This is Healthy Lifestyle Week

September 12th, 2017 by Ms Wynne

Monday 11th to Friday 15th September is Healthy Lifestyle Week in Talbot. Thank you to Valerie and Dylan and all in Mr Coleman’s class for creating a lovely banner for the school reception to let everyone know what’s going on in our school this week. The focus of healthy lifestyle week this year is healthy eating and all children are getting a chance to taste a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every day through the Food Dudes Programme. Also at Assembly on Thursday (9.10 3rds and 4ths and 9:45 5ths and 6ths) Ms Skelly’s class will do a presentation on Healthy Eating. We are not forgetting fitness and we encourage all our students to make good use of our new running track. Keep an eye on the website for up to date photos of fitness in action on the track.

Talbot Celebrates Diversity

June 22nd, 2017 by Ms Wynne

We are all different–look around, not one person in the whole world is the same as you. We are all different and we are all equal. In Talbot we celebrate that each of us is unique. And we very much want to recognise this diversity that makes our school the wonderful place that it is. 

At assembly today Mr Gilmartin’s class and Mr Stuart talked about the many languages spoken as a first language by Talbot’s children or parents. The total languages here used to be 21–now it’s a record 29!

Mr Gilmartin’s class designed and made beautiful posters of the word WELCOME written in the 29 different languages of our school community. They will go up at the school entrance–so that everyone feels welcome in our school.

The languages of our school are: Algerian, Arabic, Bengali/Bangla, Bosnian, Chinese, Creole (Mauritius Creole), Edo, English, Filipino/Tagalog, French, Gaeilge, German, Ghan, Italian, Latvian, Lingala, Lithuanian, Moldovan, Nigerian, Polish, Romanian (“Gypsy Romanian”), Romanian (“Moldovan Romanian”), Russian, Turkish, Urdu (Pakistani), Vietnamese, Xhosa, and Yoruba.

Talbot Computer Science Club

June 9th, 2017 by Ms Wynne

Today at assembly Mr. Bannon and Mr. Byrne showcased two projects created at Talbot’s CS club. Well done to the children involved in their creation. They were super cool, with great dialogue, visuals, action and sound effects. Looking forward to seeing more. The CS club runs for two more weeks before we break for summer holidays.
