There was a very positive feel around the school with everyone making an extra special effort to be friendly and kind.

Each class learned the song ‘Count on Me’ by Bruno Mars and did lessons around the theme of friendship. e.g. A friend’ship’ with all the class aboard, a friendship chain, kind deeds, secret buddy.

There was a competition run in each class also. There was such an array of talent submitted, from colouring and drawings to poems and stories. Congratulations to Daniel, Teresa Marie, Eoin, Troy, Aoife, Shannon, Sophia and Shakira who won in their respective classes.
