The little things are most worthwhile
A quiet word, a look, a smile,
A listening ear that’s quick to share
Another’s thoughts, another’s care…
Though sometimes they may seem quite small,
These little things mean most of all.
Kindness starts by being kind to yourself. Do you treat yourself kindly? Do you speak gently and kindly to yourself and take good care of yourself? Being friendly, generous, considerate and caring are words that are associated with kindness. We are going to look at a powerpoint all about kindness
We had Garda Barbara and Garda Padraig in to visit us today at assembly to speak to us about Stranger Dander. It is important not to speak to strangers and to always be aware of what a stranger may look like.
Prizes /Awards Communion Congratulations all the children from Room 17,18 and 11 who will be made their First Holy Communion in the church on Saturday the 19th of May . It was a very special sacrament to receive and we hope you all have a lovely day celebrating it with your family and friends. Thank you to Ms Mc Enroy, Ms Downes and Ms Crowley for preparing the children throughout the year and on the day. It was a very special day.
Scooting Well done to all the boys and girls from 1st and 2nd classes who took part in the Scooting Workshop. I heard you were all very good. I want to encourage as many children as possible to walk cycle or come on a scooter to school. Remember to stay safe on your journey to and from school and always wear your helmet.
Swimming Well done to all the boys and girls from the three first classes that are going swimming at the moment. Swimming is a really important life skill and it is something you will never forget to do once you learn. Keep up the fantastic work.

Mr Reidy Remember the ways we spoke about being kind to ourselves and to other people. Let’s all try hard today to do one kind thing for someone in our lives. Let’s spread some kindness in St. Declan’s.
