Friday's classroom..the forest...under a blue sky and October sunshine. We spent the entire day outside, tramping through woodland, paddling in the river and jumping in muddy puddles. We fished and we foraged. We named bugs and named trees. We put away our books and put on our wellies. We had the most perfect day - our thanks to Paul, Jonathon and Alan for helping us fish, to Shailagh for sharing her wonderful knowledge of trees, to Keith Corcoran for his ghost stories and ensuring that nobody will sleep tonight, to Jenny and Mr Barnett for helping and finally to Mrs Hamilton of Brownhall Demense for her hospitality and facilitating our visit. If only all Fridays could be like this...

Although we are always trying hard to raise funds for ourselves, we believe that it is important to support other causes from time to time. We will be holding our 'Cheerios Breakfast Together' morning on Wednesday 12th October. Cereal and milk will be provided for the children in return for a donation of €2 (or whatever you would like to donate). Money raised will be donated to Childline. The children will need to bring their own bowls and spoons!
We look forward to seeing everyone in the Community Centre at 12.30 p.m. on Thursday 14th October.
We are delighted to have Brian Donaghy from C.E.F. rejoining us on Thursdays. We have missed his lively guitar and fun stories.
I can't believe I am actually typing this already! The provisional date for this year's Carol Service is Wednesday 21st December (which is the evening before we close for Christmas holidays). We will confirm this as soon as possible.
We will be joined by Teresa from the Energy Hub on Tuesdays. She will be running iBop dance lessons for all classes.
