All About Me!

We will be moving into our new classroom soon and we are preparing lovely displays for our walls.  This All About Me! display will be a very special one as it will help us all to learn new things and cool facts about each other.

They will complete this at home with you as you are the person who knows your child best!  Take time with your child to chat about it all and help them along.  They have until Friday to complete it as follows:

Tuesday– Spend some time chatting about it

Wednesday – Start writing and filling in each section

Thursday – Complete the writing and colour it! (remember not to colour over the writing)

Take it into school Friday.  No need to worry about the ‘picture of me’.  We will use school photos for this section.

Thanks and enjoy!!

Apologies for not posting on here sooner.  I have been getting to know the pupils and finding my own feet having been away from St Francis NS for 3 years.

As you are aware, 1st class is currently residing in the school library on the 1st floor of the school.  We have a lovely classroom with fantastic views over the school grounds behind the main building and to the fields beyond.  In less than 2 weeks time however, we hope to move in to our brand new prefab, next to the 2nd class prefab.  The ground work has all been done and the prefab will be hoisted in to place next weekend.

Last Friday we had a Free Dress Day and a huge thank you to everyone who brought in a donation for the Geraldines GFC Mighty Marquee weekend.  As a class, we will be benefiting from in-school coaching later in the year from the Geraldines, and this fundraiser goes towards their coaching coats.

We enjoyed playtime together in class and here are some photos.


This page will be updated regularly and will contain important information regarding events in our classroom. Please keep an eye on it for any updates. We are a green school and to save paper we use this page to update parents rather than sending home notes all the time.

Thank you all very much for your co-operation.
