November

'Aistear'
Learning through structured play was introduced to both the Infant classrooms this month. 
Junior Infants explored and learned about 'Space' and 'Space travel', while Senior Infants got to grips with 'The Garage' and the workings of cars!


The Archbishop's Visit
Pupils and staff of DNS were very excited when the Archbishop, Michael Jackson, came to open our two new rooms and our rejuvenated school library. The children sang beautifully and with enthusiasm and spoke in their own words of their delight at having these additional rooms (currently being used for learning support) and our new accessible and comfortable library area.
The Archbishop seemed content to be amongst us and remarked on the happy atmosphere that was evident in our school. This was boosted further when the Archbishop announced that an ice cream van would be arriving to distribute ice creams to one and all!
The Archbishop was happy to pose for photos and the PA provided tasty refreshments for the adult visitors and dignitaries.
It was a really lovely experience and an affirmation of the hard work that goes on in Delgany National School.


Fire Drill
We had lots (and lots) of Fire Drill practice during November but the safety of everyone in Delgany National School is paramount so no-one objected to swiftly and quietly exiting the building and congregating in the school car park for roll call (even in the rain!)

Mounted Gardaí
Pupils from 2nd and 3rd classes were lucky enough to meet with the mounted Gardaí. They told us about the horses' daily routines and explained how important they are. All the horses have Irish names and they live at Áras an Uachtarán! Ms Kerr got to sit on the fabulous Ruairí!



Parent/Teacher Consultations 
Parent/Teacher Consultations took place on 21st, 22nd and 23rd of this month and while tiring for everyone they are always a very fruitful exercise giving both teachers and parents a formal opportunity to discuss children's progress to date. Parents are reminded that class teachers are always available for meetings at any other time by appointment through the office.
