What a busy day our Nursery gang had today. We welcomed Rotarian Gabriel Byrne and presented him with the shoeboxes kindly donated by parents. On behalf of the Newry Rotary club, Gabriel expressed his thanks and appreciation to the school community for our ongoing support. Then our little stars shone brightly during their nativity performance for a packed out hall, full of proud family members . They were fantastic and each and everyone of them played their part so well.
As with previous years we are supporting Newry Rotary Clubs Annual Shoebox appeal. Many thanks to those who have returned their boxes already, if you wish to join in, shoeboxes can be collected in the Nursery . The final day to return your shoebox is this Thursday – 13th. Thanks
Today the Nursery class made their annual trip to the Post Office to post their Santa letters. We were greeted with such a lovely welcome and the class were delighted with their Advent Calendars. We really appreciate the effort you put in to make our visit memorable. Our sincere thanks . It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas .
