Seachtain na Gaeilge

Seachtain na Gaeilge concluded today with a Ceilí sa halla and with a very funny visitor. Giggles an fear grinn came to each class. Bhí sé ag caint Gaeilge. He made lots of balloons and made a lot of children laugh.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

We have been celebrating all this Irish this week. A ceolchoirm was held in the hall on Wednesday. The children had great fun listening to the music and dancing. Assembly today involved all the children in the school singing songs, saying poems, playing games and watching Irish dancing. Raidió Corduff has been on the airwaves all week telling us all the nuacht. 1st and 2nd class children are looking forward to their Ceilí tomorrow. Comhghairdeas to Ms O'Donnell on all her hard work in organising the week.
Happy St Patrick's Day.

Senior Infants Yoga

The children in Room 6 love doing yoga. Today they were doing Cosmic Kids Yoga. It is great fun as they create all the movements while listening to exciting stories.


Book Week 2014

The children in St Patrick's have had a very busy week. It is book week. There is a book shop in the school hall. Lots of children, their parents and grandparents bought a lot of books. The school will get a percentage of the books sold to buy more books for our school library. We would like to thank all the parents and children who supported this event.
An illustrator, Steve Simpson came into the school today to show the children how to create and draw different characters. During the week every class also got an opportunity to go and visit the Library at the shopping centre. A wonderful FREE resource for everyone in the community.

A big thank you to Ms Greene for organising a wonderful and busy week for everyone.
