Skipping Workshop September 2014.
All children from Junior to 6th Class took part in skipping workshops recently. They got the chance to learn individual and partner skills, double dutch and traditional long rope games and as the students increased in age, so the lessons become more complex and challenging.
Everyone really enjoyed the two days and the skills witnessed at the whole school demonstration were very impressive. Well done everyone!

Army Number One Band.
On Thursday 11th of September we were honoured to welcome the Irish Army Band to our hall.
The No. 1 Band has performed at major ceremonial occasions, including the Presidential Inaugurations, appointments of Ambassadors and the provision of musical support for State visits to Ireland by foreign Heads of State and high profile State Engagements such as The National Day of Commemoration.
The band entertained us with wonderful music and introduced members of the band and their instruments us. They had instruments from the brass, wind and percussion families. Everyone enjoyed the performance and had a great time clapping and dancing along. We would like to thank all members of the band for the wonderful performance.
Niamh from the Fairy Door Company recently visited Scoil Ide to deliver some magical fairy doors. Niamh, a past pupil explained all about the magical fairies and explained to the children all they must do is 'believe'! We look forward to hearing all the stories from the fairies in Scoil Ide over the coming months.
Thanks to Niamh for taking time out for the visit and for the beautfiul doors.
