We think you'll agree that our teachers and staff have done a fabulous job this year. They've kept the wonderful atmosphere of Greystones CNS alive during a challenging year. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the end of year gifts for all our teachers and support staff. We purchased gifts from many of local businesses in Greystones, some of which are owned by parents of children in our school.
Here's a selection of local businesses we bought gifts from:
The PTP were delighted to purchase some new Maths equipment for the school using money raised from our various fundraising efforts. Here's a few of the items the school has now added to their collection of Maths equipment:
On 4th March this year we celebrated World Book Day and while adults couldn't visit the classrooms this year, we had some amazing kids and family members send in recordings of themselves reading a variety of books for the classes.
As well as English, the kids heard Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Polish and Creole! It really is a fabulous day to celebrate and the kids equally loved dressing up as their favourite character from their favourite book.
We received another grant this year to purchase foreign language books for the school library. €300 worth of books were purchased through the local children's bookshop Half Way Up The Stairs so that we could support a local business in Covid times.
We can't wait to see all these new books in our new school library.
