The Nursery would like to thank Mrs O’Hagan, her P3class and Finnegan’s Nursery for coming over this morning and performing “Operation transformation”on our garden. They weeded, planted and watered a new sensory patch and added splashes of colour and scent all around. As a thank you we all shared morning snack outside and the ice lollies went down a treat. We then made the most of the sunny day with the P3s and Nursery enjoying an outdoor play session together, finishing our impromptu fun day with a magical dramatised story in our Willow Hut. School days really are the best ……
A reminder to all that Confirmation takes place tomorrow at 5 pm in St. Oliver Plunkett’s Church, Forkhill. School closes at 1 pm, at which time all pupils will need to be collected from school, as there are no buses available for the home run.
What a beautiful day to celebrate the first day of May. The Nursery class and the “Tubbies” Mother and Toddler group decorated a tree beside the Community hall to celebrate the ancient festival of Bealtaine. Each child participated and really enjoyed their outing. Check out the tree when you are passing, it looks really well.
We are delighted to hear this exciting news from St. Joseph’s Crossmaglen which involves a number of our past pupils…they are organising a fundraising event for a trip to Cambodia in February 2020, in which two teachers and 10 pupils are going to help build a home for a less fortunate family.
