Today Father Christmas visited us. All classes sang him a song. He gave each class a tub of sweets. Every one loved him he was a sensation.Here is juniors and seniors.
Private Óisín O’Hagan came into visit us on Friday 18th December, 2015 to talk about his life in the Irish Army. Óisín is the father of Alex and Lily. Second class had prepared questions for the interview and we learned a lot about Army life. Óisín brought in some of the rations that soldiers have to eat with they are out on manoeuvres. We also got to send the big army jeep that Óisín has to drive. Thank you Óisín for coming into visit us! Here are some photographs and a video from the interview.
We wold like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone for taking part in our free dress day which raised €312.80 for Focus Ireland. We set ourselves a target of €100 so we are thrilled to have raised over three times that amount. Thanks to everyone for your kindness and generosity. You are amazing!
After many weeks of practicing, we did our Christmas Performance with the Music Generation teachers today. We performed songs like ‘A Blues’, Glory Be’ and Jingles Bells. For many of us it was the first time performing with our instruments in front of an audience and we were fantastic!
After learning about homelessness in our SESE First and Second class wanted to do something to help people who have lost their homes and found themselves homeless. We decided to organise a free dress day in order to raise money for Focus Ireland. It will take place on Friday December 18th. We would like everyone to bring in €1 or more if possible, and wear in their own clothes on that day. We are hoping to raise €100 for the charity. Focus Ireland provide many services for people who are homeless like giving out hot meals, advice and education. We are looking forward to our Free Dress Day and are hoping to see lots of Christmas jumpers!!!!
