Newsletter - Thursday 24th March 2016

Dear Parents and Carers,

As we approach the Easter holiday we would like to say a big thank you to you all for supporting our school.  As you will have heard in the news there are more changes to education and schools that have been prescribed by the Government.  We will keep you fully informed of the changing situation as and when more information arrives.

St Patrick’s Day and St Joseph’s Day

5I’s class assembly was all about St Patrick.  Well done to 5I who took us on a journey of St Patrick’s life and works especially his message of the importance of the Trinity. 5I’s Irish dancing a combination of a jig and a reel was complicated and showed true collaboration and team work. Well done again!

Thank you to Clodagh Year 6 and Caoife Year 2 who performed for the Infant St Patrick’s Day assembly.  They were amazing!

Sport Relief fell on St Joseph’s day so we combined the two. It was non-uniform and wear something sporty. In the morning Year 6 led the whole school through some energetic dance moves for a ‘Wake and Shake’ fitness session.  Well done to our dance leaders and thank you to all pupils who participated so cooperatively. In the afternoon we had our traditional St Joseph’s Disco. It was lovely to see the children enjoying themselves – needless to say the adults were worn out at the end of the day!

Year 5 Easter Production

The Year 5 Easter production was beautifully poignant and a sensitive portrayal of Our Lord’s final days before his resurrection. Well done to Year 5!

Easter Bonnet Parade

How exciting to see all the ingenious bonnet designs in the infants on Thursday. You were all brilliant!

Easter Prayer
Lord, the resurrection of Your Son has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom to know what we must do, the will to want to do it, the courage to undertake it, the perseverance to continue to do it, and the strength to complete it.
