We get to know all our pupils well and focus on them as individuals. We cherish them all equally and nurture their individual talents at every opportunity. The trust you, the parents and guardians, place in us to oversee your child’s growth and development is always to the forefront of our thinking and we aim to see your expectations fulfilled.

She shared her experiences of what happened during the Christmas season and displayed items, including toys, that she has had since her own childhood. Go raibh míle maith agat Alice!

Scoil Eoin Celebrates Friendship

DSC 0659

Positivity and kindness were found in abundance in Scoil Eoin this November and December as the pupils and staff celebrated Friendship Month. We have been celebrating Friendship month for a number of years and this year new activities and initiatives  were added to emphasize the importance of friendship in all our lives. Children enjoyed lessons and discussions on how to make, maintain and rebuild friendships as well as engaging in many friendship activities such as "Random Act of Kindness", "Secret Friend", and "The Gratitude Jar". The corridors of Scoil Eoin were decorated in Friendship Themed Art (please see our gallery for photographs). Books which explore the theme of friendship, such as Charlotte's Web, My Friend Bob and Jimmy and Jenny were read in some classes, whilst others engaged with the topic of friendship through songs and poetry. Overall an "Attitude of Gratitude" was fostered throughout the whole school which we hope the children will continue to nurture all year round!

 

Victorious Valleys!

Members of the Valley Rovers Camogie and Ladies Football teams came to visit Scoil Eoin on November 27th. They brought with them their impressive silverware having been victorious in 3 finals this year!

The Valley Rovers Under 21 Footballers won the County and the Valley Rovers Under 18 Ladies Footballers won the South West and Minor County Final.

The ladies received a tremendous cheer from the sea of green Scoil Eoin supporters in the school hall and in turn, members of the winning teams gave heart felt speeches encouraging the children to get involved in sport at any age and reminded them of the opportunities that sport provides for fun, friendship and fitness!

We are very proud of all involved and we wish them continued success in the future.

Yes it's that time of the year again, Christmas is just around the corner and the children of Scoil Eoin have been busy getting into the spirit of the festive season by once again participating in the Shoe Box Appeal. This year, like others years, was a massive success with over 200 shoe boxes being donated to this very worthy cause! Well done to all involved, your efforts will bring happiness to others across the globe this Christmas.

Pictured above with the Shoe boxes are members of the Green School committee who are busy working towards our newest Green Flag "Global Citizenship - Litter & Waste" by promoting awareness of the issues surrounding litter and waste on a global scale.

 

Sciath Na Scol Champions!

Comhghairdeas!!! A huge congratulations is in order for the Scoil Eoin boys team who played their hearts out all season and became Sciath na Scol champions on Nov 9th. Great performances were put in by all players on the panel. Two buses of supporters from 3rd - 6th class traveled to Páirc Uí Rinn to see Scoil Eoin defeat Aghada. The team battled right to the final whistle and were given tremendous support from the students, staff and parents who turned up in high numbers to cheer on the players. The Irish Examiner described the match as "... a scintillating final where the sides threw caution to the wind, but it was Innishannon who emerged victorious over an outstanding Aghada side in the DF2 Final".

The final score was Innishannon 4-2, Aghada 1-10.

The team received a hero's welcome upon their return to Scoil Eoin and the team captain Seán Mac an tSaoi gave an impression speech as Gaeilge to the supporters waiting in the school hall.

A big thank you to all involved.
