Once a month our whole school gathers in our school hall to celebrate the achievements and efforts of our pupils. This assembly is run by our assembly committee, Ms McWeeney, Mrs Quinn, Mrs Lohan and Ms Milne.
Every month we have a theme for the individual awards.
Last week we celebrated our November theme: Science. Boys from every class was chosen to receive certificates for their efforts in developing science skills. Boys from Fourth class also gave a presentation to the school on their learning in science and on their work during Science Week.
Assembly is a great time to remind ourselves of the values we hold dear in our school:learning, creativity, co-operation and caring for ourselves and for one another. Our Students Council, our Erasmus club, our early morning hurlers, along with boys who volunteered to help around the school all got a special mention during last week`s assembly.
Tristan, in Mr. Duffy`s class was the recipient of two awards: one for his efforts in Science and another for learning Spanish and Irish in recent months. It is wonderful to see such delight in learning.
The theme for our December assembly is Art. Every class is learning about a particular artist and will decorate the hall with their representations of that artist`s particular style. We will surely be surrounded with colour and creativity for our next Assembly!
