Hi Powerstown families! Want to help our school win sports equipment or some funding for sports equipment? Powerstown ENTS is participating in Aldi's Rugby competition. If you shop in Aldi and you spend €30 or more ask for a rugby sticker. If we collect enough to fill a poster we can send it away and be in with a chance to win €50,000 or some fantastic sports equipment. The poster will be posted up outside our parents room. Children and families are welcome to bring in the stickers and put them up on this poster. Any support you can give us would be much appreciated
Well done to all the children in Willow class who didn't miss a day of school in the month of January- keep up the great work all!
Thanks to all the organising by one of our teachers, Aoife McGonigle, for putting together a really fantastic Heritage Week.

We learned about the different types of homes and house, how we use electricity in our homes, homes from long ago and we read and dramatised the story of 'Town Mouse, Country Mouse. We were busy bees during our Aistear exploration of this topic. We constructed houses and cities with recycled materials, clay and sand. We in role as builders and the characters from our story of 'Town mouse, country mouse in our role play and small world and we wrote letters to the characters too!
