Scoil San Carlo is a senior primary school catering for boys and girls from 8  years to 12 years. Scoil San Carlo is a school with a catholic tradition and  ethos, however, we welcome children of all faiths and none.   Our school recognises the variety of differences that exist among children and the need to appreciate and respect all difference both ethnic and  cultural.
We recently held elections for the first ever school  student council. Pupils were elected from each class from 4th to 6th by their own classmates to represent their view and ideas on how to improve school life  and promote new projects. Meet our first ever San Carlo Student Council in the  photo below! 
This week the Nurture group made ghosts made out of bamboo sticks, felt, plastic and white sheets. Then we put them out in the garden. The older Nurture group carved pumpkins and we put them out in the garden as well. We also decorated the herb wheel with warning tape and fake spider webs then we put the pumpkins in the middle of the herb wheel. So drop down to Scoil San Carlo’s garden and get spooked by the HERB WHEEL OF HORROR!!!!
My name is Reva and I am 11 years old. The book I published is called "The Legend of the Book of Secrets".
The book is about a girl moving into a new house but she realises that there is someone or something enchanted in her house that needs help!

Ms O Shea’s class have been very busy recently combining Art and Craft with Science! Firstly, a few weeks ago, they constructed volcanoes using a salt dough base. Then, this week, they mixed vinegar and baking soda to see if they could re-create the eruption process. You can see what happened in the photos below...
Mr. Sherlock's class completed a marathon over 7 weeks in conjunction with the Marathon Kids Ireland programme. Here they are in Morton Stadium Santry following completion of their final mile.

Dear Parents / Guardians, The teachers have spent the last week preparing online work for their classes. We have decided to use the online platform Padlet to provide work for the children.  Teachers can be contacted by email at the addresses on the Padlet page. The Padlet can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate link below. This work is intended to be of assistance to you in providing structure to your child's day and keeping your child in engaged with learning activities. It is important to remember that this is a very stressful time for all, and each family's circumstances are different. You will decide how much of the work your child will complete. When the children complete their work, they can send it to their teacher's email address as an email or as an attachment. Alternatively, photos could be taken of work done and sent on to the teacher. A selection of pupil’s work will be posted onto the school website so they can see how their friends are getting on. As this is a new experience for us all we would appreciate any feedback you and your child might like to give to their class teacher or to office@scoilsancarlo.ie this will allow the teachers to fine tune future class Padlet pages. The next Padlet update will be on Monday 20th April after the Easter break. Of course, pupils can, if you wish, continue to use the links to online activities during this time. 6th Classes    https://padlet.com/sscsnseoinmcc/v2ryzafl87j9 5th Classes      https://padlet.com/SSCSNS/fj4d9f6l6oeh 4th Classes       https://padlet.com/lisactward/77xfvqapmug0 3rd classes       https://padlet.com/sscsnsmaryb/amhnaybo9rgo Take care of yourselves in these difficult times.

FLAGS FOR OUR FRONTLINE HEROES Hang your Flags Country, County, Club, Provincial to show your support for Frontline Workers during the COVID-19 crisis
Across the country, children are coming to a new realisation that heroes come in many forms and that many of them in fact are in their own homes. In the face of the Global COVID-19 pandemic, these heroes are their parents, cousins, neighbours and friends who are spending long hours, day and night, fighting to ensure that this virus is controlled and lives are protected. Education and sporting organisations, propose that, as a show of support for those workers and volunteers on front lines at this critical time, all children who have a flag in their national, county or club colours, or whatever team they follow across any code, would hang that flag from their gate posts, windows, or wherever they would normally place a flag when  supporting their county club or team ahead of an important match. If they don’t have a flag, children could be encouraged to create a flag on a sheet of paper or cardboard, or by doing some sewing, with the added benefit of keeping them occupied for a while. While sports events at the moment are currently postponed, such a show of solidarity from the children of the country towards those on the front line will demonstrate our gratitude for their marvellous dedication to their critical work at this extraordinary time. Hanging out the flags will also provide colour to lift everybody at a time when people are psychologically feeling the effects of this terrible pandemic. We hope that in the coming days, with your help, every road, street, lane, avenue, estate and apartment complex will be festooned with colour to honour our heroes - our families, neighbours and friends in the front-line services.
