Some students from Red Class did a small study of the colours of Autumn. They gathered leaves and also studied leaves collected by staff showing the beautiful variety of colours that can appear on the trees at this time of year. Students then created their own piece of art using watercolour paints and some chose to also use the leaves collected.
We entered the above artworks into the Credit Union “Wonderful World’ Art competition and were delighted to hear some won prizes in the competition. Well done Reece, Eireann and Maja.
Each class took on the challenge from the newly formed Creative Commitee to create a scarecrow for our Halloween Fun day. Lots of really imaginative creations. The students loved walking around the school finding a new scarecrow at each door as well as some discoveries outside, where we had our annual parade.
There was also great excitement when the students spotted a new figure in Èilis’ office!!
For our Halloween decorations in Yellow Class, we made webs using glue sticks and glitter. We put our fine motor skills to good use threading legs on colourful spiders…we decided they are less scary that way! We’ve hung them up in our reading area, with lots of Halloween books to look at. We have also been learning the LAMH signs for “Incy Wincy Spider”…. It’s a Creepy Crawly Halloween in Yellow.

The purpose of the pilot is to put nursing supports in place to allow children with complex healthcare needs attend school.
The HSE Primary Care currently fund Pediatric Home Care Packages (PHCPs), through which preferred private healthcare providers deliver nursing care in the home environment to children with complex healthcare needs. Under a new Government pilot to support children with complex healthcare needs to attend school, it is proposed to extend the care hours delivered by PHCPs into the school setting, for those children already in receipt of 20 or more PHCP hours.
Many schools, in particular special schools, currently have nurses on site funded through a variety of arrangements. The pilot service will not displace existing nursing services or supports in schools.
The pilot will be led by the National Council for Special Education (NCSE). The pilot is to be evaluated and the outcome will inform the provision of nursing support for students with complex healthcare needs into the future.
Further guidance for schools and parents on the pilot programme, can be found on the Department of Education and NCSE website.
