Over the last few months Mr. Moloney’s pupils have been working very hard on their JEP project.  After much discussion and pitching their ideas to Dragon’s Den it was decided to produce a cookbook.  The pupils busied themselves collecting recipes from teachers, celebrities, politicians and family members.  We have recipes from Neven Maguire,   Enda Kenny,  Michael Healy-Rae, Joe Duffy, some Kerry footballers, Alan Quinlan , to name but a few.

The pupils had their showcase day on Friday, 11th March.  What was evident from their showcase presentation was the impact the programme has had on the pupils personal development, confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem. The pupils had a hands-on look at the world of business, the various challenges and pitfalls and how to overcome these problems by working together as a team.  The many strands of the primary school curriculum found expression through the various skills needed to bring a fledgling idea to final fruition.

Many thanks to , Fr. Patsy Lynch, School Chaplain, Garda Irene Riordan Community Garda, Colm Cooper,  the many people who attended and to the very many proud parents, grandparents and friends who were in attendance at the Showcase morning making it a very memorable occasion for the pupils.

Cookbooks are on sale from the school at a cost of €6 each or two for €10.

“We think we have some really interesting recipes and we would like to thank all those who contributed and all those who helped along the way”, said Mr. Moloney.

Sensory Room

Callum O' Leary, Senior Infants along with some classmates cut the ribbon on our new Sensory Room on 23/05/2017.  This followed many months of hard work and preparation by all involved but most especially Ms. Anne Marie Allen, Special Needs Assistant, whose drive and enthusiasm made it all possible.   The incorporation of a sensory room into the school's timetable adds a very important dimension to the school's provision for pupils with special needs.  Many schools are now beginning to recognise the particular sensory challenges faced by children who are on the autism spectrum or who have been diagnosed with sensory processing disorder or sensory integration disorder.  Sensory rooms are designed to "both calm  and stimulate the senses" in children with special needs.

The room is designed to remove distractions and uses special lighting, fiber optics and bubbles to stimulate different parts of the brain and help children to focus.

COUNTY  FINAL!

The county final was played on May 3rd in Tralee.  Holy Family's first game was against Moyderwell, which they won 6 - 2.  Game two was against Scoil Iognaid Rís, Dingle and again Holy Family had a win of 7 - 3.

The final was against St. John's, Kenmare!  This was a closely contested game with both sides scoring 2 goals each leading to extra time. After extra time the teams still couldn't be separated leading to a penalty shoot out.  Unfortunately, Kenmare emerged victorious by just one goal.  We congratulate our boys on their fantastic efforts and their graciousness in defeat and we also congratulate Kenmare on their win.
