We had a very exciting Maths Day of celebrations today in the school! Every class came up with a couple of different games and presented them to every other class in the halla throughout the day. We had great fun sharing our games with older and younger children. We hope we can have more days like this in the school!!
St Brigids Day 2018
February 1st, 2018
There was a real spring in our step this morning so what better way to celebrate the start of spring and St Brigids Day than making our very own crosses. 5th class were delighted to have Ms Hacketts Junior Infant class come to help us and 6th class popped in to make some crosses also. We are going to hang them up in our homes so that they can keep the people of our homes safe. Happy St Brigids Day everyone!
Grandparents Day 2018
February 1st, 2018
We were delighted to welcome so many grandparents and other family members and friends to our Grandparents Day service earlier today. We had such a large crowd that we had people in every empty space in the hall. Every class told a short story, a poem or sang a song for their grandparents. It was such a lovely morning. We were delighted to get the chance to tell our grannies and grandads how special they are to us in our lives. They are famous now that their photo is up on the internet!!

Not only were 4th-6th classes busy topping music charts for Christmas but they also went to the town centre to bring some Christmas spirit to shoppers in the town centre. We really enjoyed our performance and it got us in the mood for the festive season also!! Thanks to Ms. Halliday especially for all her work with us over the past few months.
Christmas Number 1
December 11th, 2017
Since we’ve come back from our summer holidays, 4th-6th classes have been very busy practicing for a special project. As you know, Joanne has visited the orphanage in Goradiche, Belarus over the last few years, to help the many special children in need over there. In the past, we have held a number of fundraisers to help purchase supplies for these children. This year, Joanne and her husband Don came up with the novel idea of recording a single which will be available to buy before Christmas…we hope to make it a Number 1 hit. Children from St. Conaires have also been practicing the same song and we met this week in Mary Immaculate Church to record the single. We had to sing without any music which was possible thanks to conductor Don and DJ. We really enjoyed taking part in this project and can’t wait to hear the final version…it will make a marvellous Christmas gift for families in Shannon and Goradiche. We also sang a song of our own to add to the album. See above for some photographs of the recording.
Update: Last Thursday, we officially launched our single in Insomnia. It was a really special night and we were delighted to have none other than Santa Claus himself come to our launch. If you haven’t written your letters to man himself yet, our CD would make a lovely gift and all proceeds going to a charity close to all our hearts.
