A Fond Farewell to Kay
Kay Whyte, our loyal and lovely Special Needs Assistant, finished working in Scoil Thomáis on Friday 14th February.
Kay has worked in the school for the past 15 years. She has worked with many pupils and teachers throughout the years and we will really miss her kind presence here in the school.
No matter what was going on in the class or in the school, Kay always had a smile and a gentle word for those in need. Kay's presence was a benefit to everyone who was lucky enough to be around her.
She will always be fondly remembered by pupils, parents and school staff for her gentle manner, kindness and good humour.
We wish her a long, healthy and happy retirement!
Slán go fóill Kay!
Safer Internet Day - February 11th
Ahead of Safer Internet Day on February 11th, we'd like to share this poster with our school community. We urge everyone to visit webwise.ie/parents for expert advice, support and resources.
Scoil Thomáis and the PA have also organised a talk for parents on the topic of Cyberbullying and Internet Safety with expert speaker Jeremy Padgen on Monday 10th February 2020 at 7.30 pm. This talk is relevant to all parents and it is important that as many parents as possible attend this talk, which will conclude by 9pm.
Parking will be available on the school grounds - come to the school via the Castleknock Vale entrance gate. We hope to see lots of parents attend this useful talk.
Good Luck to our Quiz Team!
Best of luck to our 6th Class Quiz team who will take part in the Community Credit Union Quiz tonight!
Room 16 Makes Boats!
Ms. Boland/Ms. Creighton’s class have been very busy experimenting with sinking and floating. We made lots of predictions before we carried out our experiments. Following on from our investigations, we designed our own boats that would float in water. We also investigated why ‘mentos’ reacts with diet coke and made a small volcano explosion in class. Lots of fun
