for everyone. We had fantastic weather and the children gave an exhibition of sporting skills throughout the day.

A special note of thanks to our parental photography team who captured the day beautifully in this video.

Have a look to see how we got on:

Yard Transformation in Harcourt Terrace E.T.N.S.

A huge thanks to all the parental volunteers who organised a big clean up on Saturday. The new plants and trees have been really appreciated by everyone in our school community. As well as that our parental community received fantastic stencils for yard markings which have really enhanced the children’s enjoyment during breaks. Well done to the parental volunteers who worked in partnership with David at the Dublin City Sport and Well-being Partnership on this initiative. Also Johnstones in Rathmines donated the paint used in this project which we we really appreciate. Harcourt Terrace E.T.N.S is a community of people and children, and that is what makes our school great.
Maith sibh!

 

 

 

Our Bread Bake Off!

As part of our Aistear topic about the farm we read the story of The Little Red Hen. We learned how she baked her own bread. In writing we found out all about instructions and together we wrote some instructions for how to make bread. The children were fantastic following the instructions and did some amazing baking. Dan and Lori came to our classroom to judge the best bread! All the children enjoyed tasting the bread that they had made and said it was “Super delicious!”.

Student Council meet with our P.G.T.A to discuss our yard!

Today in Harcourt Terrace our active Student Council met with representatives of the P.G.T.A to discuss how to lay out some yard markings for our playground area. The children all decided through a democratic process. Thanks to the the parent representatives for including our Student Council in this important decision. As the saying goes “nothing about us, without us”.

The P.G.T.A will be assembling on Saturday from 11Am-3PM to paint the yard markings onto the ground via the stencils we kindly received this week. If you can lend a hand please get in touch with the P.G.T.A and pop along on Saturday.
