World Book Day 2020


We had a brilliant celebration of World Book Day on Thursday 5th March, with a special Buddy Reading session on the WBD theme of "Sharing Stories", and a fantastic Fashion Show of costumes inspired by the children's favourite book characters. Once again, the children at St Laurence's excelled themselves - many thanks to parents for helping out with costumes - we were so impressed with the effort that went into creating their character's looks! Special shout-outs to Fantastic Mr. Fox (aka Joe Janota), the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter (Lena and Vanja Kosijer) and the Anne of Green Gables/Despereaux Duo (Maebh and Orla Geoghegan) .

Our world of book characters...........  

 Can you name them all????

Wellbeing Week 2020

Pupils at St. Laurence's kicked off the new year with a week-long focus on Wellbeing. There was lots of discussion about how we can be kind to ourselves and to others, and the children took part in activities geared towards mental and physical wellness. We all went on a Mindful Walk through the Phoenix park, taking in the beautiful nature all around us through our five senses. We made a school mandala to represent the importance of calmness, concentration and balance - you can see the pictures below. Senior room pupils thought about how words can inspire and uplift us, and created some "Positive Graffiti" messages for the bathrooms. Junior room pupils learned the song "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and treated us all to their own Happy Dances - click on the video and be uplifted too!

St Laurence's goes 'paperless'.........

In an effort to cut down on the amount of paper and ink used, we have introduced some new initiatives here at the school. Firstly, with the much appreciated agreement of parents, we will from now on be issuing permission slips and school information via email. We appreciate it will take effort on parents' part to check for emails and reply but we are delighted with your co-operation. 

In addition, we have set up a new 'Ink-free' News Section on our website. Here you will be able to find all the up to date news on current and future happenings at the school. Do take the time to check in from time to time!! Ink-Free News
