WELCOME TO OUR
Scoil Íde is a Presentation Girls' Primary School with boys in the junior classes, We are a Catholic School, founded in 1969. We are located in Clondalkin village approximately 15km from Dublin city centre.
We have been very busy in recently in Scoil Ide!
The sacraments of Confirmation and Communion are both over and all children got on extremely well. All classes are gearing up for the end of the year and are enjoying their school tours. We will close on Friday 27th of June at 12.00. 1st class boys and 6th class girls will be leaving us and we will celebrate their graduation from Scoil Ide at our end of year mass at 11.30 on Wednesday 25th of April. On the same day we will also have our end of year plays.
On Wednesday 9th April we celebrated our first ever Intercultural Day in Scoil Íde. Scoil Íde is comprised of children that have links with almost 20 different countries around the world. We celebrated the richness of diversity that is in our school through song, dance, poetry, art and project work. We held a parade and a variety concert for parents, children and staff to enjoy. More pictures can be viewed here.
We are well settled into our new building now and we are delighted with the results. The new Principal's office is in the new building, along with two learning support rooms, 4th, 5th and 6th classrooms. We have a new main entrance, near the new building which has an intercom connected to the Principal's office so if there is no answer from the Secretary,
We now also have new play equipment on our yard, new bike racks and a wonderful soft furnished surface to play on. Have a browse through some of our pictures!
Our camogie team have been going from strength to strength over the last few months training hard everyweek. They enjoyed their first match recently against a school in Lucan. Pictured on the right are some action shots kindly taken by one of the player's father.
Seachtain na Gaeilge
We celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge recently. Children dressed up for our Lá Glas. We held an assembly where each class performed a song or dance as gaeilge. Each class participated in different activites from making Shamrock Shakes to Trath na gCeist. All classes came together to celebrate with a Céilí Mór on the yard. Click here for more pictures.
Challenge to Change:
Challenge to Change is a development education project aimed at young people
attending Presentation primary and post-primary schools. The vision of the project is driven by the Presentation charism and ethos which
embraces the challenge of working with those who are marginalised and excluded, for
whatever reason. Justice, human rights, sustainability and promoting right
relationships are central to the Presentation mission. This year in Scoil Ide we focused our attention to Intercultural Education and we connected with people through cultures. We held an Intercultural Day in April, which the whole school body got involved in. We presented our project at the annual Challenge to Change Seminar in Kilkenny on May 8th. 6th class had the honour of opening the ceremony by performing a traditional welcome Nigerian dance accompanied by drumming and chanting. More pictures from the day can be viewed here.
Having acheived our 3rd Green Flag, we have commenced working towards our 4th Green Flag To read more information click here!
