The children of fourth class had a wonderful visit to the Déise Day Care Centre recently.
The girls in fourth class recently took up knitting under the guidance of their class teacher and Sr. Martina. While the girls were learning this new skill, so too were visitors to the Déise Day Care Centre. It was the perfect opportunity for the the two generations to meet and share a common interest. The children sat amongst the ladies, knitting and chatting, as if they had always known each other. It was a wonderful sight to behold.
The girls had also been learning about homes in the past and saw the visit as a perfect opportunity to gain eye witness accounts to what life was like growing up in the 40s, 50 and 60s. The girls devised questions and the ladies of the centre were only too delighted to recall what life was like growing up for them. The children were thoroughly engaged and interested in what they heard.
The visit culminated in a performance by the girls from fourth class. They sang two songs, as Gaeilge, that they had been practising for Seachtain na Gaeilge. They received a fitting round of applause from all at the centre as they had been great ambassadors for St. Mary’s PS.
We could like to sincerely thank the staff at Dungarvan Day Care Centre for affording us this wonderful opportunity and hope to visit again before the end of the school year.
