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.
In conjunction with World Book Day, representatives of the parents association presented the pupils with a variety of books to supplement the library in our school. The children are thrilled with the books that arrived, as many new authors books are now available in the school. The staff of Seir Kieran's N.S. are also delighted with the arrival of these new resources.
We started back to swimming lessons when we returned to school after the Christmas Break. We are attending Birr Swimming Pool every Thursday.Three instructors are helping us in the pool and at the end of every lesson we get some free time to play with our friends.....very important!!!
Hazel Greene is a very talented artist and textile designer. She lives in Shinrone and runs Bramber Studio with her husband. We are very lucky to have Hazel working with the children for six sessions this term. At present the children are using acrylic paint and they are painting a rural scene. Keep an eye out for the finished product!
At the end of our school show the whole school joined together to sing Merry Christmas Everyone. Here is a picture of all of the children singing their hearts out.
