Easter Assembly

We had an Easter assembly today. The girls from 5th class told us the story of Holy Week and they explained the origins of some Easter traditions. Ms. Hume presented awards to the girls who won “Gaeilgeoir na Míosa”. She  brought the prizewinners from the INTO handwriting competition on to the stage.This year we have two category winners, Fiona O’Toole and Eimear Quinn who will proceed to the regional competition.  Ms. Hume also spoke to Amy and Fiona who were prizewinners in the Dublin Libraries short story competition. Congratulations to all our winners.

The Junior and Senior recorder bands performed a short excerpt from their recent performance at the Córfheile.

Sixth Class Trip

On the 21st of March we went  on a school trip to the National  Museum and Number 29  Merrion Square which is a famous Georgian house. We went to see the bog bodies and Celtic artifacts in the national  museum. Afterwards we had our lunch in Merrion Square. As we were walking to number 29, we saw where Daniel O’Connell lived. In number 29 we saw how the wealthy people and their servants lived. It rained a bit when we were walking back to the bus stop but it was still a great day!

PA Bingo ..thanks from Ms. Hume

We had a great night at the bingo last night. The children and their families were ‘eyes down’ waiting for their chance to shout ‘BINGO!’ Jackie and the committee worked so hard to ensure we had a great night. Thanks a million everyone.

Chocolate Nests

We made chocolate nests today in 2nd class. We used melted chocolate and Shreddies. We mixed them well together and made nests. Then we added eggs and chicks. Yummy!

 

 

Happy Easter from Ms. Hume

I hope that you all have a very happy Easter and a good rest. You have  worked very hard  this term.

It is wonderful to see  all of your  work and activities on the school blog.

You have  been very busy! Well Done!

Confirmation

In preparation for our Confirmation we had our Service of Light on the 11th of March.It was a lovely ceremony with the 5th class choir singing beautifully. We brought our Baptismal candles and when they were lit our parents handed them to us and said”Keep the light of Christ burning in your life,”On the Confirmation day itself,  the 19th of March, it was raining and snowing. When the the mass started, Bishop Eamonn Walsh told us to take in deep breaths in case we were nervous.The 5th class choir sang better than ever and the girls who had jobs did them perfectly. After being anointed with chrism, the Bishop called us all up to the altar to give us cards with a statement from the Bible.We want to thank our teachers, the lovely choir and Bishop Éamonn Walsh for helping and supporting us on our way to Confirmation.

Irish dancing and Leprechaun traps!

We dressed in green and joined fourth class in the hall for some Irish dancing last Wednesday. After break we returned to the hall to watch a wonderful display from all our talented dancers. We were so inspired in fact, that we abandoned our play to do our own Irish dancing display in our classroom! We were especially proud of Siena from our class who danced on her own for the whole school. She was fantastic. Roisin brought in a story for us called ‘The Night before St. Patrick’s day’. It was all about how to catch a leprechaun. We loved it so much that we made some traps of our own!
