On the 19th we had a surprise visit from Santa where we got a selection box each.
On 21st December, the whole school left Killurney at 7:40am to attend the Panto in Limerick. This year`s show was Sleeping Beauty. It was very funny and we all really enjoyed it.
5th and 6th class Confirmation masses ended last Sunday after the third week.
Our school Christmas hamper raffle took place last week. We raised €513.
In classroom news, both the Senior and the Junior room are doing the theme of An Nollag in Irish this month. The senior room are doing a Japan project and are making kimono art and haiku poetry art which will be hung up in the school. We also did explanation writing on why Christians celebrate Christmas along with traditions about Christmas. The Junior room learned all about Tom Creane and his South Pole Expedition this month. The read the story “Tom Creane`s Rabbit” and write diary entries from Tom on board the Terra Nova. They also wrote Christmas stories in Narrative writing.
We are looking forward to our Christmas holidays and are excited to find out what 2024 holds for us.
