Welcome to the website for Holy Rosary Primary School.

Welcome

Welcome to Holy Rosary Primary School’s website. We hope this site will give you an insight into the busy and bustling hive of activity that is Holy Rosary Primary School.

In our school we want to create a happy, caring school where young people are encouraged to maximise their potential.

We would like to thank all the parents and teachers who volunteer to give our children the widest educational experience possible and help make Holy Rosary Primary School great!


Join our Choir for Adults

Our choir for adults starts back up this Friday at 9.30-10.30 in the Parents’ Room. Parents/guardians/grandparents and all adult members of the local community are most welcome. We are a very casual and informal choir singing loads of different types of songs from This Is Me from the Greatest Showman to California Dreamin’ by The Mamas and the Papas and we are open to any and all suggestions! There are no auditions, solos or sheet music, it’s just a lot of singing and fun. If you would like more information or you would like to come along on Friday to give it a go call or text Jessica Carthy on 086 0276666.

Halloween Bake-Off

The student council organized a wonderful Halloween Bake-Off for the students from 3rd-6th class. Huge compliments to ALL the children who brought in spooktacular treats. The judging was a tough job but we narrowed it down to the finalists below. Our winner was Angelina from Mr O’Donoghue’s 6th class so huge congratulations to her and to all who entered.


Christmas Shoebox Appeal

It’s that time of year again when we are launching the Christmas Shoebox Appeal. The closing date for the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal is November 4th 2019. Please give your completed shoebox to your child’s teacher on or before that date. The children should have received the leaflets with all the information. Please find attached a poster of ideas of what to include and what to avoid. You will find lots of information about what to include and where the shoeboxes go on www.teamhope.ie. Thank you to everybody who has supported this worthwhile cause in the past. Last year we sent away 164 shoeboxes and we’re aiming even higher this year!

Sensory Garden

We are very lucky here in Holy Rosary to have fabulous school grounds. We have a full sized pitch or “the field” as it’s known, a biodiversity garden, a pond, a wormery, a fairy garden and behind the school we have a sensory garden, a playground and an outdoor classroom.

There is a lot of work to maintain the various gardens and we recently had a group of volunteer parents very kindly give us a morning of their time to weed our sensory garden. As you can see by the before and after pictures they did an amazing job!

We got an extremely generous donation of bark for the garden so we we will be looking for more volunteers soon. Keep an eye out for an email or text. Thanks again to our fantastic volunteers and we hope to see more of you soon.

If you would like to get involved or have any questions please contact Jessica Carthy on 0860276666.
