It has been a very busy time for the girls of 2nd Class and their teachers, Ms. McGrath and Mrs. Gildea. They celebrated their First Holy Communion on the 28th of April 2018. The girls were very busy all year preparing for this special day. The beautiful artwork created over that time was admired by all on the day.
A few days later the girls enjoyed a very special party to celebrate this special occasion.
Maths For Fun is a marvellous initiative run in St. Mary’s PS to help develop the children’s mathematical reasoning. This initiative is run under the guidance of Mrs. Curran and facilitated by parents of the children in each class. The children in 2nd Class thoroughly enjoyed their six week block.
Another initiative run by Mrs. Curran, our Home School Community Liaison coordinator, is cooking and baking. Lena, a local chef, enables the children and their parents to prepare healthy, wholesome meals.
While completing all these activities, the children still found time for plenty of learning. They studied and learned many facts about castles in Ireland, which culminated in a trip to our local St. John’s Castle.
Busy times indeed!
