On Sunday 14th of May the children from 2nd class received the sacrament of first Holy Communion. It was a beautiful ceremony and we were very lucky that there were only a few showers of rain in the afternoon!
In two weeks time, all the girls and boys on the hurling and camogie panels, will be playing in two finals in Birr. Both teams are training very hard. We are all training everyday down on the field. We have had skills sessions with Hughie who comes every Tuesday. On Fridays Emmet from Offaly Sports Partnership comes to help us improve our fitness and agility levels.
We are playing Coolderry in both finals and we feel like we are prepared for the challenge.We wish all teams involved the best of luck.
On the 12th of May our school had a visit from Little Makers, Kate and Ross. Classes from 1st to 6th, took part in a lego making course. Our theme was based on the Roman times . We made temples, lookouts, villas and barbarian houses. At first we worked in small groups and towards the end of the lesson, we joined all of our pieces together to make a Roman lego city.
We all had so much fun making lego creations. Kate and Ross are two very kind people and we are very grateful for them coming to our school.
On the 5th of April the students from 2nd Class made their First Confession. Fr.McEvoy performed the ceremony and the children were involved in the readings and the prayers of the faithful. After the mass everyone went to the GP room in the school for some cake and a cup of tea to celebrate the occasion. Second class will make their First Holy Communion on the 14th of May.
