We celebrated the last day of term with an assembly in the hall. We sang some Christmas Carols and lit the last purple candle on our Advent wreath. Mrs McGowan called out the names of all the children who had excellent attendance and they all received a selection box!
We raised over €1,100 euro for some very worthwhile charities over the last month. We presented a cheque to Nicole and Taylormay for Friends of The Coombe. Their little sister has spent a lot of time in The Coombe Hospital in Dublin but the good news is that she has now been moved to Sligo and is much closer to home for Christmas! Our Carol Singers had great fun carol singing in Johnston Court Shopping Centre and the money they collected was presented to Sligo Social Services to help those most in need this Christmas. We also presented a cheque to our past pupil Emma Robinson, the Sligo Rose of Tralee, who will be swimming on Christmas Morning in Rosses Point to raise funds for her trip to Chernobyl to help the sick children there. We collected this money on our non-uniform days this week.
Tonima and Kamil received prizes because their art work was chosen for our 2015 St. Edward’s Christmas Card. Ross and Darwin in 3rd and 4th classes received a special prize from their teachers for their vocabulary work over the last few months. Well done everybody and have a happy and safe holiday!
