'Hallowe'en 2019' video

Posted by on in The Faythe School
FaceBook  Twitter  

As I said in last Friday evening's post there was great disappointment in the school when the weather wiped out the Hallowe'en Walk for 2019. However the 'Fashion Parade' gave a little compensation and there was a great 'buzz' around the school. It also gave me a great opportunity for a suitably 'cheesey' introduction to the video!!!.

You'll see that the children's outfits were fabulous and repeated thanks to all the adults at home and in school who joined in with their usual flair and imagination on the outfit front.

The generosity and support of the wider Faythe School community continues to astound me and I repeat my five thousand two hundred and thirty four 'thank yous' to all who contributed and collected.

Enjoy the video and click here if you don't see a thumbnail below!

While there was disappointment today in the school with the weather wiping out the Hallowe'en Walk for 2019 nonetheless there was great excitement in the school for the day.

As usual the childrens' outfits were fabulous and I look forward to posting the videos over the holiday week for you all to enjoy. Particular thanks to all the adults in the school who joined in with their usual flair and imagination although the logic behind some of their outfits defied 'Hallowe'en' or 'Sciencey' logic!!!!

Every year the generosity of the wider Faythe School community astounds me and the very real community support we have always enjoyed here was shown in the magnificent €5,234 collected to date.

On behalf of all in the school I would like to offer five thousand two hundred and thirty four 'thank yous' to all who contributed and collected.

It is true - when it's agin ye....it is agin ye!!

There is a very poor forecast for all day tomorrow and Komeer has been problematic for the past two days.......so even getting this message out will not be easy!!!!

Currently it looks like the Walk will not take place but as in previous years when the weather played havoc with school events we will try our very best to work around it.

So as not to take from the children's fun we will have two 'Hallowe'en Parades' in the Hall so all the children will get to see their outfits.

Faythe School Parents' Book Club

Posted by on in Newsletters

The Faythe School Parents' Book Club reviewed the book 'The Choice' by Edith Eger this month.

This book is a true story of how Edith Eger survived against all odds the harrowing experience of despair and cruelty in the concentration camps during WW11.

Edith 'chose' to live a meaningful life to heal herself rather than become consumed by hatred and despair. She became a world renowned psychologist and works with people struggling to overcome traumatic events in their lives.

It is a difficult book to read at times but also so inspiring and empowering. Her message inspires us to choose our own path in life  in terms of our choices, wellbeing and emotions.

Brilliant double for Rianna!!! test

Posted by on in Uncategorized

Pride of Wexford, and Faythe past pupil, Rianna Jarrett celebrated a brilliant personal double last night when Ireland beat Ukraine in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers. In front of a packed Tallaght Stadium Rianna celebrated her first 'senior international goal' before being awarded 'Player of the Match' following an action packed performance that saw her play a huge part in all of Ireland's three goals.

There is a super picture of Rianna in the school's Breakfast Room showing her wheel away in celebration when she scored her first international goal as an Under 15 versus Italy. This picture was unveiled when Rianna returned to the school to raise one of the school's 'Active Flags' in 2012!.....

John F. will have to make more room on the wall as we watch Rianna's progress with great pride!

All in the school were thrilled to hear the news that we had two winners in the 'Viking Colouring Competition' to mark Wexford's inaugural 'Viking Fire Festival' which takes place today (Saturday 28th September 2019) on Wexford Quay.

Kyle Gordon (from Ms. Murphy's 2nd Class) won a Family Pass for 2 Adults and 3 Children to the Irish National Heritage Park at Ferrycarrig for his work while Katie Dryburgh (from Ms. Tierney's 5th Class) went one better when she won a 'Viking Tour' of the Heritage Park for the WHOLE CLASS!!!!

Both Kyle and Katie can be presented with their prizes later this evening on the Quay between 5pm and 6pm.

Well done to both and thanks to all the teachers and children who took part.

Girls' Mini Sevens 2019/20

Posted by on in The Faythe School
FaceBook  Twitter  

The first team to take the fields in GAA Competitions were the Girls' Mini 7 Gaelic Football team who took the field in Piercestown on Friday 20th September.
On a gloriously fine day the girls had mixed luck when beating Castlebridge in the first game but then being on the receiving end when defeated in their second game versus Piercestown.

The Girls played and behaved very well and most of all enjoyed themselves. While thanks are extended to both Mr. Ó Donnagáin and Ms. Forde, mentors on the day, the school's participation in these competitions wouldn't be possible without the very real support given to us by the parents / guardians who drove the team to the competition.
