KWD Recycling held an interactive waste and recycling workshop with the children in 3rd and 4th class. This hands-on workshop demonstrates best practice when it comes to waste and recycling. It was thoroughly enjoyed by the children with each child receiving a ‘Recycle Right with Kenny and Benny booklet’ and a Certificate of Completion.
Congratulations to Leah Casey, Nikki O Sullivan and Lauren Gallagher who all received highly commended prizes for their Astellas Art Competition drawings. The title of this year’s competition was ‘Stop and think’. All three families attended an evening in Astellas where the pupils received their prizes and enjoyed a buffet meal. All drawings will be on the Astellas Kidney Association calendar. Well done to all!
Anti-Bullying/Friendship week was held in Cullina N.S. in October. All pupils were encouraged to carefully consider how they treat each other. All teachers taught lessons on anti bullying and pupils received follow up activities to complete for homework. Cullina says No to bullying!
Our first student council was set up in October 2017. This council aims to give the children of Cullina N.S a voice and an opportunity to enrich the future of our school. The council consists of eight members, boy and a girl from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class. Children from 3rd-6th Class were invited to put themselves forward for election. The pupils from these classes then voted by secret ballot to elect their council members. Meet the new Student Council Members!!
