1st Class will be performing a brand new nativity play called ‘Tinsel and Tea-towels’. In this play, children in St. Kevin’s are preparing for the annual Christmas play when some unexpected and unwanted visitors arrive to the school…..School Inspectors!
We can’t wait to perform our play for our families and for some of the other classes in St. Kevin’s.
Children in 1st Class can practise their songs in the Christmas Corner (top left-hand corner of the blog)… but children from other classes will have to wait until the big day to hear our songs!
On Friday, Mr. Sheekey and the Christmas Choir had a busy day spreading the Christmas cheer around Greystones. They began early with a portion of the singers going to Greystones Nursing Home to sing a few carols, which as always, went down a treat.
Afterwards, they made their way down to the dart station (where the rest of the Christmas Choir joined them) to raise money for Crumlin’s Children Hospital and raised a brilliant €253.19 for the great cause. Thank you to everyone who came down to donate and support the singing (and especially to those who joined in…).
Thanks to Mr. Sheekey for all his hard work organising the events and preparing the choir so brilliantly. We are all looking forward to the Carol Service on Thursday. Most importantly, a massive well done to our wonderful students who shared their songs with us all and for representing their school and behaving so magnificently. They really are a credit to the school.
Our St Vincent de Paul ‘Children Helping Children’ appeal was a massive success this year. The school would like to sincerely thanks all the boys and girls and their parents for their generosity and support. All presents will be delivered locally. The photo above only account for half of present donated. There were approximately 150 presents donated in total.
Christmas has truly arrived to Mr. McCarthy’s 2nd class. After creating our own wreaths and colourful snowmen by printing with balloons, Mr. McCarthy sent out an invitation and one of Santa’s Little Helpers left a special stocking outside our door! The elf told Mr. McCarthy that everyone can put in their hopes for Christmas or to send best wishes to others. The elf said that he will take them back to Santa before the holidays (but you still have to write a letter to Santa for presents!) Make sure you write down your Christmas wishes and put it into the stocking outside Room 17!
Ms. Murtagh’s class have been working so hard that Ms. Murtagh rewarded the class with a slipper day! The class wore their slippers for the day and we played Bop-it, drank hot chocolate with LOTS of marshmallows and watched a Christmas movie. It was great fun! Check out the video and leave us a comment.
Santa rang Mr. Vance a few days ago and said he was sending a few cheeky elves to St. Kevin’s infant classes to learn how to behave properly. During the break one of the elves got out of class and went to Mr. Vance’s office to play (see photo above). Keep an eye on the blog for more stories about these cheeky and troublesome elves!
