A Puzzle to Ponder

A woman went to a hardware store to buy something for her house.

She asked about the price.

The shop assistant was very helpful and told her that

1 cost 12 cent

48 cost 24 cent

144 cost 36 cent.

I wonder what did she want to buy.

Think about it. Ask your parents to think about it and maybe you will solve the puzzle before the end of September.

If you figure it out, write your answer on a piece of paper and give it to Mrs Mc Gowan or Ms Coyne before the 30th of September. Remember to include your name with your answer.


Roald Dahl Day

Roald Dahl Day takes place every year on 13 September, on the birthday of the World’s No. 1 Storyteller.
This year, 3rd Class in St Edward’s N.S. celebrated this special day by either dressing up as their favourite character from a book by Roald Dahl or by bringing in their favourite Roald Dahl story and discussing it with the class.
‘Matilda’ was a popular choice to dress up as for the girls and we also had the queen from ‘The BFG’ . The boys dressed up as George from ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’, ‘Matilda’s nasty father and Mr Twit from ‘The Twits’ .
We had great fun chatting about our favourite books also.

Coffee morning

Coffee Morning.
There will be a coffee morning in St. Edward’s school on Thursday September 15th between 8.50 and 11.00. Parents and friends welcome. All donations to North West Hospice. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Welcome back!

Dear Pupils

Welcome back to a new school year. I hope you all had a lovely break and are looking forward to continuing the good work and behaviour that are expected in St. Edward’s NS.

It is lovely to see you all again and hear all your news from the summer. It is also wonderful to see you all in your school uniform. This year the only change for PE days is that you wear a navy tracksuit bottom. The uniform sweatshirt and polo shirt are ideal for all activities. Change out of it when you go home in the evening, so that it will last the year.

This year we intend to continue improving in Literacy and Numeracy. The results of the tests you all did in May were better than the results of the year before. Keep up that good work.

The focus now is on improving punctuality and attendance. It is important be in school every day, unless you are sick. It is also important to be punctual. School starts at 8.50am. From now on if you are late, your parent has to come in to sign the Late Book.

Did you notice the flower boxes at the front of the school that the Green Fingers club planted in May? Johnny looked after them during the holidays. He watered them and fed them. Remember to thank him as he really is the best caretaker.

I also want to welcome back all the teachers, assistants and Trish our secretary.

Wishing all pupils, staff and families a happy and healthy school year.

Mrs McGowan
