On Friday 30th we held our final assembly before the summer holidays. We talked about keeping safe around water and roads over the holidays and said goodbye to Ms Coyne who will be leaving us for a year. Children who have had excellent attendance received their prizes from Mrs. McGowan.

Brenda from Sligo Library came to visit us before the school holidays. She told us all about the Summer Stars reading adventure. This is a free programme and open to all children. Once children register in Sligo Library, they get a reading card with 8 boxes. They choose 2 books to read at home and when they return them, the librarian will stamp their card and they can also collect some nice rewards. At the end of the programme, when they have read 8 books, all those who have taken part will be invited to an awards event where they will receive their Summer Reading Star Certificate and a medal!
Brenda was delighted to hear that children in our school have been reading lots of books from our own library as well and presented reading certificates for the term to children from 3rd to 6th classes.
Sligo Library is now open Tuesday to Saturday every week. See www.summerstars.ie for more information or contact Sligo Library at 071 9111850
