Thursday night the children involved in the Brass Band took part in their annual concert in the Church and what a fantastic night it was! Bands from Kilkenny, Graigunamanagh and Leighlinbridge joined forces to give us an evening of musical entertainment. Well done to all involved.
We would like to thank Norman sincerely for his hard work and dedication to this school. He volunteers his time every week to share his love of music with us. We reallly do appreciate it.
We had a fantastic evening in the Church last Wednesday at our Carol Service. The children sounded beautiful and the Church was packed with proud Parents and Grandparents. Big thanks to the boys and girls (and their teachers!) for their hard work and for the energy and enthusiasm they put into their singing. Our musicians also deserve a word of thanks – Bronagh, Nikita, Moya, Liadh, Ciara and Eimear kicked off the Carol Service, playing two carols on their Brass Instruments. Our tinwhistle players did a super job also. This year Kellie joined Mrs Byrne in accompanying the Choir and the music was fabulous – well done! Thanks also to our Parents Association for organising the teas, coffees and treats in the Parish Centre afterwards.

Surfaces around the school are still icy so please exercise extreme caution, don’t take any chances and don’t worry about being late. Please do not use the side gate or path, use the main gate only. Children will be brought straight to the hall once they arrive in the morning. Take care. Thank you
Due to extremely icy conditions and unsafe surfaces around the school, we will remain closed today (Monday 11th December) Sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
We had great fun recently watching raisins take flight in jars when fizzy 7up was added.
We thought they would never move then, to squeals of delight they started bobbing up and down in the jars!
We were exploring our sense of taste recently.
We tasted foods that were bitter, sour, salty and sweet.
Need you guess which foods were gobbled up the fastest!
Some are acquired tastes. We might try some more the next time.
A thoughtful expression!
