Brand New Year and as busy as ever!
Apologies for not bestowing NEW YEAR'S GREETINGS on you all until the 1st of February but as usual we have been so busy in Scoil Chiaráin! So much has been going on!
Our after school homework club is back up and running now! Tuesday and Wednesday from 2.30 - 3.30.
Mindfullness with 6th class takes place every Thursday after school. Craig has written a piece about it and it can be found on the class page of Room 11.
Second class are making great strides in their hurling skills with Ronnie, after school every Monday. If anyone else from 2nd would like to join there are places available!
Ms McLoughlin's drama group gave a great perfomance as the "Lost Boys" of Peter Pan, at a talent showcase recently! They were superb!
6th class have been particularly busy over the past few weeks! Check out their class page over the next few days to find out all that has been going on with them!
To mark the beginning of the centenary year for 1916, 6th class and Room 11 visited Glasnevin Cemetary. It was a wonderful trip!
The boys attended a SOAR workshop in school recently. To find out more about the SOAR foundation, click on this link www.soar.ie It was a really unique experience!
Finally, for the month of January, the boys completed their Ceremony of Enrolment to mark their commitment to undertaking the responsbility of making their Confirmation. We will support and help them in this journey.
"Live today the way you want to be remembered tomorrow"
Dillon Burroughs, American author
That is the life lesson we try to share with the boys of our school on a daily basis. They are reminded that they are never too young to make a difference. Saying hello, sharing a smile and being kind and friendly can make all the difference to someone else.
Then there are days when we go beyond those small gestures and our ability to change peoples' lives goes beyond the doors of our school. That happeened last Friday, and always happens around this time of year. The boys of our small, wonderful school created 17 food hampers and raised over €600 for St. Vincent de Paul. I think this is an incredible achievement, and shows the boys how easy it is to make a small difference in someone else's life.
We want our pupils to live their lives, being kind and caring, sharing with others what they can of their time and friendship and talents. If we can live like that today, then tomorrow will be a lot easier. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.
Skipping to our hearts content today with Mark McCabe!!
