Happy to say, everyone had a great time today at our “Open Morning”! Our 6th Class girls were excellent ambassadors for the school and are a great credit to themselves, Mr Lehmann and their families..well done, girls!! Ms Sherry provided some lovely treats and Sr Brid made sure everything was spick and span! Someone demolished all the chocolate mallows, though…Mr Lynch is thinking of holding an investigation, cause there were none left for him! Everyone was mightily impressed by the work done in the Computer Room by Ms Farren’s and Ms McCaw’s Classes and, as for all the dancing done with Ms Carpenter and Ashling………………
…….that was just the business!!! A big “thanks” to all the teachers who welcomed everyone into their rooms and let them watch the girls eating their yummy pancakes and beavering away at their studies…
There was great excitement this morning when we had our first serious snowfall in quite a while.. Our garden took on a very different look, as you can see from the photos. It’s due a tidy-up before we start planting again for this year, so it was lovely to see last years’ plants get this little treat before we take them away to be composted and go on to help other plants grow next year..
We’re a GAS crowd, really!! We just LOVE everything…we REALLY do!! Reading………..writing………….our teacher, Ms. Ryan…and we just can’t resist havin’ the craic and a good oul’ laugh! Sure, WHERE would you be without it!!??
Yes, indeed! This year, 5th and 6th Classes took part in the “Hallelujah Concert” for the third year in a row and, once again, it was a great success. Everyone went home singing after a great night out! Ms Lynn and Mr Lehmann did a great job preparing the girls for the occasion and we all got to hear their new medleys during our Christmas Concerts. We hope to hear them perform at a few more local events before the end of the year. CAN’T WAIT!!
Back in September, Fr. Fergal asked us if we would like to meet some of the new arrivals on his “farm” behind his house. How could we refuse?! So, one day, we fenced off a bit of our garden and he brought Mammy Hen and her little chicks over to see us… We had a great time looking at them and talking to them. At first, they were a bit anxious and scared but, after a while, they relaxed and started talking back to us! They made a little bit of a mess but we didn’t mind…Next year Fr. Fergal might put nappies on them!!
Although it all happened nearly three months ago, it only seems like yesterday that all these scary characters came to school for a day! Many of them performed songs and poems in the hall and had parents and teachers shaking in their shoes and rocking in their socks! Luckily they didn’t come back the next day, so we were able to relax once again and get back to work… They weren’t all bad, though. They left us some money that we passed on to Temple Street Hospital for their “Trick or Treat” Campaign. We really hope that they’ll call to see us again next year!
This morning, 5th and 6th Classes got back into the swing of things as they started back hurling after the long winter break. Mr. Lehmann and Jonny, our coach from Clanna Gael, put them through their paces. Keep at it girls and remember to get in some practice at the weekends!
