We are very fortunate to have the services of Rico the Therapy Dog on Thursdays. He came around to every class to pay a visit. He was so well behaved and very cuddly. His owner told us that she was afraid of dogs when she was little but now she owns a dog and is not scared anymore. She has helped some of our pupils with a fear of dogs and Rico has also listened to some children reading!
Several of our girls in Ms. Phillips’ and Ms. Murphy’s classes got creative to raise funds for St. Vincent de Paul!
They made wonderful coloured bracelets that sold like hot cakes! Lots of people chose rainbow colours or bracelets to match the colours of their favourite teams. Mr. Fitzgerald was very happy to buy a couple of “purple and gold” bracelets.
Due to their creativity and selling skills, WoolMania (the girl’s “company”) raised over €100. Very well done girls!
Any boys or girls who wish to get dressed up on Friday may do so – but do not have to. Any student not wishing to dress up should just wear their school uniform instead.
The school will close at the normal time (of 1.30 for Infants and 2.30 for all other students) on Friday, the 25th of October. It will reopen at 8.45 on Monday the 4th of November.
