The children in the Senior Room had a great day in Brownhall on Wednesday. The children were able to take samples of water from the Blackwater river and determine the quality of the water. We were treated to a guided tour around the grounds of Brownhall and even heard some ghost stories. The school was presented with a signed copy of the book, 'John Hamilton of Donegal'. Our sincere thanks to Paul Gallagher for organising this trip for us, to Jonathan Mitchell for helping and to Mrs and Mrs John Hamilton for their hospitality, kindness and Jaffa Cakes.
Have a look at the photographs in the Gallery.
Despite the inclement weather on Friday and the mud, the children enjoyed the opportunity to meet up with the children from St. Ernan's and St. Eunan's for some games of football. We would like to say thank you to Gerard Gallagher and the Naomh Bríd Committee for inviting us along and also for funding our recent lessons in school. We especially thank Patrice Rooney for her work in school over the past few weeks and her work on Friday, those who helped organise and referee the games and the very kind gentlemen who made us tea!
We are hoping to bring all of the children on a trip to Rossnowlagh on Wednesday 29th May. As part of our work for our third Green Flag, the older children will be studying the seashore as a habitat.
Hopefully, between now and then the weather will improve.
Well done to Katherine, Aimee and Bobbie who won prizes in the competition held recently by the Northwest Vintage and Heritage Club.
