St Brigid’s Day

The senior room pupils were very busy making St. Brigid’s crosses early this week. They weaved rushes to create the cross shape. Although the process was challenging each and every child persevered and made their own special cross. They then brought them home to their families. We hope the kindness shown by St. Brigid is something the pupils will show to others.





We hope everyone who attended our nativity presentation, ‘Prickly Hay’ at St Laurence’s Church on Sunday, 17 December enjoyed it. It is certainly one of the highlights for the pupils who each year perform a different interpretation of the Nativity.



Well done to the senior room pupils pictured for attaining perfect attendance for the month of October. They all received a certificate to mark their achievement. We are all so proud of them. Keep it up.

Our trip to the Library

Story time at the Library

Looking for that special book

Treasure Hunt

Checking a book out of the library

On Friday, 26th October, the whole school paid a visit to Ballyfermot Library.  We were met there by Lara and her colleague who gave us a tour of the library, explaining how books are sorted, showing us special places of interest and how to borrow books if we have a library card.  For the younger children, there was then ‘story time’ in the small children’s area, while the older pupils engaged in a library treasure hunt.  This tested the pupils on the information they learned from the tour of the library. They broke into teams and together they solved all the questions and clues. After a little snack, the children each chose a book to borrow from the library. We hope to visit the library again as a group from time to time during the school year.

Rise and Shine for Childline

On Friday, 20th October, all the pupils and teachers of St Laurence’s sat down to breakfast together to raise money for Childline.  We ate Cheerios and had fun while helping other children.  A great start to the day!!
