Pupils in 5th and 6th class and infants did some lovely paintings on the windows of their classroom with Sandra. A different project for them this year. They also created some lovely art work in class. Pictured below are pupils busy at work.
5th and 6th Class have created wonderful Christmas stories. The standard is really high this year. We will be entering the stories into the educate.ie Christmas story competition for next year’s Christmas annual. Hopefully we will get another publication!
5th/6th Class entered the above competition this week. There are two €200 vouchers to be spent on chess equipment for the school to be won. Below are the photos entered into the competition.

Thank you from the student council to all those who donated generously on Friday for St. Vincent De Paul. €276 was raised for the local branch with your help.
On Friday pupils can wear a Christmas jumper or santa hat and bring in E2 to raise funds for the local branch of St. Vincent De Paul. It is not necessary to wear either, their normal Friday clothes are perfectly fine if no Christmas jumper or hat. From the Student Council.
