World Book Day 2019
We are getting ready here in St Oliver’s school for World Book Day. We will be celebrating one of favourite stories ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. Stay tuned for all the photos and updates from the day.
Rory Murphy, of Murphy’s Garden Centre kindly sponsored a donation of flowers to the school. All the children participated in planting the flowers, and they have really made the school look its best. He kindly posed for a few photos with some of our mini-gardeners, and a thank you card, which was made by the children, was presented to him. Rory also teaches yoga as an extra curricular activity to the children at school, and he is very popular among the children! Thank you Murphy’s Garden Centre!
VHI Ladies Mini Marathon
Some members of staff took part in the ladies mini marathon in Dublin over the June bank holiday weekend. They kindly raised funds for the school. Thanks to the girls and to everyone who supported them. Well done ladies, you did the school proud!
School Fun Run
St. Oliver’s Annual Fun Run took place in April, and was yet again a big success. Thank you to everyone who took part on the day, helped out behind the scenes and contributed to the fundraiser. A grand total of €8853.90 was raised. Your support is greatly appreciated. From all the children, staff, and greater St. Oliver’s community, thank you!
Cake Sale Proceeds
Presentation Primary School kindly raised €700 in their cake sale. They presented the money to St. Oliver’s on Thursday April 26th. The school have purchased the next set of TEACCH boxes. These are work task boxes that help teach independence and other skills to students with special needs and autism. This is a huge boost to the school, and we are extremely grateful to the students and teachers in the Presentation for their kind donation.
Fundraiser in aid of St. Oliver’s
In February, Corofin Foróige kindly fund-raised for St. Oliver’s and raised €632 from the sale of St. Brigid’s crosses.
Children participating in the ASDAN programme had their work presented to ASDAN moderators in Dublin on Monday March 12th 2018. We look forward to presenting all our children with certificates to acknowledge their wonderful work at the end of the school year.
Presentation Primary School Tuam are hosting a Cake Sale on Friday, 16th March 2018 between 9am – 12noon and some of the proceeds are for St. Oliver’s Special School. We hope to purchase a new set of TEACCH Boxes with the money. All parents, family and friends of children in St. Oliver’s Special School are invited to attend.
