Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal

posted in: School News | 0

Before half term, James and Kathy Malseed came to tell all the children about the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox appeal.  These colourful shoeboxes full of gifts to “Wash, Wear, Write and Wow!” are sent to thousands of children across Africa and Eastern Europe.  Last week the boxes that our Taney pupils put together were collected by Team Hope – with the help of our 6th class pupils!

There was a total of 304 boxes which is fantastic!  Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Excitement was high among staff and children on the last day of school before the Hallowe’en break.  We all came to school dressed up in all sorts of weird and wonderful costumes.  Luckily the weather held – it was a beautiful day for our Hallowe’en Parade at breaktime!

Daily Mile

Both 5th and 6th class have been taking part in the Marathon Kids Daily Mile Challenge.  We run a mile every day which has really helped improve our fitness and concentration levels in school.  This week our students in each class received t-shirts and other merch to mark their amazing efforts.  Well done to all!

Check out Ireland’s Fittest Family on Sunday evening, RTE1 at 6.30pm, to support past pupils, Luke and Evan Caddow, and their Mum and Dad.  During their time here, both boys represented Taney on our hockey and football teams and enjoyed all the sporting opportunities they could get their hands on!  Come on the Caddows!!

Class of 2022 Graduate from Taney

We were delighted to be able to hold our Graduation Service in person on the 29th June 2022, the first we have had in Taney Church since 2019.  We had a beautiful service in the church, the Junior Infant buddies accompanied 6th class down the aisle, showing how much we grow and learn in our eight years in Taney.  Both 6th classes sang songs and took us on a walk down memory lane with the poems they wrote.  Mrs Fraser presented 6th class with their graduation certificates and after this the parents joined us in the school hall for refreshments.  6th classes really enjoyed putting together year books and memory boxes to mark their time in Taney.  We wish them the very best in their future and know we will hear many wonderful stories of their successes in the years to come!

Sports Day 2022

posted in: School News | 0

On Friday, 10th of June, we were thrilled to be back in Marlay Park for our first sports day since 2019 – to put that in context, the current 6th class were in 3rd class.  Everyone had great fun and the sun stayed out for us!  For the first time the children competed in house teams, with each place in a race gaining points for their team.  They all wore red, blue and green, their team colours, and there was great camaraderie and support for their teammates.  In the end the Red Team came first 🥇, followed by the Green Team in second place 🥈 and then the Blue Team 🥉.

One of the highlights of the day was the 6th class vs staff tug o war.  First, there was the 6th class heat, which Mr Ross’s class won, meaning that they were the team to compete against the staff.  Though the staff tried hard, and at one stage it could have gone either way, 6th class were victorious in the end 🏆🏆🏆.


Thank you to the PTA, sports committee and parents who helped us to make this wonderful day possible.
