When I grow up I want to be.....

 

At some point in our school life we will hear the question - What do you want to be when you grow up? For most it can be a tricky question but not so for the children in Mrs Gavin's Junior Infant Class. The boys and girls knew straight away what they want to be. Firefighter, vet, hairdresser, doctor, teacher, postman, builder and nurse were just some of the answers that were given. What an ambitious bunch they are. During their art lesson this week, the children coloured in Lego men and women showing what they would look like in their dream job. I hope that when the time comes, they all manage to achieve their dream career.

Christmas Tales

This morning, Kevin Kelly from Ms Skelly's Fourth Class, treated everyone to a Christmas tale, which he read over the intercom. Kevin wrote the story himself. It was about a young girl who woke up in the night and found a stranger in her sitting room. She returned to her bed and fell back asleep. When she woke in the morning, she found lots of presents in her sitting room and quickly realised that the stranger must have been Santa!

Seoidín wrote about a young girl who found a mysterious box in her house at Christmas. She tried to find out who owned the box and failed. Curiosity got the better of her and she peeped inside the box. To her surprise she found a kitten looking back at her. When she checked with her grandmother, she was delighted to find that the kitten was her new pet!



Well done and thank you to Kevin and Seoidín for sharing your festive tales with us.

Christmas Art Display


The boys and girls from Mrs Farrell's First Class have been busy beavers over the last couple of weeks, producing Christmas art. Today, the fruits of their labour were on display in the hall for everyone to admire. Using many different art mediums - paint, coloured pencils, crayons and oils to name but a few, they created an abundance of festive artwork that can be hung in their homes or given as presents. There were penguins, Santas, robins, Christmas pyramids, Christmas candle logs, decorations with a marbling effect, paper chains, Nativity scenes and snow globes. The childrens' hard work certainly paid off as class after class visited the hall and gasped in amazement. Congratulations to all the children and Mrs Farrell. A great achievement!

The annual Christmas Food Appeal has been running in the school over the past few weeks and was promoted and co-ordinated by Mrs Farrell's Second Class. They left boxes in every class and visited regularly to give a gentle reminder to everyone. Today, Ms Mary Mc Knight from the Mullingar Parish Centre came to the school to collect the donated food and was overjoyed with the huge response. Ms Mc Knight's car was full to bursting as she left. She expressed her thanks and assured the children that Sr Finbarr and her team will deliver the food to families in need in the Mullingar area. Thank you to everyone who supported this worthy cause.
