We are coming to the end of our ten-week basketball coaching block with John and Marian Gargan. Our confidence and skills have improved enormously. John and Marian are kind, encouraging and really talented coaches who we love learning from!
Check out our fantastic entries for the annual St. Patrick's Day Art Competiton organised by Kinsale Tourist Office.
We marked St. Brigid's Day and also the end of Catholic Schools Week 2019 last week by making traditional crosses using reeds. Legend has it that St. Brigid (Ireland's patron female saint) used reeds to make a cross to teach a dying chieftain about God. Today, the St. Brigid's Cross is still hung in homes to protect against disease, sickness, fire and theft.
It took practice, skill and team-work to create the crosses, but we really enjoyed making them!
Need we say more?
Well done to our 4th Class pupil who recently donated hair to the Rapunzel Foundation. This is a charity that takes donations of hair in order to make wigs for people who have lost their own hair as a result of serious illness. We barely recognised our student when she arrived into school on Friday with her new short hair! What a fantastic thing to do - well done!
