Signs of Spring

School buildings may be closed but we thought the children would like to see that all things in nature are business as usual!

Garda Síochána Community Christmas Card Project

Today we had a visit from Garda Paula. The Senior Room have been busy writing their cards for people within our community. 

The students were asked to colour in Christmas cards and write a short letter or note to the recipient. All cards were supplied to, delivered to and collected from our school. They will be then forwarded to the named recipient within the county. 
The children were just so creative and each card is a magical and unique piece of work. They are truly special and it is guaranteed that these cards will bring many smiles to those lucky enough to receive them.

Sometimes the greatest gift we can give is showing kindness. 🌈
Thank you to Paula and Declan and to Orla McGrath of an Garda Síochána and their work with Leitrim Community Forum in putting this project together. 

The Junior Room pupils will colour their own Christmas cards also kindly donated by The Community Garda Policing Unit and give to the recipient of their choice.

Ice-cream treat in the September Sun

Bike Week 2020

Rain Gauge Senior Room

Senior Room pupils have migrated to Google Apps for our Rain Gauge Daily Reading.
Pupils are learning how to take and record readings using the iPad and a class Google Account. We then get the average rainfall for the month and publish the doc. 20mm of rain over the weekend! 

Happy First Holy Communion Day

We wish to congratulate our wonderful pupils on their preparations and participation on their Special Day last Saturday. 
Thank you Fr. Paul for helping us make the day so memorable. 
We will all continue to fill our shopping baskets with kindness, joy and forgiveness. 
A message that we all need to uphold during times of calm seas and in times of upheaval. 

A First Communion Blessing
May you always feel as close to Jesus as you do today,
May you always count on Him to gently guide your way,
May you always trust in God to answer every prayer,
May you always feel Him blessing you with His loving care.

Junior Infant Induction


Dear Parents,

We are planning an induction day on Friday 28th of August in the school. This will give the children an opportunity to meet one another and see the school and to meet the teachers before officially starting school on September 1st.
  • Parent(s) may drop child off at the school and enter building once social distancing and hand hygiene rules are observed.
  • Face coverings will be required by parents inside the school building. 
  • This will be a relaxed session and pupils are not required to wear their uniform. 
  • Parent(s) may leave children at the school and return for "pick up" 30 mins later. Session should be finished by 10.45/11am allowing for drop off /collection time.
  • Children are not required to bring food or bags of any kind. 
Any further updates will be communicated by text message. 

We are all really looking forward to meeting our new Junior Infants!

Happy Holidays!

Thank you to every pupil and family in our school for the amazing work completed by each and every one of you both in and out of Google Classroom throughout school closures. 

Thank you to our teachers and staff for their stellar efforts in keeping learning and motivation going for everyone. It was so nice to feel a closing to the school year for many reasons. The digital classroom was not without its technical hitches and steep learning curves for all parties but we all got on with things as best as we could and came out better for it in the end! Children, parents and teachers did this without any formal training or advance planning. 
This was a wonderful achievement for everyone involved, perhaps one we will only fully understand in the coming months. Comhghairdeas!

We would like to wish our 6th class pupils the very best in their move to secondary school in the autumn. We would in particular like to thank Master Gerard Reilly for sending a special message to you all shared last week. We also thank our Parents’ Association for all their efforts in giving the children the send off they deserved with goodie bags, vouchers and souvenir t-shirts. 

And now for the practical: 
  • Junior Infants click here (note on the original booklist Handwriting Copies B4 x2 is listed. Please change to B2 x 2)
  • Senior Infants click here (note on the original booklist Handwriting Copies B4 x2 is listed. Please change to B2 x 2)
  • First Class click here
  • Second Class click here
  • Senior Room click here (3rd and 4th class to purchase Bua na Cainte 3 only)

Feedback from families is that it is useful for you all to gave access to a digital copy of our booklist in addition to the printed copy posted to you all last week.

Any important updates will be sent by text message over the summer. These may direct you to view more detailed updates on website or Google Classroom. 

Wishing you all a lovely summer, be kind, keep washing those hands and above all else stay safe. 

Le dea ghuí,
Mrs. Gilmartin and all staff at Leckaun N.S.
