Easter Celebrations

Easter Prayer Service

We had a lovely Prayer Service in the hall, which everybody watched in their classrooms via Zoom. Mrs O’ Shea’s 3rd and 4th classes did a great job saying the prayers and telling the Easter story.

Raffle Prize Winners

The draw for the Easter hampers took place after the Prayer Service and we had a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny himself to present the prizes! Congratulations to Keelan in Room 1, Sophie in Room 17 and Mia in Room 16! We hope you enjoy your hampers.

Congratulations! We are delighted to tell you that €1,200 was collected. Thank you so much everybody for your support. This money will go to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Visit of the Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny visited all the classrooms and everybody got a treat from our very generous Parents’ Council. There was much excitement, dancing and fun!

Wow , it’s the Easter Bunny!
Hi Bunny!
Let’s dance!

 

A big thank you to the Easter Bunny for coming to visit us and to our Parents’ Council for all the treats.

 

Easter Art

There was lots of great Easter art to be seen all around the school. We hope everybody enjoys their holidays and we will see you all back at school on Monday April 25th.

 

Save The Bees Campaign

We here in the Pres are looking for your help in saving our bees. One third of all the food we eat is pollinated by bees and thirty percent of Irish bees are in danger of becoming extinct. We are gathering collection cards from Supervalu. We are not asking you to change your shopping habits. Due to all your support, we now have 600 cards and we are hoping to gather another 300 by May 12th so that we are in with a chance of winning a share of €50,000. If you shop in Supervalu, or know anyone who shops there, we would be grateful for your help. Thank you to everybody who brought in cards and to Ms Moran for all her work on the project. Míle buiochas!

Everybody is learning all about our bees.

Easter Raffle

These are the yummy Easter egg hampers that were in our Easter egg draw, which took  place on Friday April 8th . Many thanks to Ms Millea and Ms O’ Shea for all their work on the raffle. There were  also Easter eggs to be won in each class. Tickets were €1 each or 6 for €5 .  All proceeds go to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Thank you all for your generosity.

Every Child A Reader Project

We got some wonderful books from the Every Child A Reader Project. They have been delivered to our senior classes as part of their library/accelerated reading programme.

Spike Ball Blitz

On March 31st the girls from 5th and 6th participated in a Spikeball Blitz in The Watershed. The other  teams taking part were  from John of God, the Gaelscoil, CBS, and Del la Salle schools.  Our girls had a great day and really enjoyed taking part in the blitz.
