Congratulations to the children in Second Class who received their First Holy Communion. They were excellent. Thanks to Marina and all the pupils in Third-Sixth Classes who played music and sang in the choir. Thanks to Mrs Mc Quillan and Kathy for helping prepare and display the children's work. Thanks to Miss Traynor for all her hard work in preparing the children and their beautiful art work. Thanks to Fr Early for a lovely ceremony. Thanks also to the Parents Association who hosted everyone in the Community Centre afterwards. We are blessed to have such a wonderful team!
The children have been having great fun for the past few weeks doing GAA training with Monaghan county star Rory Beggan!
As part of our Green School's Activities, Miss Traynor's class visited our local water treatment plant. They learned all about the water cycle and how the water we drink is purified before it reaches our homes. Thank you so much to Claire Sherlock who organised this fantastic outing for us.
This year we are working towards our Green Flag for Water Conservation. For this year's action day, everyone wore blue. We took part in lots of water related experiments and activities. It was great fun. A huge thank you to Mrs Finnegan for all her hard work and preparation.
We were delighted to welcome some of Killylough FC to St Dympna's and wish them well on their way to an Ulster Final.
Mrs Coll's class went to the Iontas Theatre in Castleblayney to view the play 'Me Mollser'. This was an adaptation of the Plough in the Stars, showing life in 1916 through the eyes of a child. It was both enjoyable and informative
Congratulations to Grace O' Malley in 5th class who had her review of the new book 'Arrivals' by Brian Gallagher published on seomra ranga. You can read the review at the link below:
