We had a fantastic day today when some grandparents’ came to visit. They came to our classrooms and answered our questions. We found out lots of information. The grandparents were invited to visit one classroom and we all had different topics to discuss. Junior and Senior Infants wanted to learn about the first day at school. First and Second Class wanted to learn about games that the grandparents played at school. Third and Fourth Class wanted to hear about equipment that grandparents used in school and Fifth and Sixth Class wanted to learn about school tours and extracurricular activities.
After the class visits the Sixth class pupils served tea and refreshments in the hall and the grandparents all had a little chat. Sixth class pupils made buns, cakes and apple tarts with some of the parents and grandparents yesterday! We would especially like to thank Ann Dunne for organising the ICA ladies to come in and work with the children. Our thanks also to Lorraine Boyle and Roisin Holmes for helping the children with the baking. Finally we would like to thank Barbara Keane and Catherine Woods for their help in serving the refreshments.
Some more grandparents will be in school on Thursday to help Third and Fourth class to make St. Brigid’s Crosses. We make one for every family in the school. Fr Daly will bless the crosses at our Friday Assembly.
Thank you to all the ICA ladies, parents and grandparents who made this a wonderful week.
