Pupils are busy practicing for their Christmas show entitled ‘Santa’s Hat’. The school concert is great at giving the children confidence to perform. This year however things are a little different. Unfortunately will not be able to invite parents in to view our show but we will record it and send a copy home to each family. There has been months of hard work involved in putting together this performance. We hope you enjoy it.
All pupils have been involved in creating a beautiful crib which will be erected at the turn of Broughall. On the 8th of December Fr. Houlihan will come out and bless the crib and give the children a Christmas Blessing. The boys and girls creative talents are clear to see from their work. Well done boys and girls. Also a big thank you to Michael Carroll who cut out the characters for the crib.
As you are all aware we have been involved in raising money for the charity ‘Hooves 4 Hospice’. We had our sponsored walk and our Hooves 4 Hospice Day where all pupils dressed up as farmers. Well done to Dan for choosing the name Holly for our calf. Hooves 4 Hospice were amazed at the kindness and generosity from everyone within the school. We paid for the calf and raised an additional €1060 for the charity. Last week Michael brought Holly up to our school. Pupils were so excited to see Holly and we know that Michael will take great care of her on his farm. After 12 months Holly will be sold at a special auction and all the proceeds from the sale will also go to Hooves 4 Hospice.
Ear to the ground are producing a show about people who have lost loved ones to cancer. They were very interested in what we have achieved in our school in relation to Hooves 4 Hospice. Ella McSweeney from ear to the ground will be coming out to talk to the pupils on December the 9th and the show will be aired on TV before Christmas.
