Winter Fair

NORTH BAY WINTER FAIR SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16th 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Dear Parents & Guardians,

We are very busy organizing the annual Winter Fair. Be sure to come hungry as there will be loads of delicious International food, a café & cake stall, game area, BBQ, face painting & more.

While it’s a lot of fun, it takes a lot of work to pull together. To make it so successful, we need to have a large number of volunteers to help at the fair and provide DONATIONS! There are so many ways which you can help out and show your support.

SET UP & CLEAN UP

We are looking for helpers to set up on Friday after school and on Sunday starting at 9:30 am. This includes decorations, moving tables and laying out items.

DONATIONS OF TOYS, BOOKS, BRIC-A-BRAC & USED CLOTHING!

Here is your chance to clear out any unwanted toys, household bric-a-brac and books for ages 7+, CDS & DVDS [no VCR tapes] and clothing. We have trouble disposing of items which are broken and missing pieces, so we ask that all items please be in sellable, good condition.

MAKE A FAVOURITE INTERNATIONAL DISH

Have a special International dish which you would like to make? Please contact Mertxe at mertxesaiz@gmail.com

CAFÉ & CAKE STALL ITEMS

We are looking for NUT-FREE goods for the cake stall. Store bought items will be accepted too. Can drop off on Friday after school or bring along to the event.

WORK A STALL

Every stall at the event will need 2-3 volunteers set in two hour shifts.

IF YOU ARE WILLING TO HELP OUT IN ANY CAPACITY, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.

See Hannah or Mertxe,

The Big Dig

Over the past two days all the children in the school took turns to become archaeologists at the Big Dig. We learned all about life during the Viking times by exploring the remains of a Viking House and uncovering lots of ecofacts and artefacts. All the classes had a great time. Thanks to Kathleen for organising the Big Dig to come to our school.

Shining Bright in Yellow for World Mental Health Day

The children really outdid themselves with the enormous effort they all made to wear yellow or an alternative bright colour for World Mental Health Day last Wednesday 10th of October. The school was buzzing with activities and chat around Mental Health. Below are a few snapshots of all the children in their yellow. Well done everyone!

Buddy Reading

In our school lots of classes are now enjoying Buddy Reading. This is a session where an older class partners up with a younger class to read together.
Every new child in Junior Infants now has a buddy from 6th class and both classes are really enjoying reading together. The sessions are great for both classes in promoting lots of important reading skills as well as helping the children’s self-esteem and confidence.
The Junior Infants are delighted to have a bigger child in the school to chat to and get to know and the 6th class are being very responsible in looking after and caring for the younger ones!
