Catholic Schools Week 2015

It is Catholic Schools week  this week. We have been learning about how we should live like God wants us to live. We love one another. We are kind to each other. We share and we are honest.

We celebrated Grandparent’s Day on Wednesday. We made beautiful portraits of our nanas and grandads! They look fabulous!

Granny Peggy came to visit Room 13 today.

Granny Peggy came to visit our classroom today for Grandparents’ Day.

She told us lots of interesting things about when she was in primary school in Dublin.  She didn’t have to wear a school uniform when she was in school!  She also had to do 7th class because she was too young to go to secondary school – you had to be 14.

We really enjoyed our visit from Granny Peggy.  Thank you and Happy Grandparents’ Day from everyone in Room 13.

Clowns for Haiti pencil case appeal

We are taking part in the Clowns for Haiti pencil case appeal this month in St Mary’s school. The Clowns for Haiti charity aims to support school children in Haiti following the earthquake that struck in 2010. Out of the 4,000 schools in Haiti, 3,640 were destroyed.

The Clowns for Haiti visited our school before Halloween and asked for our help. They want us to fill a pencil case each for the boys and girls in Haiti. All of the pencil cases will be flown over to Haiti and delivered to the children by the clowns.

The pencil cases were distributed this week and the children in St Mary’s are busy filling the pencil cases with pencils, crayons, treats, hairbands, small toys etc! Imagine how excited the Haitian children will be when they receive your gift!

We will take a picture of all the pencil cases when they are all returned to school.

Let’s all be part of this simple act of charity! Watch this space….
