World champion Caradh O'Donovan came in to visit us here at St. John of God NS. She coached the girls in a variety of exercises that she says are the key to keeping our bodies strong and healthy. She also spoke to us about how we should never give up on our dreams! We are certainly going to take her advice as Caradh has represented Ireland in 3 sports and is now training really hard to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Have a look at some of our photos from this special training session.
Check out this tweet from Caradh after she came to visit! We are so happy to see she enjoyed being at our school!
We had Grandparents' Day on Thursday 1st February. The 5th Class organised a special prayer service up in the hall and afterwards they came to visit all the children in their classrooms. It was such a special day and we really loved having you all in to visit. Thank you for sharing your stories and playing games with us.
We had a great day on Friday 27th October as the whole school gathered together in the hall for our annual Céilí na Samhna. Each class put a lot of practice into learning their Céilí dance. Paddy decorated the hall and Ms. DeNuinseann was our MC for the day. Have a look at the photos to see some of the creative and spooky Halloween costumes from the day.
We hope that everyone is safe and well after Hurricane Ophelia.
We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning.
The Department of Education have advised that all schools remain closed tomorrow.
Please stay safe, stay indoors and don't take any unnecessary journeys!
