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!

Friday Assembly- September 16th

We had a great school assembly today. Our theme for this month is co-operation and 3rd class showed everyone some fun games where the boys and girls all have to work together. Everyone can go off and try them now in their own classes! We also listened to a song about counting on our friends and getting along.

Then there was big excitement for Dan’s Principal Awards. Check out the photos below for some pictures from today.

Well done everyone and have a lovely weekend!

What Senior Infants Have Been Up To!

Senior infants have been very busy since we returned to school, learning and having lots of fun too! Our theme this month is “Homes” so we tried to incorporate that into a lot of our learning activities. Check out a few snippets of what we have been up to!


We have been doing lots of fine motor tasks during morning activities to get our hands nice and strong for writing.

In art we drew self portraits!

In English we learned the story of Hansel and Gretel – we designed our own ginger bread house and learned what characters and settings were!

In aistear we had a lot of fun in the home corner!

We had lots of messy fun pouring, measuring, emptying and imagining we were baking at the tuff tray!

In small world we played with different types of homes including animal homes!

We built and designed some really cool types of homes in Construction!

We have been very busy and looking forward to lots more learning next week!

Wonderful innovative teaching and learning in HTETNS!

There has been a lot of wonderful work happening around Harcourt Terrace ETNS over the past week. Here are a few samples of the learning opportunities our fantastic team have provided for our valued children. We empower creativity when it comes to teaching and learning. Well done to all involved!

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!

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!
