This year we participated in the Bí Gnóthach project sponsored by the Local Enterprise Office with South Dublin County Council. We made Candy Cane Reindeer, Reindeer food, Pine Cone Reindeer decorations and Pine Cone Christmas Decorations. We sold them all on the 16 th of December during a ‘Sale Day’ to all the classes and the teachers. On the 21st of December we sold them after the Junior Infants Play to the parents and grandparents. It took lots of work to organise and make all the things. We had to do our marketing, make posters and fliers to advertise, we had to come up with a ‘jingle’ for the intercom and we had to make all of the products. It was really hard work but we had good fun, and we had lots of happy customers :o) We are not sure of the exact figure yet but we know we made about €400 profit. We have to check our receipts and pay our bills and then we will know for sure!! We also have to decide what to spend the money on!!!! We will keep you updated! A special thanks to the Parents Association for sponsoring us €100 to help us get started, and to the mammies and teachers for helping us with the hot glue gun!!!
We'd all great fun dressing up for Halloween on October 28th. There were some very scary characters in school that day.

Annual School Walk.
We all set off on our annual walk on Wednesday 5th 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!
Proclamation Day - March 15th 2016.
The Government declared Tuesday March 15th as Proclamation Day, the centrepiece of celebrations of 1916 for schools. We received our flag from the Defence Forces in September 2015 & we raised it on Tuesday March 15th 2016.
This was a solemn & respectful occasion for our school community, in remembrance of the events of Easter 1916. The children of the Proclamation committee of Scoil Íde have written a 2016 proclamation, which was read for the first time after the flag was raised. To coincide with the celebrations each class performed songs, poems and musical displays for parents. 5th class performed a play which depicted the events from 1916.
