|6th Class pupils are currently learning about Cycle Safety with weekly lessons given by tutors Dave, Darragh and Ross from the RSA and Sports Ireland. Gaelic sessions take place weekly with Alan Fitzpatrick as well as our regular weekly PE stations and the regular active breaks. JEP (Junior Entrepreneur Programme) is well under way and the teams have been chosen. Guided Reading takes place daily and the groups started their new novels Goodnight Mr. Tom, Wonder and Private Peaceful in January. Confirmation takes place on March 30th and we have been diligently preparing in class and with a visit from Fr. John in February. The children have chosen names that are meaningful to them and have sent a slide image about their name to the parish for display in the church on Confirmation Day. The children and their families and teachers are very much looking forward to this special day in their young lives. We have also created some lovely World War Two-themed and Spring-themed art, as well as Confirmation artwork.|
