All pupils wore their festive clothing & accessories on Friday 10th in aid of Brain Tumour Research. Thank you to all the children and families that donated. We raised €140. Donations can still be made on the link below if anyone was unable to take part in the 10km walk on Sunday. Thank you for the treats that were waiting for all the staff and children on our kitchen table Monday morning!

Music Generation

Music Generation recorded all children playing their musical instruments on Friday for their 2021 programme. Pupils have been preparing all week and were excited to be recorded. We can't wait to watch it shortly! 

The children enjoyed an interactive Christmas story with one of our parents, Eugen, on Friday. We thoroughly enjoyed Coco the puppet and the interactive games that Eugen had prepared. It was lovely to have pictures of the story & of the real places in Bethlehem today. We were also thrilled to be gifted two books and some nativity resources for our school.
