Confirmation Ceremonies 9th and 10th March 2018
Congratulations to all the children who were confirmed in Sallins on the 9th and 10th March. The three ceremonies were beautiful. We were so lucky to have Bishop Denis and Father Joe officiating at all of the ceremonies. The children were so reverent and invested in the Confirmations. As a school community we are very proud of these children and we are sure that their parents are especially so.
Many thanks to the children's choir, school staff and many members of the Sallins community for all their work in preparing for, and helping to celebrate the Confirmation in the parish.
Ceol le Chéile Concert in Alexandra College
Congratulations to all the pupils, past pupils and staff who played and danced in our school and in Alexandra College this week. Both events were a wonderful collaboration of culture and music, perfectly timed in the middle of Seachtain na Gaeilge.
It really was a treat for our primary school pupils to play music with secondary school pupils.
During this past week both Ms Kelly of Alexandra College and Mr Lanigan of Sallins N.S. stressed how the appreciation and love of music has the potential to be with us our entire lives and not just while we are at school.
Thanks to all parents and family members who supported the musicians and dancers.

Celebrating 1916 in 2016 artistically!
Mrs Scott and some 6th class pupils constructed the G.P.O. from recycled materials! Mr McDonnell's class produced beautifully framed pictures commemorating the Rising of 1916.
Seachtain na Gaeilge
In keeping with tradition musicians from Alexandra College visited us once again to help us celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge. This annual event brings together the students from our 4th, 5th and 6th classes along with the secondary school musicians for a festival of traditional and modern Irish music. The central theme this year was commemorating 1916 in 2016 style! And we certainly did that with the musicians from Alexandra College playing if front of our very own G.P.O.!!

ran in the school from Monday April 20th to Friday April 24th.
The active school committee organised a myriad of activities for the 'Active School Week'. These activities included a basketball challenge, a skipathon, tennis coaching, zumba dancing, dodgeball challenges, relay races, walk a mile, fitness classes, yoga and dancing. It seemed they even ordered the good weather for all the activities!!!!! The children all enjoyed being especially active and even homework was given an 'active twist'. Well done to everyone for taking part so enthusiastically.
