Did we ever imagine that there would be days like this?
Half of our school are at home, the other half in school. It's been great having the Junior end of our school back in. Gliondar Mara paved the way with their arrival on the 22nd Feb and now we've a week down for our other Junior Classes.
And it was time to meet and greet the Senior end of the school on Friday.
Almost two hundred pupils and staff tuned in to last Friday's Virtual Assembly. The theme of the assembly was our school motto "Ár ndícheall í gcónaí" reflecting our commitment to always try our best.
And the stars of this assembly certainly pulled out all the stops to give of their best!
We met Joseph's pet hamster, Albert Einstein and heard about his Dad's great daily runs for charity.
We were entertained with jokes by Tyler and head of his super February 100 km challenge.
Nathan read his poem about Lockdown. While Anthony inspired us all with his skill with the Rubrik's cube, Arlo read from his book about animal evolution. Piotr told us about his adventures with Rock Art, Ali talked about his amazing art work and Cillian spoke resolutely about his empowering beliefs.
And we ended the Assembly with the very catchy Lockdown Song, composed, sung and strummed on the ukelele by Harry!
It certainly was an amazing assembly and a great way of connecting with all those lads who are working hard on their skills and hobbies at home.
