Private Gerard McCaffrey visited our class on Monday. We all learned so much about life in the army. Gerard was very patient with all the curious questions. Needless to say, army and missions was the subject of many play groups during playtime!
The Board of Management has confirmed that Órfhlaith Mealy has been appointed to the post of Principal Teacher. Ms. Mealy is currently Deputy Principal of Scoil Treasa Naofa, Donore Ave., Dublin and has also served as Acting Principal in that school. She will begin in Leighlinbridge after the summer holidays.
Many thanks to the parents who helped us Faith Friends as part of our preparation for Confirmation . We enjoyed ourselves!
Garda Annette and Tom came to visit our class this week and talk to us all about safety both in the car and in our community. Annette was so kind, she even allowed some of us to try on her uniform! Tom then spoke to us about his uniform and the ‘funny hat’ that he brought with him. Some of us got to try on ‘real handcuffs’! We even got to sit in the patrol car and turn on the siren! Tom talked to us about the motorbike. The boys were very intrigued about it and all the switches and levers on it. We then got to sit on it! What a thrill! We finished up with a big ‘bualadh bos’ to Annette and Tom for a very informative and demonstrative talk. Cops and robbers was the theme of Playtime that day!!
