You, your children, your families and friends across the world can enjoy a little window into the life of the school and see pictures and read news about the children.

September to October was a fantastic term. The children in P3 are well settled and enjoying all of the learning and activities to date.

Highlights of the term had to be our Autumn Assembly and the Hallowe'en Dress Up Day!

 

November to December is always a really busy term for the children with so many exciting events to prepare for and look forward to!

This year, the children in P3 and P4 will perform at Christmas instead of during a show in the Spring term. So very soon the children will be learning Christmas Songs from countries around the world - like Christmas Day on the Beach, all the way from Australia. We will also be preparing for the annual Carol Service (P1-7) in St Matthew's Church - a special celebration for the whole parish to come and enjoy!

Catholic Schools’ Week 2019 Celebrated in

St Matthew’s Primary School and Nursery

 

Catholic Schools’ Week 2019 will run from 28th January to 1st February 2019. The theme for Catholic Schools’ Week this year is Catholic Schools: Celebrating the Work of Our Local Catholic Schools.

 

As Irish society changes, it is important that we reflect on the unique contribution of Catholic schools to our collective goal of education. Each Catholic school shares an ethos that is inclusive, welcoming and vibrant. Each school works towards a vision of each student as made in the likeness and image of God (imago Dei). This means that we work towards helping each child, irrespective of background, ethnicity or creed, reach their full potential academically, spiritually and socially. To be in the likeness and image of God means that we have the capacity to truly care for ourselves, each other and the

environment around us.

 

While each Catholic school shares this profound commitment to this vision, every school does this differently. Each school is influenced by the community it serves; be it large urban schools, small rural schools, schools with a wide variety of ethnicities and every school in between. For this reason, every Catholic school works in a unique and distinctive manner in educating each child to holistically develop their talent, skills and potential.

 

Saint Paul writes in his first letter to the Corinthians; For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.Each Catholic school is a vital member of the one community which is called to work towards the Kingdom of God. Each Catholic

school contributes to this mission in a unique way. This year, we are delighted to welcome you to celebrate the unique contribution and work of our own school and Nursery – St Matthew’s. Our Primary Three children will look forward to presenting to you our dramatization of St Patrick!

 

We hope you enjoy sharing in our Catholic Schools’ Week celebrations!

Mrs O' Neill
