March 2019

  • On the 1st of March, Junior Infants, Senior Infants and 1st class were visited by a mum who is also a dental nurse.  She spoke to the classes  all about Dental Hygiene.  They learned about which foods and drinks are high in sugar and so not good for their teeth.  The girls all got a new toothbrush to practise what they had learned in class that day.

  • Our first official Health Promoting Team has been set up and hopefully an exciting year is ahead of them.  The team includes teachers, students and parents of children in the school.

  • The team will look to continue some of the work that has been started by the temporary Health Promoting Committee that was started last year.

  • The temporary Health Promoting Committee carried out surveys to get some ideas about changes that needed to be made to the school according to teachers, parents and students.

  • Many of the school policies have been updated and some new ones created (R.S.E., S.P.H.E., Critical Incident etc) that will help to make our school an even more effective Health Promoting School.
