Third and Fourth classes had a really special treat today when Castleknock College’s Brass Band came to play for them. The conductor, Mr. Fallon explained all about the instruments they were playing and the boys demonstrated each one . They played some great tunes including songs from Ed Sheeran and Hozier. Mr Fallon encouraged everyone to clap along. We were delighted to welcome back eight past pupils who were playing, drums, violin, trumpet and saxaphone. We hope they all come back next year to play for us again.
We are very pleased to welcome the Brass Band from Castleknock College to our school this Thursday. They will perform for the 3rd and 4th classes.
It has been decided to postpone the cake sale that was scheduled for Friday to the end of May.
To clarify: The 6th class graduation is on Tuesday 28th June and the May Mid Term break is Monday 2nd – Friday 6th inclusive. These dates were incorrect in the newsletter that was emailed to parents. Apologies.
We had a beautiful day on Saturday for the first day of communions. This year it was a little different. Two classes , Ms. Gallagher’s and Ms. Costello’s made their communion together which meant the church was a little fuller. The children all sat together at the top of the church so it was easier for them to sing and say their prayers. The Junior Choir came along and sang some extra hymns .They were conducted by Mrs. Collins and Ms. Walsh played the organ. Afterwards everyone was invited to the Sports Hall where once again the PTA were on hand to provide refreshments .
Over 900 children headed off in the sunshine today for the Annual Sponsored Walk. Lots more pictures on our website .
Next week is Active School Week. We will be setting aside extra time each day for some physical activities in each class…. why not walk or cycle to school ?
Mrs Collins brought her class to the garden yesterday to look for bugs and see the goldfish. They had clipboards to draw any interesting things they saw. They counted lots of fish in the pond and even say the big white daddy fish.
