What is a Health Promoting School?

“A Health Promoting School (HPS) is defined by the World Health Organization as “a school that constantly strengthens its capacity as a healthy setting for living, learning and working” (WHO 1998).

In a HPS, health is viewed in its broadest sense and includes the physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of health.” (Health Promoting Schools, Information for Schools, HSE)

We have a Health Promoting School Committee set up which has representatives from pupils, parents and staff in our school and we are looking forward to working together on this initiative in a whole – school approach to health and well-being.

We are very excited about this new venture in St Oliver’s.

‘Carlingford Soap’

Posted by: St. Oliver's N.S. | April 15, 2015 Comments Off on ‘Carlingford Soap’ |

Rang 5 agus 6 have been very busy over term 2 working as young business people as part of the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. Over the course of 3 months we learned all about entrepreneurship, had a business visitor, took part in an enterprise workshop, pitched business ideas at our very own ‘Dragon’s Den’, decided on our class business project ‘Carlingford Soap’, created our product and finally sold it! It’s certainly been a busy few months. ‘Carlingford Soap’ was such a great success that we completely sold out! We made a total profit of 286.95! This project incorporated a lot of curricular areas, especially English, Maths and Science. Have a look at our pictures.

Animals and Their Habitats – Google Presentations

Posted by: St. Oliver's N.S. | March 8, 2015 Comments Off on Animals and Their Habitats – Google Presentations |

3rd and 4th class really enjoyed learning how to create amazing presentations this term in class and have been working on creating slides on animals and their habitats to present to their class.

Learning about and using IT in this way is one of the steps to achieving a STEM award this year.

We had the first pupil present his to the class recently and he certainly set the standard very high!
