Garda Gavin Visits Junior Infants

Monday 14th May, was a very exciting day in Rooms 1, 2 and 10. Garda Gavin Duffy, from Clondalkin Garda Station, came to visit all the boys and girls in Junior Infants. Junior Infants had been learning about People Who Help Us earlier in the year, so it was a real treat to meet Garda Gavin. The children asked him all about his day-to-day work. The boys and girls were lucky enough to try on some parts of Garda Gavin's unifrom, check out his Garda car and even listen to the siren in the car pealing loudly!
The highlight of the visit was when Garda Gavin handcuffed Ms. Alvey and Ms. Merrins together!! Thankfully, they were soon released and returned to their students.

Junior Road Safety Officers

Here in Scoil Íde we are privileged and excited to announce that we have two Junior Road Safety Officers in our school. Rosie and Codie from 6th cladd have been appointed as JRSO's for Scoil Íde. We conducted an interview with the girl so they could tell us all about what being a JRSO means.

What is a JRSO?
A Junior Road Safety Officer is someone that makes sure students in our school are being safe on the road,gives talks at assembly and updates the Junior Road Safety Officer notice board.

How did you hear about it?
We heard about it from the South Dublin County Council website.

What are you doing at the moment in our school?
We are focusing on the importance of hi-visability when traveling on the road.

What is the next task you must do?
We must explain the inportance of wearing your seatbelt when you are in a moving veichle.

Do you think this is an important role?
Yes because people need to be aware of the fact that the roads can be extremely dangerous.

Here are some of the jobs we do:
-Encourage everyone in the school to think about Road Safety for the year.
-Provide information to our school, either in assembly, in each class, or give out leaftlets/infromation about Road Safety.
-Work as a team and are in charge of updating and arranging a Road Safety Notice board to display leaflets, posters and class work.
-Encourage the school to pass information on to friends, parents and family in a sensible and effective way.

All of us here at Scoil Íde want to congratulate Rosie and Codie and we wish them the very best of luck with their new roles.

World Down Syndrome Day

World Down Syndrom Day took place on March 21st. It is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.

Here in Scoil Íde we are very lucky to have Robyn who has a brother who has Down Syndrome to tell us all about Down Syndrome and WDSD. As part of WDSD 2018, 50 mums and 50 children came together to take part in a carpool karaoke lip sync video to Christina Perri's multi-platinum selling track, "A Thousand Years". Robyn has learned to sign along to the song. She is really proud of this and of her brother. Robyn visited some of the classes to tell us all about Down Syndrome and to teach us how to sign along to the chorus of "A Thousand Years". We are very proud of Robyn and thank her and her family for sharing this wonderful event with us.

Grandparents Day 2018

Each year as part of Catholic Schools Week a special day is set aside to celebrate our Grandparents and all they do for us. This year Grandparents Day took place on Wednesday 31st January 2018. Some classes in the school invited their Garndparents into their classrooms as guest speakers to discuss their lives, loves and passions in life. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the Grandparents who visited our school and we extend a warm hand of friendship to all the Grandparents of Scoil Ide.

Not only do we get up and move in our classrooms but every Friday, from now until the end of Februray, we will be doing 10@10 on the yard as a whole school.
