The Healthy Heroes Lunch Club is a lunchtime club for pupils who set up lunchtime activities for their classmates and the younger classes. During lunch, the club meets to eat together and talk about nutrition informally through teacher led discussion. The children then take over to run the activities building on those suggested and developing their own club games.
This programme will help to encourage children to change their eating habits, to educate them about nutrition and boost their activity levels at lunchtime, all whilst having lots of fun.
By involving children in the Healthy Heroes Lunch Club, it ensures that they will learn lots about nutrition and the importance of staying active, and we hope that they share their excitement and vital nutritional messages with their families and friends.
The CAPP programme (Stay Safe) is a primary school based approach to the prevention of child abuse. The aim of the programme is to reduce vulnerability to child abuse and bullying through the provision of a personal safety education programme for children at primary school level, continuing professional development for teachers, training for Boards of Management and information sessions for parents.
The Stay Safe programme itself is a personal safety skills programme designed for use with primary school children from Junior Infants through to 6th class. The programme seeks to enhance children’s self-protective skills by participation in lessons on safe and unsafe situations, bullying, inappropriate touch, secrets, telling and stranger danger.
The programme aims to give children the skills necessary to enable them to recognise and resist abuse/victimisation and teaches them that they should always tell (an adult that can help) about any situation which they find unsafe, upsetting, threatening, dangerous or abusive.

We celebrated Engineers Week in our school by engaging in a number of Engineering activities. We looked at a power point of the fairy tale Rapunzel and each group created a tower that Rapunzel lived in where she could easily go in and out of it, unlike the one in the fairy-tale.
We also worked with Lego Education during the week. The Senior room created a motorised vehicle using lego. It was really exciting.
