Christmas 2017

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Fr. Michael McGrath and Fr. Tony Gilhooly visited the school to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with the children from 1st to 6th class in their Advent preparation for Christmas.

Christmas Show in the Temperance Hall

Junior Infants, Senior Infants, 1st Class and 2nd Class visited The Temperance Hall for the Christmas show ‘Rudolf saves Christmas’ by the Talisman Theatre Company. It was a wonderful experience for all the children (and grown ups!) who engaged with drama and interacted with the characters. The children thoroughly enjoyed it.


The Circus Corvinni visited the school on Monday 18th December. The children enjoyed performances of juggling, balance arts, comedy acts and a breathtaking contortionist act. Thanks to Stonepark Parents’ Association for co-sponsoring this treat for the children.

Bring and Buy Sale

6th class hosted the annual ‘Bring and Buy’ sale on Thursday 21st December. The sale generated the usual excitement and Christmas spirit and was enjoyed by all. These budding entrepreneurs and business people of the future baked buns, advertised, collected goods, painted nails, held competitions, sold raffle tickets, priced goods and wheeled and dealed to make this event a huge success. Míle buíochas Rang a Sé.

Winners in the raffle were: Nelly 4th class, Mia 3rd class, Mia 2nd class, Daisy 3rd class, Jessica 5th class, Aoife 2nd class, Troy 3rd class, Ally 3rd class and Roisín 6th class.
