Last Wednesday, ten children attended the annual STAR Awards in the beautiful President’s Hall in the Law Society building on Blackhall Place.
The STAR awards is a very special awards ceremony, as the winners are nominated and voted for by the other pupils, staff and parents of the children in St. Gabriel’s NS. The winners are all recognised for their hard work, talents, and contribution to the school and community.
A big thank you to all of the Junior and Senior Infant parents who attended Anna’s Jolly Phonics workshop on Tuesday. We hope this workshop will help you to help your child more at home with learning phonics.
We also recommend using the Jolly Phonics app at home. This can easily be downloaded on your smart phone or tablet.
Don’t forget the next workshop for parents is next Tuesday, 11th October at 9am.
This workshop will introduce parents to the Help My Kid Learn website, and some great activities you can use with your children both at home and out and about.
