Our school choir, from 3rd to 6th class, went carol singing in the Quayside Shopping Centre on Tuesday 20th December. Ms Hunt played the guitar, Ms. Reilly played the violin and Ms. Ferguson and Gráinne helped with the singing. Ms. Coyne and lots of parents and friends helped with the collection. Stephen from 6th class made this short movie from some of the videos and pictures he took. Well done Stephen!
They collected over €570 which they are very proud of. They will be making a donation to a group who support families with premature babies.

We are learning yoga in our class.
We are learning about different ways of breathing. Our tummy gets bigger and smaller as we breathe in and out.
We listen to the music and we move with it. We pretended we were going on holidays and we learned how to do different moves like the boat, the aeroplane and balance on a surfboard.
Today we stood like a Christmas tree and everyone held hands in a circle. We all had to balance. It is a lot of fun.
Here are some pictures of our little Christmas robins. We made them with clay. They are all so different.
Sixth class really enjoyed a recent visit to Junior Infants .
We read the children some stories and helped them with their puzzles and jigsaws .

Fiona Corcoran from the “Greater Chernobyl Cause” charity visited our school recently. She traveled all the way from Cork. She came to thank us for making a banner for a recent event, which was held in the Northside Community Centre, to raise funds for this charity. It was a local woman Mary Martin who asked us to get involved. Fiona and her co-workers do some fantastic work in orphanages in Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Russia. We watched a brilliant clip from RTE`s nationwide about the excellent work done by Fiona and her team.
