February 25th, 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are well this week as we come to the end of February. Our news is as follows

  • We were very fortunate yesterday to have actors from the Abbey Theatre here in the school to put on a performance of “Mollster”, a play exploring the life of a child during the events of 1916 for the pupils in 5th and 6th classes. The actors involved then did a workshop with the pupils following the performance. The pupils engaged so well with the experience and it helped to bring this period of history alive.

5th Class Bingo

February 12th, 2016

To celebrate Grandparents Day and Catholic Schools Week, 5th class played bingo and have also been learning the card game 45. We found that both games are so much fun.  We found some of the Bingo lingo, very funny to listen to. We never thought we’d be talking about two little ducks, walking sticks, legs eleven, clickety-click and unlucky for some during playtime!!
