We had a wonderful and emotional day today as we celebrated the end of another school year. We began with our end of year mass in the church this Morning. 6th class were presented with their Graduation Certificates. We also presented Fr. Connaughton with a plaque to remember the 40th anniversary of his ordination.We say a big congratulations to him! We then had some food prepared by 6th class and they entertained us with their stories, poems and memories of their time at school. A number of 6th class pupils presented a slideshow of pictures throughout their school years. They really are a talented group of pupils! 6th class then enjoyed their own party in the hall. We wish them every success and happiness in the future. :)
We congratulate one of our 6th class pupils on her recent achievement in writing! Louise Hickey came 4th in a national writing competition having written a beautiful poem entitled "The Oak Tree". She was presented with her award in Galway and has had her work published in a magazine. We are very proud of you and we look forward to reading lots more of your work in the future!!
The Oak Tree by Louise Hickey
As I walked through the forest, close by the river,
I closed over my jacket and started to shiver
The birds in the tree tops, the wind whirling round,
Peaceful as ever, for that was the only sound,
As I walked up the mountain, down by the stream,
I came across the oak tree, I visualised in my dream,
ever so silent, all on its own
But not once did it give out, not once did it moan
It just stood big and tall
Not once did it scream, not once did it call.
I felt ever so bad living this pleasure
For everything I got from this tree was a treasure
So from that day on I visited the tree
And didn't care if anyone laughed at me.
So private, so peaceful, all on its own
Life is so sad to treasure alone.
All school tours took place on Friday 6th June 2014. Ms. Kirk's and Ms. Keenan's class went to the Crystal Maze in Cavan, Mr. Hickey and Mrs. Tully's class visited to Let's Go Activity Camp in Gormanstown and Mrs. Rowe's class went to Tanagh Adventure Centre. A wonderful day was had by all!
