School reopens on Wednesday 6th January, 2016.
As Christmas draws nearer, we made reindeer food in school. The magic recipe was completed with a stir by the children in Junior and Senior Infants. We hope it helps the reindeer to fly on Christmas Eve!
In Assembly today, we lit three candles on our Advent wreath to celebrate the Third Sunday of Advent. Next week, we will light four candles.
Today, we made two towers at break time. We joined them up to make one big tower. Do you like it?
Our annual Christmas party was held on Tuesday 15th December for Infants, First and Second classes. We had lots of fun playing party games. We even had a visit from Santa Claus!
Thank you to Papa John’s Pizza who sponsored our delicious party food, Tullow Group of Parishes for their generous contribution toward party costs and the Caldbeck family for their kind donation of a Christmas tree.
Our Christmas concert was held on Thursday 10th December in the school hall. It was a fantastic evening!
1st-6th classes performed some choral pieces, directed by the talented Alison Behan from Music Generation. Junior and Senior Infants performed Whoops a Daisy Angel while 1st – 6th classes performed the Magical Christmas Jigsaw.
Our hall was packed with parents, grandparents, friends and well wishers.
Thank you to all for their support on the evening.
Our school hall is ready for our Christmas concert which will be held this evening at 6.30pm.
We look forward to it!
