Bhí na páistí ag canadh, ag damhsa agus ag spraoi!
On Thursday 2nd March the school celebrated World Book Day and on Friday 3rd March many children came to school as their favourite book character. All classes got time to do Paired Reading, where a child from an older class gets an opportunity to read with a child from a younger class, which was enjoyed by all.
The school also celebrated 30 years of Where’s Wally!
Congratulations to the boys and girls of Junior and Senior Infants for their wonderful performance of the Landlord’s Cat.
‘The Landlord’s Cat’ tells the story of the Nativity through the eyes of a cat! The landlord’s cat is so fed up with the hectic atmosphere in Bethlehem, and being ignored by his owner, that he is on the verge of leaving town. However, with the arrival of Mary and Joseph in the stable, as well as wise men and shepherds, the cat (being a wily and intuitive creature), senses that something very special is about to happen. Naturally he is determined to find out just what it is.
A big thank you to their teachers Ms. Griffin and Mr. Ó’hAnluain and all those who helped to make the performance a great success.
Well done to the boys and girls of First and Second Class for their wonderful performance of It’s a Baby.
A Nativity with a difference, tells the traditional story from the perspective of a weary innkeeper. Thanks to all parents for their help and support throughout. Well done to their teachers Mrs. Harnett and Mr. McCarthy. Thanks also to Phyl Hegarty, Kay Healy and Siobhán Smith.
We congratulate the pupils of Junior and Senior Infants on their performance of The Landlord’s Cat and pupils of First and Second on It’s a Baby.
Children will sing traditional Christmas carols from 9.45 on Thursday, December 22 in the church followed by recorder recital after mass.
The school will close for holidays at 12 noon on December 22 and re-open on Monday, January 9th. We wish you all a very happy Christmas.
Le gach dea ghuí,
Marie Griffin (Principal)
