Just one more sleep until the girls in Second Class make their First Holy Communion! They have been working so hard for months now and are really looking forward to having a super day tomorrow. We had a little celebration today in school and it was great fun.

 

 

 

On this really special day, we remember our friend and classmate Evie, who went to Heaven in September. You might notice some little touches of pink around the church (Evie’s favourite colour) as a little reminder of the beautiful soul we so wish was here to share in the joy tomorrow.

Thank you to all of the parents in 2nd class who have prepared their daughters so well for this day. I hope it is one filled with love, happiness and lots of special family time.

Much love,

Ms. Adams x

Wednesday May 16th is National WOW Day- Walk On Wednesday, so the Active School Committee will carry out a survey of how many pupils and staff walked to school and the results will be revealed at our school Assembly on Friday.

Third Class had a visit from four fire fighters from the North Strand today. The fire fighters spoke about fire hazards in the home and the importance of having a fire escape plan at home. All the girls were given fire safety packs containing a fire safety checklist to do at home. After the talk the girls were given the chance to use the hose and sit in the fire engine. They even got a little wet at the end! Great fun was had by all.
