Nagle Rice Welcomes Minister Norma Foley and Minister Jack Chambers

Apr 29 2022

Today we were honoured to welcome Minister for Education  Ms. Norma Foley and Minister for Sport Mr. Jack Chambers to Nagle Rice School. What a wonderful occasion to relaunch ‘The Daily Mile’ in association with ‘Athletics Ireland’. We were delighted to welcome Mr. Hamish Adams CEO of Athletics Ireland, Mr. Frank Greally, Ambassador for the daily mile and Ms. Valerie O’Brien. We thank Mr. Michael McCarthy Chairperson of our board of management, Fr. Danny Broderick, Ms. Gina Barron from our Parents Association, Councillors Michael O’Shea and John Francis Flynn who all represented our school and community.

We were honoured to be invited to relaunch the Daily Mile in Nagle Rice school. The Daily Mile is a social physical activity, with children running or jogging – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends. Children can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes.

We want every child to have the opportunity to do The Daily Mile at primary school, and are now working to build The Daily Mile’s community in our school.

The Minister was welcomed by our wonderful musicians Michael O’Connor and Donnacha Leane. The Minister met with all the pupils and staff on our all weather pitch and we were blessed with the sunshine. We wish to thank both Ministers for their kind words and meaningful interaction with all staff and pupils. Finally we wish to thank and congratulate the pupils of Nagle Rice who were fantastic ambassadors of our school.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

February 8th 2022 is Safer Internet Day, an important day in our school calendar. Celebrated every year across the EU and in other countries around the world, Safer Internet Day (SID) promotes the safe and positive use of digital technology, especially among children and young people.
In Ireland, Safer Internet Day is promoted by PDST Technology in Education and Webwise, with the theme “Together for a Better Internet”. Along with hundreds of other schools from around Ireland, Nagle-Rice Primary School will be celebrating Safer Internet Day.
To mark Safer Internet Day, our school will be hosting poster competitions, presentations on internet Safety, quizzes, puzzles and safety online stories .
This year for Safer Internet Day, parents are being encouraged to get involved in the #TalkListenLearn campaign which promotes having open and ongoing conversations with children and teenagers about using the internet in a safe and positive way. The Webwise Topic Generator is a great way to help families start the conversation. It can be accessed at talklistenlearn.webwise.ie. The Webwise Parents Hub also provides practical advice on key online safety topics, videos from parenting, technology, and education experts, along with Talking Points to start a conversation with your child, and Explainer Guides to popular apps and platforms. Visit www.webwise.ie/parents for more information.

Along with millions of other people around the world, we hope that you will join us in marking Safer Internet Day 2022 and help to create a safer, better internet.

Yours sincerely
Mr. Liam Fell
