Amber Flag Noticeboard


Amber Flag Noticeboard

Mr Donovan took on the role of creating a themed noticeboard display each month to represent a different indicator of SHANARRI,

SHANARRI stands for Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible and Included. These are all indicators for successful well-being. Each month, we focus on a different indicator.

In October we looked at Safety - Road and Fire Safety and Things That Make Me Happy

For November the First Classes all looked at different ways of staying healthy, including eating healthily, getting enough rest/sleep, examining what healthy looks like in school and at home, as well as (importantly) how to wash their hands correctly.

Well done to all of the First Class children who worked so hard to design our beautiful display boards.

For the month of December the Senior Infants have been busy looking at all of their achievements. Ms O'Brien's class thought carefully about all of the things that they are really good at.Ms Meehan's class chose colours that reminded them of success and kindness and decorated a beautiful tree. Ms Harrington's children reflected on their great successes and drew them on trophies. Finally, Ms L. Cummins and her class shot for the stars and drew what they thought were their greatest achievements.

We are very proud of all the boys and girls in SS Peter and Paul's JNS, what a talented bunch!

The next indictator of SHANARRI is Nurture. Nurture means caring for and protecting someone or something as it grows. The second classes have been busy looking at this theme. They are exploring the concept by discussing the people that nurture us (our family, friends and teachers), the ways that we are nurtured at home (physically, emotionally and spiritually) and how we grow as people through this nurturing. Have a look at our display boards which the second classes have designed.

The Junior Infants were exploring the SHANARRI theme of being Active!
Ms Ní Mhaonaigh's and Mrs Adderley's class both looked at their favourite sports and the different types of activity that they like to engage in.
Ms Feeney's class coloured beautiful active pictures and discussed their favourite ones.
Mrs O' Connor's class were looking at how exercise impacts our bodies e.g. how our breathing changes.

Great work from all of our Active Infants
