Sound Workshop and Performance
The children in the Senior Room spent Wednesday morning learning about sound as part of their science work. Part of the project involved making didgeridoos - at one time there were 13 didgeridoos playing together! Just a little noisy...
In the afternoon, all of the children were treated to a show. We explored the different sounds made by a variety of pitched and unpitched instruments. One of the performers also treated us to lots of balancing and juggling tricks. It was very entertaining...make sure to look in the Gallery at the photos. The children's faces say it all.
We thank Georgina for coming into us on Thursday morning to teach us some Highland Dancing.
The children in the Senior Room are nearing the end of their workshops. Last week we were visited by Tony who came all the way from Co. Down to talk to the children about wind instruments. We had fun looking at flutes, fifes and even an enormous tinwhistle.
We thank Nan Leslie for organising this year's Quiz Sheets. We have sent home a number of sheets for each family to sell. Completed sheets may be returned to school or directly to Nan. This year's Quiz will be held on Saturday 7th November at 7 p.m.
The children may dress in costume or in their own clothes on Friday 23rd October for a donation of €2 to school funds. Friday 23rd October will be our last day before our half-term break. School will close at 3 p.m. and will open again at 9.20 a.m. on Monday 2nd November. We hope to organise a 'Spooky Walk to School' on Friday as part of our Green Flag work. We will confirm this later in the week.
We were delighted to have Mrs Gourley and Eli visit us on Friday and we are glad to see they are both happy and well.
On Wednesday this week, we will be taking part in an interactive drama workshop based on the life of Fionn MacCumhaill.
The provisional date for this year's Carol Service is Thursday 17th December. We will confirm this as soon as possible.
Thank you to Mr Barnett for all his work in the garden. Lots of lovely vegetables were used to decorate the church for the Harvest Thanksgiving Service and many more were sent home. This week the older children are planting onions.
