The children in the Junior & Middle room enjoying their Easter Egg Hunt

The children enjoyed taking part in "Odd Sock Day" again this year in a fundraiser for Down Syndrome Ireland. Cloonliffen National school was one of the first schools to support the campaign last year. It was a great success and we were extremely happy to raise awareness of the great work done by the Association.


November was Friendship / Anti-bullying month in Cloonliffen NS. Through our lessons, artwork & songs the children learned the characteristics of a ‘good friend’ and the importance of accepting and including others.
We also worked on  the theme of bullying through our SPHE lessons and the HSE ‘Headbombz’ programme. The children worked in groups using role play to explore what bullying is , the different types of bullying and what to do if we they are being bullied or witness other being bullied.
We ended the month with some treats for working hard together and some awards for ‘ Random Acts of Kindness’ witnessed by the school community throughout the month. Although Friendship month is over we hope the children keep up the good work for the rest of the year !

Hope you enjoy a few pictures of the wonderful show the children put on today.  Many thanks to all who came and we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A wonderful display of our Christmas Art around the school. May we take this opportunity to wish you all a
Merry Christmas !
