Bhí gach duine ag damhsa ag an gcéilí mór an Déardaoin seo caite. Bhí an céilí go hiontach agus bhí Caoilin agus Siobhán ag damhsa i lár an halla. Maith sibh a chailíní! Féach ar na pictiúrí.....
Bhí na cailíní go léir ag caitheamh glas inniu le haghaidh an Lá Glas sa scoil. All of the children in the school made the word BEO in the yard, which means Alive. We want our teanga Gaeilge to be alive in our school. More exciting activities for Seachtain na Gaeilge to follow!!
The girls enjoyed a relaxing and fun retreat in Emmaus today. It was part of the preparation for Confirmation on the 20th April. There was some beautiful singing as well as meditation and a prayer service.The girls enjoyed pasta for lunch and some cookies and juice during the day too.
We have been working very hard in class over the last few weeks so teacher thought it would be a nice treat to make pancakes in class for Pancake Tuesday! We all enjoyed some home made pancakes along with yummy toppings such as lemon, sugar, maple syrup and strawberries! We will also be using the pancake making as inspiration for our procedural writing in English and Gaeilge this month. We really enjoyed the pancakes and here are some pictures!
On Wednesday 14th February we had a 'Pyjama Day' in school. Well done to all of the girls who wore such colourful pyjamas and brought in donations for the Laura Lynn Hospice.What a great cause to support at the start of Lent.
We wrote speeches this week in class and our title was "Should ipads replace all school books?" Many of the girls read their speeches for the class and we had an open debate on the subject. The girls had some fantastic points to make on both sides and were very articulate in their presentations. Well done girls!
We were lucky enough to have Ann Hanan visit our class today to make St. Brigid's crosses with our class. It is St. Brigid's Day tomorrow on the 1st of February and we have some beautiful crosses to celebrate the special day! We will get them blessed at our school Mass in the school hall tomorrow. Ann is definitely an expert at making the crosses and was so helpful to all the girls during the demonstration. Many thanks to Ann and Happy St. Brigid's Day to you all!
We are celebrating Catholic Schools Week at school this week. The theme of the week is all about Families. We started off the week with our prayer service and some of our parents and grandparents came. They were invited to stay for tea afterwards and some of the girls baked some nice goodies to share with everyone. Well done to everyone! It was a lovely way to start Catholic Schools Week.
We started hockey training last week and it was great fun! We are learning new skills and keeping fit in the new year!
On Thursday the 11th Jan we got a chance to visit the BT Science Exhibition in the RDS in Dublin. We had a fantastic time! We were able to support Ms. Brodigan and her 6th Class girls with their entry on The Heart and improving their fitness. We are so proud of them! We also got to see many of the Secondary school entries too! The girls managed to find lots of stands giving away free bags, balls, pens, pencils and many other gifts so they didn't go home empty handed!
What a great day! Have a look at our photographs.
