Active body, healthy foods.

Sixth Class recognise that being physically active is extremely important.  However, it is also vital that we have a balanced diet as our bodies need a variety of foods so that they can grow, repair, give us energy etc.

We conducted research and designed a web page that encourages children to eat healthy food and snacks.  We presented our findings and some of us even whipped up samples for the class to try!  Our wonderful web pages, with suggestions and recipes are available to view on the Active School Notice Board.

Epiphany Assembly

posted in: School News | 0

We were delighted to welcome our Patron, Archbishop Michael Jackson, to lead our school assemblies on the Feast of the Epiphany.  His Grace gave the children an overview of his role as Patron of the school and his role in the church.  Our Chairperson, Mr. Dudley Dolan, was also in attendance and he outlined to the pupils the role of the Board of Management.  Reverend Nigel lead us in prayer.  All the children sang beautifully during our two assemblies.  All in all it was a very pleasant and informative experience.

Learning to bell ring

posted in: School News | 0

We were very lucky to have two of the Taney Bell Ringers visit this week.  They came to teach the children of 4th, 5th and 6th classes to ring some Christmas carols on a set of hand bells that have been recently restored.  What a unique experience!

Shoebox Appeal

Team Hope came back to school yesterday in a double-decker bus to collect the Christmas shoeboxes which Taney children kindly filled over the last few weeks.  Sixth Class pupils helped carry out and load the boxes into the Team Hope bus.  This year 364 colourful shoeboxes were sent off by Taney children – imagine how much joy these gifts will bring to lucky girls and boys who receive them – well done to all the children who took part!!

Diocesan Service in Christ Church Cathedral

posted in: School News | 0

On Thursday 17th October ten pupils and two teachers represented our school at this year’s Diocesan Service, after which we went to visit the crypt.  The crypt is located in the basement of the Cathedral.  One child in particular was delighted to see Strongbow’s tomb as they are studying the Normans in class at the moment.
