On Friday February 1st, as part of Catholic School’s Week we celebrated Grandparents’ Day in our school. On that day we had circa 130 visitors – most of whom were grannies and grandads of our pupils. Our guests arrived at 11am on a beautiful spring morning and enjoyed the cup of tea which our team of helpers had ready. By the time the first group of children from Ms. Lyons’ and Ms. Mc Namara’s classes arrived in the halla we had a full house. To start things off, our senior pupils conducted a really lovely short prayer service and they then entertained us with some lively singing. Next up were Mrs. Noonan’s and Ms. Rocca’s classes who ensured that all present sat up and paid full attention (some with a tear in the corner of their eye) as these 5,6 and 7 year olds skillfully acted out their bilingual mix of poems and songs. Our final group of entertainers came from Ms. Sheehan’s and Ms. Walsh’s classes. Again this gang had the X Factor and they did themselves proud. In the days leading up to Grandparents’ Day Mrs Keane and some of our talented students had made in excess of 100 St. Brigid’s Crosses. As the grandparents left our school they were presented with these St. Brigid’s crosses as a souvenir of our special get together.
We’d like to say a big thank you to all the grandparents who joined us.
