Access to CBS Secondary School.

Posted on October 17th, 2014 in ** Newsletter by Mr. Gately  Tagged

The Board of Management of the CBS Secondary School has changed it’s enrolment policy so that boys wishing to enrol there from our school have the same access as boys from all other schools, including CBS Primary. This is a very welcome development and it is the final part of the process of our school going fully co-educational. The criteria on which pupils now gain access to CBS Secondary is as follows:

1. Brothers of current or past pupils of CBS Secondary School.

2.Sons of staff members of CBS Secondary School.

3. Sons of past pupils of CBS Secondary School.

4. All other applications received on or before the closing date for receipt of enrolments.

If you want any more information about enrolling your child into any Secondary School, please contact the school directly.

The Board of Management of The Mercy school asks that you pass this information on to anyone else who may be considering enrolling their child in our school.

Maths Week!

Posted on October 16th, 2014 in Ms. Griffin by Ms. Griffin

We love Maths in Room 13! We are always playing lots of Maths games, revising our tables (we are REALLY good at them) and solving riddles and puzzles. This week we spent a little extra time doing Maths activities. We even did a Maths Trail around the school.

Mercy’s All-Ireland Champions

Posted on October 3rd, 2014 in Latest News,Uncategorized by Mr. Gately  Tagged

3 past pupils of The Mercy School and current members of the 2014 Wexford Ladies All-Ireland winning team visited the school with their trophy. The whole school turned out in their Wexford colours to give the players, including our own Mary-Rose Kelly, Katie Redmond and Kellie Kearney a rousing welcome. The pupils, with ms Hughes on piano, sang a version of a famous Wexford song called “The Girls of Wexford”; they also sang “Kelly, The Boy From Killane” and our own Mercy School song. The players led by all-star and “Player of The Match” Mary-Rose talked about their hard work and the fact that they never gave up, despite losing in the final last year and they encouraged all the pupils to work hard and not to let setbacks stop them doing their best. Finally they went out onto our astro-turf pitch for a kick-around with our current school team. What a thrill for our players to be able to meet and play with their heroes. Mr Gately and Ms. Mc kiernan both agreed that several of the current team have the potential to represent Wexford in a few years time.

For the third year in a row our school garden has scooped the top Platinum award for schools in the Wexford in Bloom Awards 2014. This is an unprecedented achievement and it is a fitting award for all the hard work in setting up and maintaining the garden for the last 4 years. The award was presented by Mayor George Lawlor to pupils from the school accompanied by Ms. English and Ms Mc Kiernan. A special word of thanks goes to our Green School’s Committee and our parent volunteers, especially Senan O Reilly. For more details see  http://wexfordinbloom.com/awards-2014/

Posted on October 1st, 2014 in Uncategorized by Ms. Griffin

Dear Parents,

There are many educational websites out there.

The following three sites are very good:

This link will bring you directly onto a page that has a subject list on the left. There are many great games and activities on it of various levels. In general 4th class equates to Key Stage 2.

This is very useful for Science and Geography projects especially.

And finally the following site has many games on it too to help further your child’s literacy and numeracy skills.

The children in Room 1 bravely searched and successfully caught woodlouse, spiders, ants, slugs, worms, ladybirds, a butterfly and even a bee yesterday on a vigorous hunt in the school hedgerow and garden. No stone was left unturned in the process! They worked really well together with their partners and then passed around the bug containers to share their findings with each other before releasing them back into their habitats. Well done children!

The children had such fun holding the little animals, walking around to see the bigger animals and of course playing in the playgrounds. And the sun never stopped shining  – which always helps!!
