Congratulations to the boys and girls in 2nd Class who celebrated their First Holy Communion on Saturday 12th May. Thanks to the parent co-ordinators, Ms. Leonard and Msgr. Coonan for all their work throughout the year. A big word of thanks to all the boys and girls who gave up their Saturday morning to sing in the choir. Thanks also to all the parents who brought them to the church.
Well done to our 6th Class pupil who recently came second in the Offaly Cumann na mBunscol Skills Competition.
Pupils in all classes became authors over the past couple of weeks and wrote books on a wide variety of topics. Lots of planning, creating and hard work resulted in some excellent books. This was part of the Write-A-Book Project organised by the Laois Education Centre. Well done to the children, teachers and parents for a great team effort.
For our Green School Work and as part of Active School Week we “Walked for Water” on Wednesday morning. This was to raise awareness among the children that many people throughout the world have to walk many kilometres each day to access water.
Active School Week proved to be very successful and great fun. All classes took part in a wide variety of activities including running, skipping, yoga, handball, soccer and football. We even had a céilí. Hopefully the children will keep being active especially as we approach the summer.
Thanks to our Active School Committee for all their hard work during the week.
Our quiz team took part in the national final of the CUDA Quiz which was held in Blanchardstown on Saturday 21st April. They finished in a tie for 9th place out of 20 teams from around the country. Well done for all the hard work over the last number of weeks.
This week is National Active School Week. We are looking forward to taking part in a wide variety of activities. Our Active School Committee has been busily preparing for the week ahead.
