We introduced our Catalan visitors to Gaelic Football yesterday and they very quickly got to grips with the differences to soccer. Thanks to Mr Mc Coy for organising the Blitz and to everyone in P5 and P6 for their help in explaining the rules and taking the visitors under their wings. On the day Cork were victorious!
A big thank you to Bernie and the U14 girls who came last night to give our Catalan visitors a taster of camogie… they thoroughly enjoyed their experience as did the P6 pupils. It’s the turn of P7 tonight to host our Catalan friends, music and dancing at BlueBell Lane from 7 to 8.30pm, bring a jacket.
Thank you to all our very talented boys and girls who took part in Assembly yesterday morning. With P7 having a lie in after their Confirmation, Thursday night it was the children from P4, P5 and P6 who took the lead, reciting a poem written by P6/7 especially for the occasion, demonstrating Irish dancing and traditional music. Well done, you were great ambassadors for our school and Community.
Our Catalan visitors also treated us to songs in Spanish and Catalan as well as a fabulous gymnastics display. Thank you, we really enjoyed it.
