Brilliant Brass Band

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.

Communions

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 .

Minibeast Hunt in Infants

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.
