The boys in Mr Duffy's class are all making their Christmas cards for residents in Moorehall Nursing home. They're enjoying colouring their cards and also writing to let the recipients know just about what life is like for a typical eight year old these days.
Yes, the cards will be quarantined before reaching the residents. And the hope is to build on the connection between the generations-we have so much to learn from one another.
Meet the boomwhackers! The boys in Ms McWeeney's class are making music together. Each length of pipe is tuned to a particular note in the scale. The trick is to whack it hard- and at the right time!
Ready boys? "Joy to the World...."
Hurrah for footpaths! We can walk down to our parish church now! On this crisp winter's morning we enjoyed our 2.48 km ramble past the old red brick school and met Mornington playgroup on their morning walk!
We got a glimpse of Beaulieu House on the other side of the River Boyne and passing Mornington Park, Donacarney Woods and Glen Boann we finally arrived at the Star of the Sea Church.
The boys went to see the crib there and to look around the church itself. They met another surprise visitor on their way-long time veteran of Donacarney school caretaking staff Patricia Black.
All agreed that it was a tour worth taking. And yes, that footpaths can keep us all connected.
