Walk on Wednesday-May 26th

Sincere thanks to all the families for making such a big effort to Walk on Wednesday! We had 341 pupils in total who walked, cycled or scooted to school which is a fantastic achievement. I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful sunshine, fresh air, exercise & time to talk on your journey to school.

Well Done!

We are very proud of our 6th class pupils Sarah Larkin, Fiona Duda, Weronika Wasilak, Mia Gately and Irena Gabarova who were winners in Roscommon Community College's recent 'Women in STEM' competition.

Sarah won the 'Individual International Female' category for her project on Mamie Phipps Clark, and Fiona, Weronika, Mia and Irena won the 'Irish Female Group Project' for their poster project on Susan McKenna Lawlor. 

A big 'Well Done!' to all of you!

Return to School Form

Any child returning to school after an absence of one or more days needs to have a completed 'Return to Education Form', filled out by their parent. You can fill in the form online and email it to your child's teacher. Alternatively you can print it off, fill it in and send it into school with your child. You can download the form here.

All of the children in St. Comán's Wood N.S. brought a birch or a hazel tree home with them on Friday as part of a new initiative. We hope our children have enjoyed getting out into their gardens this weekend and planting their trees. For more information click here and watch the video below. Check out our Twitter and Facebook pages to see pictures of our pupils planting their trees!

We give every school child a native Irish Woodland Tree. The tree has been sponsored by Variety Ireland, a children's charity and Sean Mulryan of Ballymore properties. Schoolchildren across the county of Roscommon in Ireland will plant 7,500 trees in an eco-initiative that will play a vital part in helping to protect local water sources, enhance biodiversity and capture carbon. The community initiative is also intended to inspire the next generation to think green.

Welcome Back!

We were delighted to welcome back our Junior Infant - 2nd Class pupils this week. They joined the children in Mr. Morelli's and Ms. Maher's classes, who had returned to in-school education last week. It was lovely to have the children back and to see their happy, smiling faces again. We look forward, with hope, to our 3rd - 6th classes returning on the 15th March. Well done to all of our pupils for working hard and engaging with your school work from home. We know it hasn't been easy and we are very proud of you all!

Ms. Killeen's Senior Infants are happy to be back at school!
