Golden Book Awards

2021-2022 Awards

 Poppy, Holly, Grace & Chloe in 1st Larch - The girls were excellent role models. They were so helpful and worked really well with our Ukranian students. I am so grateful and proud of them. Ms Flynn

Rowan 1st Elm - for his amazing writing & work on a fairytale - Ms Donohoe

I would like to nominate 1st Class Elm to be in the Golden Book. They have been working so hard recently but they worked particularly hard when writing about how they made pancakes. Everyone drew lovely, detailed pictures and put their best effort into describing the process of making pancakes. Well done 1st Class! 

Ruben in 1st Call Elm- for display of lovely manners & respect. Canon Mungavin dropped his book & his pages fell on the ground outside. Ruben stopped and asked if he could help him to collect his paper.

Grace and Ciara from 6th Class - Both girls were very mannerly and stepped back to let me through the gate on their way out to break this week.

Roman for his outstanding homework. He always puts so much time and effort into his homework and presents it so well. He often does additional activities and share pictures of these on SeeSaw. He works so hard on his homework and he should be really proud of it!


Charlie - he has made great progress with his phonics lately and I am so impressed by how well he is listening and contributing his ideas and answers in class. His concentration and his good behaviour has really impressed me! Well done Charlie!

Ruben in 1st Call Elm- for display of lovely manners & respect. Canon Mungavin dropped his book & his pages fell on the ground outside. Ruben stopped and asked if he could help him to collect his paper.

Naoise- Makes a great effort and has such a great attitude towards Gaeilge.

Emilie- Kindness to others without ever being asked to help them.

Bobby- Working really hard over the last few weeks.

Laura, Alana, Elsie, Harry, Isabella, Ríona, and Issy  went the extra mile with a Maths test for converting fractions, decimals and percentages. They persevered and took their time to complete all of it as with great care and accuracy.

5th Class Girls: for using their initiative to tidy the balls in the PE cupboard. 


2nd Class: for getting a record number of ticks on their reward chart during the first week back after Christmas. 

Laila Britton in Fifth Class. Both Ms. Morgan and I agree that she is working extremely hard, both in school and at home, and she shows great dedication and determination, no matter what the task.   We feel that she certainly deserves special mention for her wonderfully positive attitude towards all she does.

Amy McAvoy, Amy wrote a wonderful story based on a simple picture prompt of an owl. All of what she wrote was relevant to the picture and she demonstrated her great sense of humour in it. Well done Amy!!

Noah Kelly, Noah has been making a great effort in class since returning to school after Christmas and his work has benefitted greatly from this. Well done Noah! 

Max Lidman, Scríobh sé a lán abairtí Gaeilge sa rang ar maidin. His wonderfully positive 'have a go' attitude is quietly tipping away and he has made sensible sentences with a capital letter, full stops, a date and a title! 

Sonny in 2nd: for cleaning up after others. (Washing hands and sanitising afterwards!)

​Donncha - 5th Class: He has exceeded ANY expectations I had by writing out 5 full sentences each night based on his homework from the very interesting book called Read At Home. I now know, that not only has he been reading at home every night and doing his reading homework, but he can also write in full sentences! GO DONNCHA! Ms. Morgan (Dec 2021)

Aoibhín 4th Willow - This is for her hard work in Maths. She has been making a real effort to improve and her hard work is paying off. Ms O Neill - Nov 2021

1st Class Elm - We thoroughly enjoyed your visit and First Class have raised the bar when it comes to smart, well behaved, beautiful children.  They are a credit to you guys and we can't wait to see you all back again soon.  Let me know if we can do anything for you or your class. Kind Regards, Catherine Costello, Librarian,  Greystones Library   (Nov 2021)  

All of 4th class Birch would like to nominate Miss Hickey for the golden book. A few weeks ago she cut and donated her beautiful hair to The Little Princess Trust. ‘Give Hope and Hair to children with cancer.’

We think this was very kind of her.

Georgia  & Adam 5th Class in particular for their insightful comments in Science during this week. They engaged really well with the Teagasc webinar on Friday along with the whole class participating fully in getting the school garden winter ready on Thursday. Ms Morgan (Nov 2021)

Jamie, Lilla and Lydia in 1st Class Larch -  for the most beautiful handwriting in their copybooks. They worked hard to unjumble these sentences and then took their time writing them out. They have also done incredible autumn pictures. Well done and keep up this amazing work!! Miss Flynn is so proud of you. 

Isabelle Johnston - As part of homework, they had to answer the question 'What do you think would happen next' and she wrote a long and descriptive ending to the story that went above and beyond the required answer. 

6th Class - I just wanted to pass along some positive feedback about 6th class from their recent visit to Temple Carrig to see the play. The staff that were in attendance during the play were very complementary about their behaviour and how engaged they were while watching the show. Deborah Crean, Deputy Principal Temple Carrig
