We are looking forward to raising awareness of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) Day tomorrow, 19th October. We will be hosting an information display in the Yew Room from 8.30 tomorrow morning - there will be videos, information leaflets, displays of work from some children and our very own SLT Neasa (who works specifically with the Birch Class) will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you there.
Please complete form if you wish to Audition for one of the 30 parts in Annie.
You must be in 3rd - 6th class.
Following the huge success of 'The Jungle Book' in 2017, we are delighted to announce that PETNS will be staging 'Annie' as our musical this year!
Although the show will not be until Term 3, auditions for lead roles in the musical will be taking place during school time on Friday October 19th. This is so we can get started on preparing songs and dances well in advance for rehearsals in Term 2.
If your child is in 3rd to 6th Class, we would like you to encourage them to audition as it is a valuable and beneficial opportunity. With over 30 roles to cast, there is a great chance of your child getting a role!
All names for auditions must be given to teachers by Wednesday October 17th.
We can't wait to see all the talent we know and love from the pupils in our school!
What is it?
This year Powerstown ETNS are participating in “The 2018 European Week of Sport.” Physical Activity will be celebrated in our school from 24th – 28th of September!
Why are we participating?
It is important that our pupils get 60 minutes of moderate physical activity per day. Although the school day is very short, we encourage our pupils to #beactive and believe that is strongly supports their mental well-being, and therefore enables them to reach their true academic potential!
So, next week, each class will participate in daily exercises! Please ensure that your child wears runners and appropriate clothing to school.
How are We Celebrating?
We are going to the Eiffel Tower!
As part of European Week of Sport and the #BeActive campaign the entire school is going to the Eiffel Tower!
It’s 778km away. To get there, each class are going to walk, jog or run 55km. This is 55 laps of our yard. This equates to just 10 laps of our yard per day!
There is a whiteboard and calculator on our P.E board and each class will add their km each day when they come in from yard. A great way to integrate Maths in our #BeActive campaign.
Classes are encouraged to put 0/55km on their class whiteboard and either add or take away until they have reached their 55km target!
#BeActive with Parkrun
We encourage you to #BeActive this weekend and join the local parkrun in Tyrrelstown Park (beside Le Chéile). It's a timed 2km fun run which starts at 9.30 suitable for children from 4-14 years old. Visit www.parkrun.ie/register/ to register.
Here is a step by step how to guide for signing up to and setting up Aladdin.
Peace Day Performance!
We would like to invite all families to attend our celebration of Peace Day 2018 with a performance in the Assembly Hall at 9am on Friday 21st September. Classes have been preparing songs and poems and are looking forward to performing for you. See you there!
