WELL DONE TO THESE 3RD CLASS PUPILS WHO WORKED VERY HARD TO GRADUATE TO PEN!

JUNIOR INFANTS INVITED THEIR GRANDPARENTS TO VISIT THE SCHOOL. THEY SANG SONGS, RECITED A POEM AND HAD THEIR PHOTOS TAKEN WITH THEIR GRANNIES AND GRANDADS. THIS LOVELY VISIT INCLUDED A NICE CUP OF TEA/COFFEE AND TREATS FOR THESE VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE.

WE CELEBRATED ST. BRIGID’S DAY BY ATTENDING MASS, DOING ART WORK ABOUT ST. BRIGID AND BY MAKING ST. BRIGID’S CROSSES.

 

WELL DONE TO ALL THE PUPILS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS YEAR’S CREDIT UNION SCHOOLS QUIZ. WE HAD THIRTEEN TEAMS PARTICIPATING THIS YEAR WITH ONE TEAM COMING FIRST PLACE AND ANOTHER COMING 2ND PLACE IN THE UNDER 12S SECTION:

WE ARE BUSY PREPARING FOR FRIENDSHIP WEEK (FEBRUARY 5TH TO 9TH). HERE ARE PHOTOS OF PUPILS PAINTING OUR NEW BUDDY BENCHES WHICH WILL BE FINISHED VERY SOON. WE HOPE TO HAVE ONE IN EACH YARD.
