Now that the new school is up and running, we can finally turn our attention to the GCNS library. A team of parents are working with Ms. McDonagh on the new school library and thanks to the generosity of parents, local libraries, and the community at large (via zero waste Greystones) the school has amassed over 2,000 books to get our library off the ground. The children in the school have already chosen a woodland theme and a design plan is currently being finalised. There is still a lot of work ahead but with the continued support of the parent body and community at large, the kids can hopefully enjoy their new library space by the end of the school year.
Thanks to everyone who donated Christmas decorations to the school. The children and staff created a fabulous festive atmosphere throughout the school with all your donations. We even had a financial donation from educate.ie to purchase decorations.
Back in November the school asked the PTP to purchase a set of 16 iPads for use by the children. These were purchased at a cost of €7,200. Thanks to Mr. Cheetham and Ms. Sheekey, they are now up and running and the children are beginning to use them in class.
