First and Second Class June Assembly

Mr Kearins

Welcome here today to our last assembly for the year. First of all I want to say thank you to everyone in St. Declan’s ….. the staff, the parents and of course all of you for making me feel so welcome during my first year here as principal. I’m so happy to be a part of St. Declan’s school community and I hope we have lots of good years ahead. We remember all the good times we had this year with our teachers and friends in St. Declan’s. We look forward to our Summer holidays spent with our families and to coming back refreshed and relaxed for a new school year in September.

Active School’s Week 

Active School’s Week was really successful. Well done to all children who were involved in different activities during the week. I know all 1st and 2nd classes took part in dancing classes with Yas from Aniss Stage School. I hope you all enjoyed Sports Day. Our skipping workshop was a huge success last week with Mark from SkipNrope. I hope you will all be practising your skills over the Summer. Well done to Emmie, Kenzo, Lucy, Tyler, Jude, Tori , Gabriela and Samara who showcased their skills during the workshop. Thank you to Mr Farrell for organising the week of events for us.

Dec’s got talent

We were all very impressed with the talent at our show last week. I really enjoyed being involved and judging the competition. Everyone who took part was excellent and I want to say a huge well done to them for putting in so much work preparing for the event. In particular well done to Ethan and Alannah who were the youngest competitors in the event.

We are so lucky to have so many talented children in St. Declan’s. Huge congratulations to Ethan and Patrick on winning the Upcoming Act 2019. What an achievement. Thank you to Ms O’Halloran and Mr Farrell for organising the show.
