Newly elected Student Council in HTETNS!

Today in Harcourt Terrace E.T.N.S our newly elected student council met for the first time to make two very important decisions. The student council has two representatives from every class in the school.

They decided that the school will pursue the Green flag as our next new initiative following on from the Amber flag. Further information on the Green flag is available here: Green-Schools – Working together for a sustainable future (greenschoolsireland.org)

 

The second important decision taken was our school motto on well-being was decided. The motto is: “If you see someone without a smile give them yours.” This motto was created by Junior and Senior Infants. All classes put forward a motto but the student council thought that this was the best one for our school.

The Student council will meet every fortnight to make important decisions. As the saying goes “Nothing about us without us”.

Well done to all involved!

Autism Acceptance Month 2022

In April we celebrated Autism Acceptance month. It was a month where everyone in our school community came together. The parents hosted a coffee morning. The children and staff enjoyed lots of fun activities, celebrating how wonderful we all are together. We explored values like friendship, acceptance, inclusion and understanding. The children in our Autism classes and mainstream classes joined in classroom activities together. Check out how we got on in this short video:

Earth Day 2022

April 22nd is the official date of Earth Day and today second class learned all about the theme of this year’s Earth Day “Invest in the planet”.

We learned that this could mean investing our time, energy and resources into making the earth a better place to live.
We made promises to the earth on what we would do to invest in the planet!
We came up with some great ideas check them out here.

Signs of Spring!

1st Class took a walk to nearby Belgrave Square where we looked for signs of Spring. We found insects, bird nests, daffodils, buds and lots more. Then we had so much fun in the sunny playground – possibly the best sign of Spring of all!

Ceol álainn le cloisteáil ag an Tionól!

Bhí ceol álainn le cloisteáil againn ag an Tionól. We all came together for our very first whole-school assembly of 2022. The children all sang, laughed and some even played the spoons for us. Dan presented his “Principal Awards” to some children who really excelled this week. Tá gach duine sa scoil ag deánamh sár-iarracht Gaeilge a labhairt i gcomhair seachtain na Gaeilge. We are really looking forward to our Lá Glás next Wednesday. Scoil Náisiúnta Ardán Fhearchair ag Foghlaim le Chéile abú!
