Nollaig Shona!

The Principal and Staff of St. Patrick's Junior National School wish all our students and their families a happy and peaceful Christmas.

School will re-open at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, 7th January 2009.

Second Class Nativity

All four of our Second Classes joined forces this afternoon to perform the Nativity Story. 

Room 10 told us the story of the Angel Gabriel appearing to Mary, Herod's decree to count all of the people, and Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem.

Room 11 told the story of Mary and Joseph arriving in Bethlehem to find the town very full. All of the innkeepers sent them away. They finally found a place in a stable.

Room 13 told the story of the angels and the shepherds on the hillside.

Room 14 told the story of the three Wise Men travelling from the East to see the newborn King.

Have a look at for more photos of their great show!

Senior Infant Show

Room 6 and 7 began our show today with "Ralph the Reindeer".

The elves in the North Pole along with Santa and his reindeer get worried when Rudolph is sick and cannot guide the sleigh. Ralph steps in to help!

Room 8 and Room 9 then performed "Whoopsa-daisy Angel", a forgetful and clumsy angel who gets a very special job - to tell everyone that baby Jesus has been born in Bethlehem!

Early Start had two fantastic performances this week of "Toby's Christmas Drum".
