Bhí Rang a Ceathair ag canadh as Gaeilge agus bhí Rang a Cúig ag déanamh Rap as Gaeilge. Tháinig Clan Cluana go dtí an scoil agus rinne said dráma dúinn. Diarmaid agus Gráinne an tainm a bhí ar. Tháinig an ceoltóir John Spillane go dtí an scoil fresin. Chan sé amhráin dúinn i nGaeilge agus i mBéarla. Bhí gach dúinn ag canadh agus ag gáire. Chan sé Beidh Aonach Amárach agus An Puc Ar Buaille. Bhain gach daoine taitneamh as.
On the 4th of April the Easter we held an Easter Bonnet Parade in the hall. The school asked each family to bring in two euro. The money raised is going to Mr. Sheehy's Kenya Education Project. All the classes made their bonnets and showcased them on a catwalk. The boys and girls who made their bonnets got to have a no uniform day. A great day was had by all and everyone really enjoyed it. Mrs. Coffey gave all children in the school an Easter chocolate treat to say thank you. Miss Coleman was responsible for setting up and organising the parade. A big thank you to her for all her hard work.
On Wednesday 1st of February 16 girls travelled to the Spikeball County Final Day in the Presentation Gym, Killarney. The school had 4 teams that each played 5 games. One team reached the final. They played Gneevguilla in a very exciting game. Both teams fought until the end. The Mercy lost out by 1 point. Congratulations to all involved.😀
A trip to meet Dairena Ní Chinnéide
Ms Dalys 5th and 6th class went up to the library to meet a English/Irish author Dairena Ní Chinnéide. She was really kind to everyone. We did lots of different activities and had lots of fun doing them. We learnt about the life of an author and she inspired us to write and read as much as we can in English and Irish.
World Book Day
This year we had world book day . It is the day when children in our school come dressed as their favourite character from their favourite book.I. 4th class children had to say their top 3 favourite books and went to the top of the classroom and talked about their favourite book.
For FAB week (a.k.a friends week) 4th class sang a song from friends called 'I'll be there for you'. They were on stage singing, while the 5th and 6th were singing too but not all of them! All the pupils did different things in their classrooms about friendship.
On the 10th of March 6th class from the the Holy Cross Mercy, Lissivigeen, Monastery, Loreto and Loughguittane made their Confirmation. It was a great day for all schools involved. Our class was confirmed in S.t Mary's Catheral by Bishop Ray Browne. It was a wonderful day where we received the gifts of the Holy Spirit and became full members of the church. The ceremony was beautiful and was greatly enhanced by our school choir's lovely singing.
