Be a good sport week!

We hope children enjoy a chance to participate in sports activities out of doors this week. We would love to be meeting families in Sallyglen tomorrow (our Be a Good Sport Day date) but that is not possible. We appreciate remaining healthy and well enough to get outdoors, enjoy fresh (or humid?!) air, walk, cycle, explore our environment. We thank Southside Sports and Sligo Education Centre for sharing ideas and videos for virtual Be a Good Sport Day.

We continue to feel the loss of our time together in classrooms, yards, staffroom, Sallyglen and school trips. However, we are grateful for technologies that enable us to keep connecting. Below are times and dates of Zoom meetings for those who are free to attend.
