June 23rd, 2017 by Mr. Stuart and tagged ,

Wow! Lennon Berrigan in 5th class has broken the school record! Never before has anyone at Talbot typed so fast. 

Yesterday, the 22nd June 2017, Lennon typed at a speed of 74 words per minute (wpm). He showed me and his teacher Ms Ward the certificate from,which he got when practicing here in school.

Many many congratulations to him. How fast will he be next year?

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.
