Sports Day 2023

What an amazing day we had last Friday for Sports Day. It was a lovely community event and we loved having parents and guardians there to cheer the children on and share in the fun of the day.

It was a day of sunshine, sports, fun, bubbles and ice-cream! Some of our favourite things here at HTETNS!

Check out this video with a selection of pictures from the day showcasing our amazing students in action.

Creative Schools in HTETNS

We are so lucky at Harcourt Terrace to be partaking in the Creative Schools initiative this year.

We have had a wonderful two weeks enjoying a range of fantastic activities guided by our creative associate Bethan Parkes.

From K-Pop workshops to painting the walls of our school creativity has been flowing all over the school!

We started our Creative Fortnight with a drama workshop with Janine. The children absolutely loved this and so much fun trying out different kinds of drama skills. Each class worked on something different which gave the teachers lots of ideas to share and try out again!

Next we moved on to some visual art with Bethan! We created circles to display in our school lobby, we experimented with types of painting, explored different materials, we worked with geometric shapes, and got to work painting the walls of our school making it bright and beautiful.

The next time you visit our school keep your eyes peeled for some of this beautiful art around the building!

Our next creative activity was a K-pop workshop with Orna. This was something new for a lot of our students and they absolutely loved it. It was so much fun moving to the music and expressing ourselves through dance!

1st, 2nd and 3rd class also got to experiment with different instruments thanks to David who ran a workshop for our students with some of his own musical instruments.

Finally, we worked on our whole school project of creating bunting to display in our school. Each child in our school created their own individual piece which will be all tied together to represent our unique and individual school community. The children really enjoyed working with fabric and decorating their piece however they liked.

We ended the two weeks with a special performance from the Army Band. We got to learn about all the different instruments in the band and listen, sing and dance to some amazing music.

What a wonderful two weeks of music, dance, art and creative expression we have had! We are very thankful to be a part of this initiative and a special thank you to our Creative Associate Bethan and Ronnie and Siobhán who have facilitated and supported the organisation of these amazing experiences.

 

Winter Show Performance 2022

On Wednesday 14th of December the children of Harcourt Terrace ETNS all performed on stage for the whole-school community. Check out how they got on in this short video. I think you will agree that they all look amazing. Well done to Hyeguen who captured all of these fantastic pictures and compiled this wonderful video. A big shout out to our PGTA, bakers, staff, children, parental community and wider community who contributed to us raising €2,003.37 towards new literacy resources on the day too through our bake sale and raffle. Maith sibh!

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!

 

 

 

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.

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!
