Internet safety week is coming up. Read this poem by Elle in Room 19 about bullying and remember to be safe on the internet and when you are playing outside.
A bully is somebody that makes you sad.
They punch you and kick you and make you feel bad.
A bully is somebody that makes you mad.
If they hurt you tell your mam or dad.
A bully is somebody that makes you scared.
Make sure you tell someone and have your voice heard.
A bully is somebody that makes you feel alone.
Make sure you stay safe on the internet and on your phone.
Thanks to Ms O'Toole for organising the science show for the junior infants, senior infants and 1st class. The girls all had a great time!

Going to see Santa, without a frown.

To put up a tree, and a Christmas stocking.

Hurry up Santa, don’t be long!

Hope you get presents and you will be lucky!
