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.
College Appreciation Week.
Colaiste Bride welcomed students from the senior end of Scoil Íde to their school during College Appreciation Week. 2nd years for Colaiste Bride presented to the Scoil Íde students different courses that one could pursue at third level. Each student received a wealth of information about various career paths, necessary requirements for different college courses and employment opportunities. It was extremely informative and our pupils are thinking about the different subjects they would like to pick for second level and possible courses for third level.
Thanks to Colaiste Bride for organising the event.
We celebrated Halloween on October 24th in Scoil Íde. All children and teachers had great fun dressing up and enjoyed being in role as other characters. Ms. Dempsey especially enjoyed directing the traffic. We displayed our costumes at assembly and there were certainly some spooky characters about. We finished off assembly by the whole school performing some zumba! Happy Halloween everyone and remember be safe.
More pictures from our Halloween antics can be viewed here.
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.
Annual School Walk.
We all set off on our annual walk on Wednesday 1st October. 1st to 6th class walked to Corkagh Park and took in the beautiful views. We even had time to stop in the playground on our way back. The infants trekked down around the convent.
Thanks to everyone who sent in sponsorship. Every little helps!
Maths Week October 2014
Maths Week Ireland promotes, awareness, appreciation and understanding of maths through a huge variety of events and activities.
Here in Scoil Íde we got involved by celebrating maths all around us. Classes paired up for activites, we played maths games on the yard and some classes went on trails. Each day we listened to a maths riddle on the intercom and the sharp problem solvers received prizes.
Pictures from activities can be found here.
We realise how much fun maths can be and enjoyed the different activities each day. We intend to keep up the variety of activites incorporated as active maths is so much fun.
