Wonderful News for the Girls of Scoil an Spioraid Naoimh
On May 1st, our girls from 4th, 5th and 6th classes participated in the Cork International Choral Festival in the City Hall in Cork. Under the direction of Mrs. Maeve Ann O Brien, (2nd Class Teacher) our choir sang “Spreading the News” by Herbert Oliver and “Ding Dong Dedero”.
For all who heard the choir perform, it was indeed a magic moment. There was absolute delight when the results were called and our girls were awarded First Prize in the Primary School Section of the festival. All the hard work had paid off and it was a well deserved win.
The Food Dudes Programme
As a Healthy School, Scoil an Spioraid Naoimh (Cailíní) is delighted to be participating in the Food Dudes programme, starting on Monday, April 22nd. All pupils were recently given a letter for their parents which explains how the programme works and what is involved. This letter can be viewed by clicking on the following link: Food Dudes - Letter to Parents
Food Dudes is a programme developed by the University of Wales, Bangor, to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home. It is based on positive role models (the Food Dudes characters), repeated tasting and rewards. In large-scale studies in schools in England and Wales and pilot studies in schools in Ireland, the Programme has been shown to be effective and results long lasting across the primary age range, regardless of gender, school size, geographic and socio-economic factors.
It is ultimately designed to enable children to enjoy eating healthy diets, and to create a healthy eating culture within schools.
