Today we held our first assembly of the calendar year. The pupils of 5th class celebrated Grandparents Day yesterday and three pupils from the class were invited to open today’s assembly with their grandparents prayer and poem.
Master then spoke about the upcoming events in the school. On 20th of February we will host our second ever Trashion Fashion. Our first hosting of this event was a huge success and we look forward to more unique, creative designs. Before that, though, we have an important visitor in the school next week. We will have an expert come to talk to the children of the school on Wednesday about internet safety. Later that evening they will speak to the parents on this subject.
After this, Master called out the achievements of the Junior School pupils for the month before the presentations of the Junior School awards.
The members of the student council were then called up to receive their student council badges before they spoke to us about their efforts during the past year. Click here for their speeches.
The Senior School achievements were then called out before the announcement of the January award winners and presentation of trophies by their teachers.
Miss Sweeney’s class have been busy (with the help of Ms Clarke’s 6th Class) making St. Brigid’s Crosses today as we celebrate St. Brigid’s Day, and, in what is turning into an annual tradition, two pupils from Ms Sweeney’s class presented the Master with a new St. Brigid’s Cross for the school.
This Sunday, the pupils of both 4th classes will travel to the RDS to sing alongside hundreds of other primary school pupils and the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland at the Peace Proms. This is one of the highlights of the school year, and today, we were treated to a pop medley that they will perform on the day.
Before we finished up we had an impromptu celebration for three pupils who celebrate their birthday today!
