Principal’s Desk

September. 2022

Welcome to the September edition of our school newsletter. Class work and after-school curricular activities are now in full swing in St. Pat’s. It is great to see our pupils so enthusiastic and engaged in their school work and extracurricular activities. We have welcomed lots of new students to our school and hope that they have settled in well and are enjoying all that St. Pat’s has to offer.

Well done to the boys and girls who participated in the Galway Primary Schools Cross Country Championship in Renmore. Thank you to Ms. O’Doherty & Ms. Codyre for preparing our athletes. It was a great experience for them and St. Pat’s is very proud of all who took part.

We held a ceremony to raise our Green Flag for Water. Mr Conboy and the pupils on the Green School Committee worked very hard over the past couple of years to conserve water in our school and to educate pupils on how to prevent wasting water at home also. The committee used the Picker Pals Programme to help them in cleaning up the canals, rivers and beaches near St. Pat’s. Well done to all involved.

We have lots more planned for the coming months including trips to the City Library and to events in Baboró International Arts Festival for Children, setting up our new Student Council & beginning engagement on our Creative Schools Programme with the help of local artist, Dee Deegan.

Thank you to all of our fantastic staff for a great team effort as always.

Kind regards,
Ríona Donoghue
