We are delighted to say that The Irish Catholic Newspaper (Thursday, December 13, 2018) wrote an article about our Opening Day of the Remembrance Garden and Grandparents Day.
Our school looks very festive this Christmas. We have a lot of beautiful art work on display and lots of decorations in the classrooms. Well done to all involved 🙂
We will be having our Grandparents & Friends Mass and the opening of our Remembrance Garden on Thursday 6th December. Mass with Bishop Leahy is in the church at 12:30, followed by the opening, at the school. Refreshments will be provided on the day. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
During Science week 3rd and 4th class explored sound, magnetism, floating and sinking, as well as exploring opaque, translucent and transparent.
Well done to all 🙂
