Baby Franki has been to visit us today with his mum. He has grown alot since we saw him last. He has 4 teeth now, his hair is longer and we think he’s looking more like a little boy than a baby. He is learning how to make sounds and take turns to have a chat. He can pick up things with both hands now and he can sit alone.

He also enjoys standing with mums help. We learned that his favourite lullaby is ‘Twinkle, twinkle’, but he also enjoys listening to us say some other rhymes like ‘Incy wincy’, ’round and round the garden’ and ‘Baa baa black sheep’. We are already looking forward to seeing baby Franki again!

We had a visit today from local songwriter and musician Patsy Cavanagh.

Through storytelling and song we learned  the plight of the Famine victims of Ireland in the 1800’s.

We also really enjoyed dressing up in the costumes of times gone by….See below photos of the production.


Today the pupils, teachers and the parents came together and dressed up in their brighest attire to take part in Relay for life’s  ”Rainbow walk’. Our walk was aptly named “Trek to the North Pole’ !

There has been approximately 130 Euro raised so far…Well done to all involved and thank you for your kind donations. Please see below some of the lovely photos taken on the day…..
