In Newtown NS we are collecting for the Aldi Play Rugby Sticker Promotion, to be in with a chance to win prizes for our school. We have almost filled one poster already! The deadline to complete the posters is the 24th April.
Third and fourth class are currently enjoying their swimming lessons. Thank you to parent volunteers accompanying pupils and teacher each week, the Parent Association for subsidising the bus and parents for paying for this activity.
This year third and fourth class have been learning chess with Ms. Corr. They had the opportunity to attend a chess tournament in the local area on Tuesday 28th January. At this tournament the children got the chance to play against pupils from different schools. They had great fun on this day out and learned many new techniques and ideas from playing against others.
On Friday 20th December fifth and sixth class held a Christmas Fair for pupils in school. They asked children to bring in donations of toys, books, etc. to sell at the fair and donated all money raised to the ISPCA. We would like to thank everyone for supporting this annual Christmas fair.
