Wishing all our pupils, staff and their families a very happy Hallowe'en weekend. We hope you can get out and about on the bright days and have indoor fun on the wet days!
We thought you might like a little reminder of our Hallowe'en Fun Day on 23rd October. Thank you to EVERYONE involved. 👻🧛♂️🎃😮💀👽😲😱😉
P.S. Check out our film section if you would like to dance along with Rang 6 again.🎵
Congratulations to our 6th Class pupils of 2019/2020 who received the sacrament of Confirmation in St. Mary's Church on 29th August. The Confirmation ceremony was beautiful; a truly special day.
The girls in Rang 3 prepared for their First Holy Communion with their Second Class teacher, Ms. O'Connor and Berna, and also with their 3rd Class teacher, Miss Murphy. Their Communion Mass was celebrated by Fr. Billy Meehan on Saturday 12th September. The sun shone and it was clear that the girls and their families were full of joy and excitement. Thank you Ms. Conway, Ms. Keane, Ms. Murphy, Ciara and Karah in Rang 6 for their beautiful music and singing. Thank you to the teachers and Berna for the beautiful art work.

Saturday 16th May was a lovely sunny day, and we hope all our First Holy Communion children enjoyed the day with their families. The morning started with a lovely Mass celebrated by Fr. Billy at 11 o' clock in St. Mary's Church. We hope you were able to join the Mass. Thank you to Ms. O'Connor, Berna and Miss Conway who represented us all at the Mass. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your special day.
We all look forward to a day in the future when we can be together in the church and celebrate your First Holy Communion.
What fun we had at the Junk Kouture Fashion Show recently. Thank you to the staff and pupils of the Art and Music Departments in the Presentation Secondary School for staging this wonderful performance. Pupils from Rang 3 - Rang 6 were mesmerised by the stunning outfits and the exciting dance routines. We were impressed by the creativity, skill and effort of the designers. We were further entertained by singing and instrument playing between performances. Some staff members recognised past pupils and felt especially pleased to know these creative people. All in all, it was a lovely, inspirational morning. (And some children won Easter eggs. How's that for a lovely memory!)
In November we learned about “The Restaurant” and we opened our own pizza restaurant in the classroom. The service was always excellent J . We learned about food and created our own breakfast cereals with their own unique names and box designs. We did some fruit and vegetable printing-some of us even tasted the printing foods! We created 3 course menus in pairs and made some mini pop up restaurants in the small world area. This theme made us all hungry!
We had great fun in the classroom at Halloween! We made a lot of scary potions in our witches’ potions labs. We played Halloween games and made marshmallow monster eyeballs (we gobbled them up!). We tasted bairín breac and dressed up in our best costumes-teacher didn’t know she had in the classroom! We played haunted house and searched for spiders, skeletons and witches fingers in our sensory activities. Scary stuff….
We did some travelling in November when we set up an airport in the classroom. We had people working on the front desk and in security and we enjoyed taking off on the plane in the hallway. Some people’s luggage had to get a “heavy” sticker. Of course we had to make passports for our trips. We played with our lovely new wooden airport in small world and we explored how to make paper airplanes and had great fun flying them in the classroom. In junk art we made anything we liked connected to the airport, all of our airplanes were very creative.
We had great fun during our first Aistear of the year! In small world we had many accidents that had to be rushed to hospital (some even involving dinosaurs!). We set up our doctor's surgery which was very busy with all types of ailments. We made flowers for people who may be sick in hospital and made hospitals and doctor's surgeries with our construction materials. We had great fun finding the doctor's equipment in the sand and using our syringes and droppers in the water.
